Collective Worship at Cavendish
Our daily Collective Worship is based on important individual and community values whilst meeting the statutory requirements to provide daily acts of collective worship. By definition, the word ‘worship’ is about giving ‘worth, honour and respect to’.
Collective Worship is the special time put aside each day in our school for ‘worship’. The word collective opens up the opportunities of individuals from many different faith backgrounds and those with no faith background at all.
Our acts of collective worship are predominantly Christian but each week has an overall theme, and thoughts of the day. They link to key school values and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development too. Special festivals from various faiths and national themed days influence the order in which our collective worship is organised. Important values and skills are reinforced throughout our collective worship cycle.
All pupils are actively involved in a variety of religious services and acts of worship throughout their time at the Cavendish including; Harvest Festivals, Christingles, Easter services, Christmas Services and Leavers’ celebrations.
Cavendish Primary School has a commitment to serve all children (whatever their family’s religious or secular beliefs) as we have our values at the heart of our school community where we live, and learn together.
