As a Church school, Collective Worship is an important time during which we can share in celebrating God's love and learning more about our Christian faith. Through stories, songs and prayer, we aim to help the children to develop their spirituality, as well as becoming more understanding of the beliefs of others.
We believe that the Christian values we promote through collective worship are important for all of our pupils to learn as 'values for life'. We encourage the involvement of all pupils so that their sense of belonging as a member of our school community can be strengthened.
We are fortunate to be supported by our church community in our Collective Worship. Reverend Adrian Judd regularly leads Collective Worship and Gill Fletcher, Foundation Governor also regularly attends school to support our DCWC (Darrington Collective Worship Committee) in leading worship.
There are many opportunities for parents, family and friends to join the school in Collective Worship. These include our monthly Parent Proud Assemblies, during which we present awards and certificates. We also take part in worship in our special whole school and class led services at school and in Church such as Christmas, Harvest, Mothering Sunday and Easter.
