A booklet is produced containing a list of thoughts, reflections and prayers which can be used in from periods or assemblies. We aim to involve students in leading assemblies, especially in form and Year Assemblies.

Under the law, parents have the right to withdraw students from a religious act of worship or Religious Education.  If you wish to exercise this right please contact the Headteacher.

 


 

Policy Regarding Collective Worship

Following consultations between the academic staff and the Governing Body, the following aims for collective worship were agreed and adopted.  In the context of the School community, which is itself “collective” (that is, bringing together students of varying social, religious, ideological backgrounds), “collective worship” should:

    • provide students and teachers with a time to reflect on matters of concern to individuals in the School, to the School as a community, and in the wider community of Whitby in which the School is set

    • provide an opportunity to reflect on “what it is to be human”.  Issues here might include: Who am I?  How do I relate to others? The environment – natural and man-made; Good; Evil, etc.

    • develop listening skills, learning to be still, appreciate, think, value and care for things and people beyond themselves.   They are also encouraged to grow in awareness of the “non-material” aspects of existence.

    • within this context, encounter and explore those aspects of the Christian tradition (and others as appropriate) which articulate and illuminate the above.  For example: stories, poetry, hymns, songs, prayers; symbols; rituals; festivals; “experiences” (i.e. of adherents), life stories.

    • In the above contexts, provision for collective worship is made through year group and whole school assemblies and dedicated form time.
