I can do everything through Him who gives me strength' (Philippians 4:13)
As a Church of England School, worship is part of our daily lives. The staff and children of all ages take part in leading different areas of worship.
Our weekly worship timetable:
We use a mixture of worship resources including plans from Lichfield Diocese, bible stories linked to our values and Picture News to highlight current issues and courageous advocacy in real time for the children. Within Picture News Worship, we also look at the links to British Values and reflect on 'The Big Question' for the week.
Worship Long Term Plan
Our School Christian Values
Here is a message from our Worship Council:
Welcome all, to the worship council page about what happens in worship. Worship council consists of two people from each year group and we meet every week to discuss how we can improve worships and increase pupil voice. We would like to give out questionnaires to see what children like and dislike about worship. Once every half term, our council will take lead in our worships and they have control over songs, prayers and stories. Our worships will reflect on the current school value. Worship is a brilliant part of the day because it allows the whole school to come together, sing hymns, hear bible stories and celebrate our learning. We hope you enjoyed reading all about our fantastic worship council! Here are a few pictures to show you.
Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools
All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the National Society's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. The framework sets out the expectations for the conduct of the Statutory Inspection of Anglican, Methodist and ecumenical Schools under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005 and provides a process for evaluating the extent to which church schools are "distinctively and recognisably Christian institutions".
SIAMS inspection focuses on the effect that the Christian ethos of the church school has on the children and young people who attend it. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles, which reflect their particular local context or church tradition in order to be distinctive and effective. Inspectors will, therefore, not be looking to apply a preconceived template of what a church school should be like.
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?
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.
