Christianity in our school

 

As a church of England (Controlled) school, Christian Values are at the heart of our school, allowing pupils to worship, grow and develop in a secure, happy and creative environment.

 

Collective Worship

As a church school we place great emphasis on learning to live the Christian ethos. Our weekly collective worship takes the following format:

Monday: Values based whole school collective worship led by the Head Teacher.

Tuesday: Values based whole school collective worship led by a representative from our local church or our school Worship Group

Wednesday: Values based whole school collective worship led by a teacher

Thursday: Values based whole school collective worship led by a teacher

Friday: Whole class celebration assembly/whole class assembly. Parents are invited to attend these and then are welcomed back to the classroom to see children's work and take part in activities with the children.

 

Worship Group

Mrs Elson leads Worship Group on a Friday afternoon. It is attended by children in Years 5 and 6.

The children spend time in prayer and reflection as well as planning special church services and collective worship which they deliver to the whole school once every term.

The Worship Group were instrumental in developing our School Vision and Values. (see the Power Point in how our vision was created).

The pupils in this group take the lead on Harvest and Easter charity appeals (Rugby Foodbank and Transforming Lives for Good - Make Lunch).

The Worship Group are currently working towards;

Consulting classes on developing their classroom worship spaces

Developing a Reflection Garden

Designing a School Values Day

Developing links with a school in Mozambique which is linked to our local church

 

Our School Prayer (Adapted from the Coventry ICON School Litany of Reconciliation)

All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

The hate which splits country from country, colour from colour, rich from poor

Father forgive

The jealousy of people and countries to own what is not theirs

Father forgive

The greed which damages other people and the rest of the earth

Father forgive

Our envy of the life and happiness of others

Father forgive

When we don’t care about the suffering of people who are trapped, homeless or in danger

Father forgive

The abuse which hurts ourselves and others inside and outside

Father forgive

The times when we are big-headed and think we know better than God

Father forgive

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ forgave you.

Amen
