Collective Worship at Loxley C of E Community Primary School
Whole school acts of collective worship are held at the beginning of each new school day and are an important time for the whole small school community to come together as a Christian family:
- To learn from the teachings of Jesus and the Bible
- To sing and pray together
- To celebrate achievements
- To allow quiet times for reflection
- To discuss important issues.
Our Christian Values
Our worship for 2019-2020 follows six core Christian values...
Our children are encouraged to demonstrate and develop these core Christian values, all the time, in all they do. We have a reward system, called 'Catch Me...', where we recognise the demonstration or development of any of these core values in our children by signing their 'Catch Me' card. When they receive four signatures on their card, the child receives a small prize, e.g. a wristband displaying one of our core Christian values or a bookmark/pencil showing a quote from the Bible. Lots of children enjoy busily collecting LOTS of these prizes!
Our Collective Worship Team
In 2018, we established a Collective Worship Team of pupils, led by Mrs Emma Edgar, our RE Coordinator. The aim of the Collective Worship team is to represent all of our pupils in strengthening the spiritual life of the school.
This enthusiastic team for 2019-2020 currently consists of Ellie and Eulalie from Acorn Class, Stan and Will from Horse Chestnut Class, and Lola and Isaac from Sycamore Class. Mrs Edgar and the rest of the team now meet fortnightly to discuss themes and ideas for collective worship. Mrs Edgar also supports the team in planning to lead our Collective Worship for the whole school, at least once every half-term.
The group also enjoy opportunities to represent at school at wider Christian events in the parish and diocese, such as the annual Christingle Service at Coventry Cathedral.
