Collective worship in all Church schools must be in accordance with the tenets and practices of the Church of England. Wilberfoss has a planned programme for Collective Acts of Worship based around values, all of which are explored from a Christian viewpoint, and sometimes from the perspective of another faith. Collective Acts of Worship can be whole-school, Key Stage or class based, and may be led by the head teacher, staff members, our school vicar Revd Aysha, or visitors including other members of the church community. Our 'Assembly Gang' pupils also plan, organise and lead class worship themselves, so that staff can take a more reflective part in the worship themselves!
Parents and carers do have the right to withdraw their child from acts of worship, and should this be the case, they should make an appointment with the headteacher to discuss alternative arrangements.
We encourage our children to share with their family and friends what they have been learning about in Collective Worship, but also in a bit more detail the core Christian values.
Here are some homes/school values worksheets for you to complete at home - we would love to hear about what you have discussed at home.
