Collective Worship at Husbands Bosworth CE Primary School takes place daily in accordance with the provisions of the school/academy Standards and Framework Act 1998. Worship is therefore an important part of the school day as it gives us the opportunity to come together as a school community to encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promote Christian values through the experience it offers to all pupils.
Collective worship will be treated like any other part of the curriculum when it comes to matters of planning, delivery, resourcing and evaluation. The content and methodology of Collective Worship should be varied and there should be evidence of this in planning.
Each term there is a theme for Collective worship based on the Diocese of Leicester provision. The themes chosen are broad enough to allow all those leading worship to approach the theme from their own perspective and link to our school’s Christian values. This will mean that by the end of the week the pupils will have had the opportunity to reflect on the theme from a variety of viewpoints. Alternatively class teachers may develop their worship from themes and events that occur on the curriculum during the week.
This pattern is flexible and on occasions it is recognised that teachers may feel that they need to respond to local or national events.
