Collective Worship is at the very heart of Great Horwood School and the community it serves. Our daily worship is inclusive for all pupils, staff, parents and visitors whilst recognising and respecting the different beliefs and cultures within our school community. At Great Horwood School we offer a richness and variety of worship from the traditional Anglican with Bible readings, prayers and children's hymns to the more reflective and comtemplative calming style worship.
We particulary enjoyed the virtual Worship from Reverend Mark from St James Church, and some of these can be found on the children's pages for you to watch at home. Our pattern of Worship follows the Church Year and Anglican traditions and the children enjoy planning and leading some of our favourite services such as Advent, Christingle, Candlemass and Pentecost. Since returning to school in September we are delighted that Reverend mark is leading our weekly Key stage worship in St James Church.
The children at Great Horwood School speak with passion and enthusiasm about their worship, remembering favourite stories from the Bible, our Communion services in School and the Stations of the Cross. They are able to say what they enjoy about worship and what difference it has made to them in their daily lives. The children are planning and leading school worship and they take their responsibility for this seriously and reflect on the message they wish to portray.
Our Collective Worship Policy can be found on the Key Information and Policies tab. Details of worship planned for each term can be found below.
