Worship in Our School
Our school is a Church of England, VC School, with close links to All Saints Parish Church in Old Glossop, and under the Diocese of Derby.
We celebrate all faiths and all belief systems in our school, whilst promoting our own distinctive Christian ethos. Children take part in daily collective worship, led by either senior leaders, teachers, other children, visitors, or our local priest, Father David.
We have a yearly plan for collective worship (see below) and each half term, we follow a theme intended to develop children's spirituality. These themes are Peace, Hope, Love, Forgiveness, Justice, Pride & Joy. We try to bring a varied but holistic approach to these themes, sharing with children not only religious stories/messages, but music, literature, art, drama, or learning about inspirational people who embody the theme.
We have a very close relationship to our local church and hold services there for harvest, Christmas, Easter and other significant events, such as our Year 6 leavers.
