Inspired by the Scriptural commandments of love, at St. Mary’s we encourage children to grow in the spirit of compassion, wisdom and thankfulness. These, and other qualities, are shared thoughout the life of the school. Daily Collective Worship offers particular opportunities for children, and all members of the school community, to reflect upon the importance of these values in our lives.
In Collective Worship, prayers are offered for our school, our local community and the wider world. Through lighting the candle, using images, songs and silence, we celebrate and commemorate key moments of the liturgical year and what has meaning and value for us as a school. We use traditional Christian prayers such as the Lord’s Prayer, our own St Mary’s school creed and prayers written by the children themselves.
