Collective Worship

Collective Worship at St Luke’s

Every day our school community comes together for collective worship. As a Church of England school, our collective worship is an expression of the school’s Christian vision. Through experiences of prayer, stillness, worship and reflection our children develop an understanding of Christianity and faith in today’s world.

Every day, a different member of staff or clergy leads our collective worship:

  • Monday and Tuesday worship times are led by a member of senior staff
  • Wednesday worship takes place at St Luke’s Church and is led by a member of clergy
  • Thursday worship is led by a member of senior staff
  • Friday worship celebrates achievement across the school and recognises children who have demonstrated our core Christian values

Once every term, each class leads an act of worship and presents what they’ve learned to the rest of the school. Parents and carers are welcome to join us to share in their child’s learning.

We celebrate the major Christian festivals throughout the year. Parents and carers are invited to join us for these special services at St Luke’s Church. These include the Christmas, Easter and Harvest services, as well as our annual Year 6 Leavers’ Service. Whilst collective worship will always reflect the Christian ethos of our school, we respect and acknowledge the variety of religious observances which are represented in our school and within our wider community. We also acknowledge that there are those of no faith who have chosen to be part of our school.
