Opportunities are provided to use the Scriptures to celebrate and gather together so we can demonstrate the glory of God in our lives.
Our Chaplaincy team take a lead in preparing pupil prayer groups which enables pupils to be actively prayerful during the significant dates of the liturgical calendar.
Our beautiful grounds give us the opportunity to reflect on the awe and wonder of Creation and we use them regularly to pray and worship together and to reflect and contemplate.
Each class gathers for Collective Worship each week and the theme is introduced to the children during Assembly on a Friday. We are actively engaged with the Parish in the Sacramental programme and work closely with them to ensure the triangle of home school and Parish support children in their sacramental journey.
We have our weekly Worship assemblies to which families are invited and a range of celebrations through the year which involve both parish and family in worshipping together.
We work with the Parish closely to support our many children with additional needs (especially those with ASD) so that they can access the sacramental programme in a way that is enabling and meaningful for them and their family.
Our Collective Worship Programme provides St Cuthbert's with prayer, liturgy and worship resources for assemblies, classrooms, teachers and parents. The resources, help our school community to grow in faith, love, understanding and compassion.
Collective worship at St Cuthbert's provides the opportunity for pupils to worship God, to consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore their own beliefs. It encourages participation and response, whether through active involvement in the presentation of worship or through listening to and joining in the worship offered. Collective worship develops community spirit, promotes a common ethos and shared values, and reinforces positive attitudes.
