At St Peters children gather daily for collective worship (assembly). We expect collective worship to be:
The organisation of Collective Worship is as follows:
The Collective Worship Team
The Collective Worship Team is a group of Year Six pupils who have responsibility for planning, monitoring and evaluating collective worship as well as overseeing the organisation of assemblies in the hall.
Members of the team write an application stating why they would like to join the group and what they feel they can offer. the applications are reviewed by the SEnior leaders and children are selected. They then work with mrs Morris to plan the overview of assemblies, choose those which they would like to lead and organise a rota of monitoring. Collective worship leaders liaise with visiting Governors to share their work and discuss their next steps.
Being a Collective Worship Leader is a highly valued position for which there are many applicants. However, there are opportunities for all children to lead Collective Worship if they wish to do so and we have enjoyed assemblies led by pupils in other year groups throughout the year.
What happens in Collective Worship?
Collect worship is varied and that is what makes it interesting to children with different learning styles. However, there are some key aspects which always remain the same.
