Collective Worship & SIAMS

Collective worship – Roots and Fruits


We use Roots and Fruits for our collective worship.


Roots and Fruits provides creative collective worship for primary schools based in Christian values themes over a period of two years. Rooted in Bible teaching, twelve Christian values represent the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life.


Our value for Spring 1 value is Courage.

Courage is… 

Carrying on when things are difficult 

Overcoming fear 

Understanding and facing a challenge 

Risking being our of your comfort zone 

Always believing in God’s promises 

Going for a goal 

Empowered by encouragement 

A prayer for courage 


Father God, 

Help us to be strong and courageous. 

Help us to speak out for others. 

Help us to stand up and be counted. 

Help us to do the right thing, not just the easy thing. 


Courage Song

What is SIAMS and what do they do?


The National Society's Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) framework is used in all Section 48 inspections of Church of England schools and in the denominational inspection of academies. 


The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to four key questions.

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the Religious Education? (in VA schools and academies)
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
