In our church school, the daily Act of Collective Worship is an important part of the school day, when the whole school joins together for a period of prayer and reflection. Children are given the opportunity to plan and perform in some acts of collective worship. Although our emphasis is on Christianity, we learn about, and from, other world religions. Our collective worship sessions are also sometimes linked to our PSHE themes. We stress the similarities between religions and try to understand, accept and respect each other’s differences. Children may be withdrawn from participating on religious grounds if parents make a request.
