Collective Worship plays a key part in our school day here at Bridekirk Dovenby.
We have daily acts of worship including whole school collective worship, key stage collective worship and class worship, one of which is Pupil-Led.
Whole School Collective Worship
Twice a week, the whole school meets for a collective worship assembly. Mondays assemblies are also linked to our school-wide Jigsaw PSHE topic and Friday assemblies also involve a celebration of pupil's efforts and achievements with the presentation of our Golden Jumpers.
Key Stage Collective Worship
Once a week, Pupils will have an assembly in their key stages. This ensures that pupils are able to think about topics relative to their age, for example so the older pupils in KS2 can develop a deeper level of religious understanding.
Class Collective Worship
Class worship takes place in their class and is led by their teacher or a guest. We use the picture news scheme (https://www.picture-news.co.uk/) to help children engage with and reflect on current and relevant events in our world.
Pupil-Led worship takes place in class and is something that pupils take huge pride in. In these sessions, the pupils plan and deliver their own collective worship topics ranging from Bible story study to current events.
