At St. Michael’s each day begins with an act of worship. These can take many different forms, for example on Monday our Vicar takes the assembly, which is generally based on the lectionary and often links with the church service held on Sunday.
On other occasions we encourage a variety of visitors to the school, to enrich our worship and provide the children with examples from a variety of Anglican traditions. The Head teacher takes assemblies which are linked to SEAL resources and develop social, moral and cultural understanding through bible passages, stories and reflections. Class assemblies are always a highlight. Each class delivers one class assembly each year, to which we invite parents in to school to share with their children.
At St. Michael’s, RE, collective worship and our whole ethos are based on the teachings of the Church of England. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship or RE lessons. However, the withdrawal of pupils from formal education and/or worship would not isolate them from the Christian teaching, which the school provides.
Our School Prayer,
This is our school, let peace dwell here
Let the rooms be full of contentment, Let love abide here
Love of one another, love of life itself and love of God
Let us remember, that as many hands are needed to build a house
So many teachers, governors and children of good will are needed to build a school
