Collective worship is an important part of every school day and is either led by a member of staff or an invited visitor. It is largely Christian in focus, but we ensure it is as inclusive for all of our pupils.
At Harvest, Christmas and Easter we hold special services for families at either St James' Church in Mangotsfield or in the school hall. At different times of the year, our children are asked to sing on Sundays at St James' Church. Reverend Teresa also leads collective worship once per term in school.
Collective worship is linked to our school Lighthouse Values (different ones per term which each have distinctly Christian value attached to them), our PSHE curriculum and British Values.
At the end of each term, we hold our much anticipated 'Cup Assembly'. This is an opportunity for us to celebrate individual members of our school community who have been noticed by their teachers.
Our four cups are:
The Lighthouse Cup - awarded to pupils who have exemplified our Lighthouse Values
The Bignall Cup - awarded to pupils who have shown consistently well mannered behaviour
The Governor Cup - awarded to pupils for significant and sustained academic progress
The KS1/2 Achievement Cup - awarded to pupils for a one off achievement
