Our daily act of collective worship in school fulfils legal requirements and is planned to create a setting which encourages reflection and personal worship.
We have a weekly theme which is linked to learning in other areas of the curriculum and encourages children to relate Christian teaching to everyday life and learning in school.
Whole school worship takes place twice during the week with a member of the clergy leading one of those sessions and the Head or Deputy leading the other.
Key Stage worship takes place once each week when children worship in a smaller group and is led by the Key Stage Manager.
Class worship is held once during the week and class teachers share this worship time with their own children.
Celebration worship takes place on a Friday afternoon.
On special occasions and at regular times during the year services take place at Christ Church when we invite our whole school community, children, staff parents and governors to worship together.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from any act of worship, although this would be unusual in a Church school such as ours.
