Church School Distinctiveness

We enjoy a daily act of collective worship, in many different ways, sometimes as a whole school or key stage or simply with our own class.


We particularly enjoy having visitors to lead our worship such as  the Open the Book team. Here is examples of our collective worship plans.

At start of each collective worship we say our lighting the candle prayer.


Dear Father,

We light this candle as a symbol of 

Your love shining down on us.


As we see the light reflected in

each other's faces,


So may we remember to carry

this love into our 

everyday lives in all our

dealings with others.



We asked the children what they thought about Collective Worship at our school. Their responses will help inform us about the next steps we take as a school to further develop this key area of school life.

We asked our families to evaluate our Church School. Their responses have been evaluated and will form part of the next steps we take in developing our Church School further.

We share our Church School Values in school and at home. The links below will take you to information, stories and activities to explore the values together at home.


Our Church School Values

Our School Prayer


Dear Lord,

This is our school.

Let peace dwell here.

Let the room be full of contentment,

And let love abide here.

Love for one another,

Love for mankind,

Love of life itself

And love of God.

And let us remember that

As many hands build a house,

So many hearts make a school.



Lincoln Cathedral - Diocese Carol Service

The 4/5 children had a fantastic day at Lincoln cathedral for the Diocese of Lincoln church school carol service. Our children were amazing and loved all the singing and worked hard. 

Harvest Festival

We celebrated our Harvest Festival together with a service in All Saints Church. We also collected food items which have been donated to the Sleaford Larder. 


Open the Book Collective Worship





Easter Church Service

Thank you to the Open the Book team who regularly come into school to lead super collective worships.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Easter Church services on Tuesday 27 March 2018.

Our Collective Worship Council led our Harvest Church service on Tuesday 3 October.

It was a service which reminded us to be thankful for what we have, and think about those less fortunate than us.
