Collective Worship in School

Collective Worship in school is rooted in Bible teaching and explores a number of Christian values which ‘represent the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life’ (Roots and Fruits, Imaginor 2014).

Each term focuses on one value which links with the season of the Church year. 

Our current value for Collective Worship in school this term is Compassion.

Compassion is about ‘standing in someone else’s shoes’ when they are having a hard time. In other words, trying to understand how they might be feeling and doing our best to try
to help.

We will think about:
• how we can show compassion and kindness to one another;
• recognising when friends at need us to listen and act with compassion;
• read stories from the bible and in the news demonstrating how people, including strangers, show compassion in times of difficulty;
• how nations and individuals can show compassion to other nations at times of disaster or need by sending money or volunteers to help.

Use this home-school support leaflet to help you explore our value of Compassion together as a family:
