Collective Worship is a valued, integral part of daily school life for all pupils at Rosedale C of E Infant School.
The main aim of Collective Worship here at Rosedale C of E Infant School is for it to be meaningful and relevant for all pupils and staff, whatever their faith background, set within the Anglican Christian tradition of the school.
Through this and in the general ethos of the school we seek to promote our school motto:
"Every day, in every way, everyone matters."
It is a time where we come together to share our love of God and celebrate our achievements together. The worship of the school is based on promoting our Christian Values which permeate the ethos of the school. As such, the contributions of pupils, staff, church clergy and others visitors are valued highly.
Aims of Collective Worship and Assembly
At our school we understand that Collective Worship and Assembly are not the same thing but it is usual for an act of Collective Worship to take place during an assembly, either as a small part of the assembly or its entirety.
Through our worship at Rosedale C of E Infant School we:
An assembly is a gathering of part or all of the school and evokes a sense of belonging. It develops a sense of community and shared values, enhancing the ethos of the school.
Through our assemblies at Rosedale C of E Infant School we:
Monday - Christian Value for the term - this term's Christian Value focus is 'Love'.
Tuesday - Christian calendar or core concepts. The 'Christian Value Crew' meet with Mrs Sheldon once every half term to plan our own worship and the children help Mrs Sheldon to deliver this with the children.
Wednesday - Class Based Worship - class teachers 'dig deeper' following on from Tuesday's act of worship. We discuss this further and allows more of an opportunity for children to discuss this on a more personal level. Each week either Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 use the Worship Centre for this.
Thursday - Hymn Practice
Friday - Celebrate and Smile
Other Daily Acts
