In our school, Collective Worship underpins all that we do, prepares us for the day ahead and allows for a time of community, quiet, reflection and prayer. During the current pandemic, we are unable to meet together but daily acts of worship, led by school staff and clergy, are streamed into our classrooms.
Daily Act of Worship:
Our daily act of worship is contained within our morning assemblies.
Monday 9.10 am - Whole school worship led by Mrs Henson to introduce the value of the week
Tuesday 9:10 am - Whole school worship led by the Epping Ministry Team
Wednesday 9.10 am - Whole school worship led by Mr Sharp to re-inforce the value
Thursday 9.10 am - Whole school worship led by SLT - a giant of faith
Friday 9.10 am - Whole school celebvration assembly led by Mrs Henson - this is currenlty shared on our facebook page, when COVID restrictions allow, paretns will be invited back in to school to join in.
Acts of worship are carefully planned around Christian Festivals and are an opportunity to help children learn about and acquire our Christian values in a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment. Every act of worship contains music, song and prayer and a quiet opportunity for reflection.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from daily acts of worship. We would encourage you to discuss this with Mrs Henson, our Headteacher.
Once each term we celebrate the Eucharist in school: to celebrate the life of St Andrew in November, at Easter and to mark the end of our school year.
Led by a member of the clergy, this is a joyful occasion where children take an active part in readings, singing, prayers and drama. Parents are made very welcome at this special act of worship.
