Daily Worship

Here at RMS we organise our Collective Worship around focusing on a Christian value per half term.
We are following the Roots and Fruits Programme

"A tree is known by its fruit"

Matthew 12.33

 

The twenty-first century Primary school classroom is a vibrant environment characterised by exploration, discussion, discovery and reflection. Lessons are carefully planned to engage a range of different learning styles and actively promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The expectation is, therefore, that collective worship, which offers expression to all that is of worth and indeed to all that is sacred in the school community, will likewise be inspirational and keenly relevent to the lives of the children.

 

 

Our pattern of Worship

We have an altar with three candles, representing the Holy Trinity. After a warm welcome, we invite the children to consider an aspect or possibility they may not have considered before. This may use the context of story, picture, music or poetry. We hope this then opens up a consideration of a different perspective, followed by opportunity to reflect on the new learning and respond through action, thought or spoken word. The children are encouraged to think about how they can take their new learning and use it in a way that makes a positive difference to themselves and others, both within school and in wider society.

The following is a list of values we consider essential for the children at RMS to nurture and develop (it is by no means an exhaustive list):

Generosity, Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship, Respect, Thankfulness, Trust, Perseverance, Justice, Service, Truthfulness.

 

Our collective worship is led by the Headteacher, Deputy and Assistant Heads, the Church, the Children, Curriculum Coordinators where national/international days are celebrated and outside agencies.
