Other opportunities for prayer take place within the classroom at the start of each day, before and after lunch and again at the end of each day. Prayer in the classrooms and in assemblies always includes use of symbols and a focal point for prayer which is appropriate to the liturgical season, for example, Lent, Advent or Easter. During all these times of prayer, both staff and pupils are involved in leading and participating. Each class prepare their own Collective Worship each week and as a school we meet each Wednesday for whole school Collective Worship.
Our children are fortunate to be able to experience the richness of the liturgical life of the church in many ways throughout the year such as the Stations of the Cross during Lent, the celebration of the sacrament of Reconciliation , and a joyful Nativity and Carol Service at Christmas.
In addition to this we have a celebration assembly every Tuesday during which key messages from that week's Gospels are relayed to the children. Our SMSC programme is also interwoven through themes and current issues each week.
