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.

 

The value for the Autumn Term 1 is Thankfulness 

and Autumn Term 2 is Trust.

Thankfulness is…

Thinking of good things

Happy memories

All creation praising God

Not taking anything for granted

Keeping focused on the positive

Feeling blessed

Understanding the sacrifices people make for us

Living joyfully

Not complaining

Expressing gratitude to God

Saying thank you to those who help us

Showing gratefulness by our deeds

 

 

Give thanks prayer

 

Dear God,

We know that you love us and always want the best for us.

Help us to look for the things for which we can give thanks.

Amen

TRUST IS….

Taking someone at their word

Relying on someone to support you

Unbreakable promises

Showing that you can be trustworthy

Treasuring good friends

 

Prayer for Trust in God

 

Loving God,  

We thank you for Mary’s trust in you.

Help us to trust you

to lead us and direct us throughout our lives.

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?
