Collective Worship

Collective Worship

At Elvetham Heath Primary School we aim for collective worship to be an integral part of the curriculum, reflecting the ethos of the school and making cross-curricular links. Our collective worship is organised around themes which are based on values and is broadly Christian character but non-denominational in approach. The themes explored aim to contribute to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural education. The theme for this academic year is, ‘Peace and Tolerance: Co-operating and working together for the benefit of all and helping others in the wider world’.

An assembly is held each day in one of the two school halls. The whole school meets for worship at least once a term at the Church on the Heath. These are in celebration of Harvest, Christmas and Easter. The Church provides a venue which allows the whole school to join together as well as encouraging a sense of awe and wonder and a particularly special time for reflection.

Parents have a legal right to withdraw their children from acts of worship; if any parent wishes to discuss this and the alternative arrangements that will be made for a child, please contact the Headteacher.
