Collective Worship

We believe that Christian worship in a Catholic school is concerned with giving worship, glory, honour and praise and thanks to God. It is our loving response, in word and action, to God’s invitation to enter into relationship, made possible through the work of Jesus Christ and the witness of the Holy Spirit. Our motto; ‘Let Your Light Shine’ is taken from St Matthew’s Gospel and captures our belief in the unique quality and ability of every individual.

Our aim is to ensure that the talents and strengths of every young person is nurtured, encouraged, developed and celebrated. Collective worship affords our pupils and staff to nurture, develop and celebrate their faith.

Collective worship provides the pupils and staff the opportunity to:

  • Praise and worship God
  • Develop as a community-based in Christian values
  • Nurture spiritual growth
  • Explore moral issues and develop social understanding
  • Experience a variety of styles of praise of worship
  • Participate and respond, through active involvement in the planning, leading, presentation and evaluation of worship
  • Participate / celebrate Catholic festivals.
