Collective Worship

We provide a daily act of collective worship. Worship lies at the heart of Christian life and at the heart of our school community. This reflects the traditions of this country which are, in the main, broadly Christian. At Radnage Church of England VA School this takes many exciting and spiritually developing experiences for all the children. Collective Worship often makes links to our school's core Christian Values. We follow the Anglican Church Calendar when planning Collective Worship and the school have built up an excellent relationship with the Church to support this work. Children are encourage to plan, lead and evaluate worship throughout the year, with children regularly leading prayers, meeting with Mr Long and governors to evaluate worship and join in with acting out Bible stories. Our Worship Leaders are responsible for setting the space for worship to take place in and leading the gathering, prayers and sending out. 

We believe that the outcomes of Collective Worship should be:
  • Social experience
  • Awareness
  • Spiritual experience
  • Development of Skills
  • Development of Knowledge
  • Confidence
  • Ability to pray

Every child has opportunities to take part in Collective Worship and develop spiritual reflection.

The timetable below shows which Collective Worship we have each day. These are planned by staff and Foundation Governors termly and monitored by the Head Teacher and Foundation Governors.

Collective Worship is lead by all teachers, children, Foundation Governors, clergy and other visitors to the school. This enriches the worship experience for the whole school community. 

The Coordinator for Collective Worship is Toby Long
