Our Collective Worship runs in line with our vision around the school community being ‘rooted and grounded in love’ (Ephesians 3), and helps pupils to understand our 5 Commitments of Care, Creativity, Collaboration, Courage and the Christian Faith within a spiritual context.
This Collective Worship policy has been designed with our school community in mind. It reflects the law (the requirements of the 1988 Education Reform Act & the DFE guidance on Promoting Fundamental British Values as part of SMSC in Schools) and strengthens the distinctive ethos of the school as an Anglican Methodist primary school.
Forest of Galtres Anglican Methodist Primary School is required to provide daily collective worship for children (except for those who have been withdrawn by their parents). This is usually part of a daily assembly. The Headteacher/leader for Collective Worship and the lay Chaplain are responsible for arranging the daily act of collective worship, in consultation with the governing body.‘Consider, with deep and frequent attention, the peculiar circumstances in which you stand’
In accordance with the school’s Trust Deed, it must also reflect the Anglican andMethodist character of the school, although its precise nature may vary according to contextual considerations such as the ages and level of understandin of the children. As an Anglican Methodist school we see Collective Worship as central to school life and as something which should have a positive effect on the behaviour and attitudes of all throughout and beyond the school day.
