Elmley Castle C.E. First School

Where a great start matters

Religious Education and Collective Worship

Children throughout the school are taught Religious Education, based on the Worcestershire Syllabus for R.E.  During their time at the school, the children cover aspects of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Sikhism and Hinduism.

Collective Worship

Children attend a daily act of Collective Worship which is broadly Christian in nature. These are currently organised as follows:

Monday – Collective Worship led by the Mrs Brown

Tuesday – Collective Worship led by a member of the church community / a visitor

Wednesday – Singing Worship led by Mrs Roberts

Thursday - Collective Worship led by Mrs Underwood

Friday - Celebration Worship led by the Mrs Roberts or Mrs Davies

Parents are invited to join us for Celebration Worship during which children have the opportunity to share the work they have being doing in class during the week. Selected children also receive certificates for their contribution to our school and value leaves for those who promote these attributes in our school. 

As a Church of England school we value our Christian distinctiveness. All classrooms have a spiritual area which highlights the core values that our school embodies. Prayers are said daily and our children learn a variety of Christian hymns and songs.  We also have worship focus days which concentrate on important messages of the  Bible and the example that Jesus gave us. 

Parents are reminded that they have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of the Religious Education and Collective Worship provided. Under such circumstances, the school ensures that children are fully supervised and engaged in purposeful activities.
