As a Church of England School we encourage our children to take an active role in leading Worship. Worship Group lead an act of Worship on a half termly basis and regularly help the Head Teacher, Father Paul and Staff with Bible readings, prayers and drama during Worship. Our year 6 Worship leaders set up hymns, the projector and prepare for our act of Worship each day.
This year our Worship team are Anum, Haleemah, Habibah, Isaac, Fatima, Salma and Naim.
As a School, we visit St. Peter’s Church at least four times each year to take part in important services, which may include, Harvest festival, Christmas, Ash Wednesday and Easter. Our children also visit St. Peter’s Church on a half-termly basis and take part in Holy Communion with the congregation.
Each term we visit St Peter's Church for worship and workshop after school. This is open to all children from Year 1 – year 6 who attend the School and is run by Meena Tomlinson, from St Peter's Sunday School and school staff.
Our Christian values are very important to us and we endeavour to live them out in all that we do.
Our core values are love, respect, service, forgiveness and trust.
Over two years we look at the following core values generosity, compassion, courage, forgiveness, friendship, respect, thankfulness, trust, perseverance, justice, service and truthfulness.
We had a fantastic time on the 11th January 2023, remembering what we learnt last half term, when we studied the Christian Value of Trust. Thank you to Mr Edgar and Worship Group who led our worship today.
On the 14th December 2022, we took a group of children to Simonstone St Peter's. We made a camp fire and winter soup before going on a Nativity Story walk and made some wonderful new friends! The soup was delicious and although we were cold we had a great time!
The behaviour of the children was impeccable and noted by staff from the other school. Our children took part in reading sections of the nativity story, at different stations around the grounds. They read clearly and confidently and we were very proud of them.
On Wednesday 2nd February 2022, two children from Worship Group accompanied Mr Edgar to an RE conference at Foxfield Hotel in Whalley. During the day, the children along with other children from other schools were challenged with a variety of activities all relating to The Easter Story. They also engaged in studying depictions of Anna and Simeon and how they waited for the light of the world. The pupils who attended from our school were a credit to school, to Mr Edgar and themselves. They had an amazing time, particularly enjoying the fancy lunch!! They came back and said they felt 'exuberated' and had lots of fantastic new ideas for worship. They also saw Lisa from the Diocese, which was very exciting as we watch her worship video's on YouTube every week!
