Collective Worship & Developing Spirituality
At Finmere school, we want to ensure that all children learn and worship in an inclusive, Christian and safe environment. We work hard at promoting Christian values including our own values of kindness, honesty and perseverance. Collective Worship also enables our whole school vision ‘One family rooted in love, growing and enabling all to flourish’ to be at the core of Finmere’s ethos.
The children participate in a daily Act of Worship, including; whole school or class. Every Friday, the children have celebration worship where the children can be publicly recognised for all their achievements both in and outside of school.
We have close links with our local church, with the Reverend being a close friend and governor of our school. Reverend Alice leads collective worship once a week. Our aims for Collective Worship at Finmere are to promote Christian values by using images, music and Bible stories. We aim to promote a growing awareness of God through prayer, visits to the local church and daily acts of worship. Reverend Alice is implementing Space Makers within our worship.
There is a shared vision that children will feel a part of a faith and community. Children are encouraged to develop their spiritual awareness and moral compass.
