Collective Worship

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.

 

The value for the Spring Term 1 is Perseverance

and Spring Term 2 is Justice

Perseverance is….

Pressing on

Eager to continue

Running the race

Sticking with things

Encouraging each other to keep going

Valuing the support of others

Eyes fixed on the target

Reaching a goal over time

Aiming to complete the task

Not giving up

Commitment to keep going

Ending up where you want to be

 

 

The Perseverance Prayer

 

Voice 1                    Lord Jesus,

Voice 1                    When I feel worried about facing a new challenge,

Voices 2&3              help me to persevere.

Voice 1                    When the going gets tough,

Voices 2&3              help me to persevere.

Voice 1                    When I feel like giving up,

Voices 2&3              help me to persevere.

All                               Amen

Justice is….

Judging what is right

Understanding what is fair

Standing up for those who need help

Trying to listen to both sides

Informed and wise decisions

Caring enough to take action

Equal opportunities for all

 

 

Justice for everyone prayer

 

Lord Jesus Christ

In your own life on earth, you took care to listen well to people,

especially the people who no one else bothered with.

You were passionate about seeking justice for everyone.

Give us wisdom when we need to make decisions.

Help us not to jump to conclusions but to try to hear both sides,

giving everyone a chance speak.

And when we get it wrong, give us the humility and courage to say sorry.

Amen

Thank You Lord - Don Moen

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?
