Our Collective Worship is Christian in its nature and will normally, over a week, include stories to illustrate the theme, time to think and reflect, opportunities for prayer and for singing or worship, opportunities to celebrate positive values.
This term we are continuing to look at the meaning behind the lines in the Lord's Prayer, making links with our own lives and with our school values. We will also be exploring the meaning behind our school logo - the Bishop's Mitre, looking at the key roles of a Bishop and how we can learn from their example. Also this term, we will be preparing for and reflecting on the events of Easter. This will culminate in two services held at St Michaels. These services will be planned and prepared by the pupils. Families will be warmly welcomed to attend these.
Running through all of this will be our school values that, in the Bible, are collectively called ‘the fruit of the spirit’. (The Bible, Galatians Chapter 5, verse 22 and 23).

Please do ask if you would like any more information and please do ask your child about the current themes and stories besides how they might be demonstrating the values in school and at home too. If you have some examples please do share with us so we can celebrate them together.
Through our Religious Education curriculum, which follows the Somerset Agreed Syllabus in line with the majority of Somerset schools, we introduce children to major world religions and secular views about faith. Our school is firmly rooted in its Christian foundation however and we will always reflect this, however our purpose is to empower children to think for themselves, beginning to equip them so that in the future they may be informed to make their own choices and decisions whilst reflecting tolerance, respect and compassion.
