As a worshipping community, we actively encourage our families to worship together at home. We have a programme of school- home worship which reflects the Liturgical Year and supports our parents/carers in worshipping with their children at home.  

The feedback received so far from both parents and children has been very positive! 


Each day in school begins and ends with a prayer and of course we pray at other times of the day too. Reception and KS1 gather, as do KS2, to worship together, This is led by Mrs Hodges our Headteacher with the support of some of the children. The worship is based around a piece of scripture and we have a weekly Ethos Statement which is displayed around school and which supports our spiritual, personal social and emotional growth. 

The weekly Ethos Statement is displayed on the Homepage of our website. 

At least once a week a small group of children in each class will plan and lead a worship for their own class. The younger children are supported by the staff but as they grow in both confidence and skill they become independent in doing this.

We come together for Mass at different times of the year. Mass is celebrated by Canon Phil in school although groups of children make the walk to church too to celebrate Mass there.

We have a group of children who are trained altar servers and serve in both school and the parish. We also have members of staff who are Eucharistic ministers in church and serve in school Masses too.

We also share many Liturgies together during the year, reflecting the church's calendar, such as Christingle.

I am pleased to say that all our Masses and liturgies are very well attended by parents/carers, family members, governors and parishioners who are always most welcome!
