Collective Worship

Long Term Collective Worship Plan – updated March 2021

Our collective worship plays a key role in daily work at Deal Parochial School. It provides us with valuable opportunity to reaffirm our Christian values and ethos. It is a special time in the school day to come together to strengthen our sense of community, belonging and inclusiveness and to reinforce the respect and care we have for each other. Through collective worship we make a contribution to the religious, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of those present,

The daily act of worship is held is led by the Headteacher, teachers the vicars or curate of our Foundation churches, visiting churches and the children themselves. At the moment, due to Covid restrictions, we can’t meet as a Community, however we do meet via TEAMS to worship together in our classes. Each term a Class hosts the collective worship and leads us in bible study, prayer and song.

Throughout the year we hold a Harvest, Christmas, Easter, Pentecost and Leaver’s Service in one of our Foundation Churches. These services are led by the children with input from the local church.  Parents are always very welcome to join us for these important events in the school year.
