The pupils and staff at Mordiford CE Primary School take part in active Collective Worship everyday. As a church school our worship is based on the values and teachings of the Church of England. We encourage all pupils to take an active role, but respect those pupils and families within our school community who may follow a different faith. Parents do have the right to withdraw their child/children from Collective Worship for religious reasons if they so wish and the Headteacher or Collective Worship coordinator are happy to discuss this with parents.
Every act of worship is underpinned by the belief of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. At the beginning of the worship the pupils are welcomed and they remember the significance of each of the three items on the focus table and their symbolism of the Trinity. The candle is then lit.
On a daily basis our worship, either in school or in Holy Rood church, takes the form of:
Monday: Whole school worship
Tuesday: Separate EYFS/KS1 and KS2 worship
Wednesday: Whole school worship
Thursday: Worship through song
Friday: Golden Book/Celebration worship
Most are lead by the Headteacher and/or staff. Rev. Moore, our Rector, is also a regular visitor and leads worship both in school and in Holy Rood church.
