Assemblies & Collective Worship

Collective Worship is an integral part of our school. An act of worship takes place each day, and is led by the Headteacher, Deputy Head, members of staff or visitors to the school. Our classes take it in turns to lead Thursday morning assemblies and parents are invited to these. Our Parish Church is St Sebastian’s in Great Gonerby, and we also have connections with St Wulfram’s in Grantham. We visit church regularly and the clergy conduct acts of worship both in church and in school.

Each term we have different themes for our assemblies and we also focus on one of our core values. This helps to embed a deep understanding of our values as well as supports pupils’ social and emotion learning too. Additionally, we look at celebrations of different world faiths:
