Collective Worship


All children take part in a daily act of Collective Worship, which is wholly or mainly of a Christian character and can draw upon fables, stories, legends and current affairs.  Collective Worship at Stoborough Primary actively promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development. We believe collective worship should engage and and inspire our children and be relevant to their lives. We encourage our pupils to take ownership of collective worship and they regularly lead whole-school and class worship. 


Each half-term, our worship theme is linked to a Christian value, one of our school values and our PSHE (Jigsaw) theme. Each week, the children are given the opportunity to explore a question to develop their spirituality. 

Weekly Collective Worship 

Collective worship includes prayer, song and reflection. As we enter our times of Whole School Worship, each class brings a lighted candle to symbolise unity and to remind us that in times of worship, we enter the light of God. 


Our weekly Collective Worships follow this pattern:


Monday: Whole School Worship

Tuesday: Clergy/Visitor led Worship

Wednesday: Songs of Praise 

Thursday: Class/Phase Worship 

Friday: Celebration Worship/Worship Reflection Time
