Collective Worship

Collective Worship at Holy Trinity CE is inclusive, invitational and inspiring and forms an important part of our school life. Our Christian vision and values link closely with each aspect of our Worship. Beliefs and customs of world faith traditions are respected and valued. Collective Worship is led in an invitational way so that people with a range of beliefs may attend with integrity. It is a time of the school day which is set apart and valued.

During Worship, children learn the distinctive features of different Christian traditions using a structure which they know and trust, along with the seasons of the Church's year and the Christian Festivals. Children are given choices, options and independence in how they join in, reflect and learn together as a community.

Our Worship provides an opportunity for the school community to stop and come together; to reflect and to share; to discuss and explore ideas - further developing our spirituality. Our Worship enables all children and adults to ask big questions about who we are and why we do what we do. 

Parental Withdrawal: Worship is regarded as special time which wholly reflects our ethos as a church school.  It is an inclusive opportunity for those of all faiths and none.  We respect the right of parents to withdraw their child/children from acts of Collective Worship on grounds of conscience.  However, as Collective Worship is central to our ethos, we would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this decision with parents.
