Collective Worship

“We are a Church of England Voluntary Aided School and Collective Worship at St Michael’s plays a central role in our life and work. It offers important opportunities to strengthen our sense of community, belonging and inclusiveness and to reinforce the respect and care we have for each other.”

We are proud of the very strong links we have with the Whitton Benefice. Working together we make a significant contribution to the religious, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of those present.

Collective Worships are led by the children, staff, local Clergy and parishioners.   As well as welcoming the Church to our school, we like to take the children to St Michael’s Church to celebrate Harvest Festival, Christmas, Easter and our School Leaver’s Service at the close of each academic year.

Mrs Arkwright introduces the new value each term to our school community which the children then explore in their classrooms.  This may be through role play, discussions, art or prayer writing.


Religious Education is an important component of our children’s school work. Programmes of work refer frequently to other religions particularly when tackling the lives of people from other cultures. Moral and social education is an inherent part of daily school life.
