Our Collective Worship policy:

As a church school we believe that every person, every child and every adult is unique and special with God given gifts and talents which is our job to nurture and cherish. We aim to develop happy, confident, loving and caring children who look after and value themselves, each other and their world. We ensure every child feels valued and flourishes with their unique personalities and talents in all that they choose to do. We are an inclusive school and our vision, though distinctively Christian, welcomes and values all faiths and cultures within our diverse school community. Our school’s core values of happiness, peace, truth, respect, teamwork, dedication, trust and love sit at the heart of our school community and underpin every aspect of school life.  


Happiness: "The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving." (Psalm 28:7)


Peace: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” God. (Matthew 5:9)


Truth: “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” (John 1:8)


Respect: “Treat others as you want to be treated.” (Luke 6:31)


Teamwork: “If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” (Ecclesiastes 4:10)


Dedication: "So I have also dedicated him to the LORD; as long as he lives he is dedicated to the LORD” (Samuel 1:28)


Trust: “Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” (Pslams 9:10)


Love: “Do everything with love.” (Corinthians 16:14)

Challenge for trust:


In Collective Worship we are learning about trust and so the children have been set a challenge to create a trust wordle so we can dig deeper as to what trust is and means. Please complete these by 1.10.19 and return to Mrs Gresswell in Robins. I can wait to see them!

Reflection time on friendship:

By allowing children more reflection time we have had a lot more deep spiritual thinking about the discussions throughout the day but especially in Collective Worship.
