St Francis Catholic Primary School, A Voluntary Academy

Together we are exploring our special gifts; Together we are growing towards God.


We follow the RE Scheme - The Way the Truth & the Life

Collective Worship


We believe that Collective Worship in our school aims to provide opportunity for all pupils and staff:


  • To contemplate something of the mystery of God
  • To reflect on spiritual and moral issues
  • To explore their own beliefs
  • To respond to and celebrate life
  • To experience a sense of belonging and develop community spirit
  • To develop a common ethos and shared values
  • To enrich religious experience
  • To grow in liturgical understanding and development
  • To reinforce prayers which are part of the Catholic tradition
  • To reinforce positive attitudes
  • To participate fully
  • To take time out ‘to wonder at’, ‘to come to terms with’ and ‘to give worth to.’
