Collective Worship

Collective worship   

Collective worship at Sarum Academy is defined as a time when the whole school, or groups within the school meet together in order to consider and reflect on common concerns, issues and interests. It offers all pupils an opportunity to worship through engaging in relevant, meaningful experiences and provides opportunities for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Collective Worship contributes significantly to the ethos of Sarum Academy and it is our aim that it is a time when the school community can:

  • Share common aims and values
  • Celebrate achievement and special times
  • Explore together the world in which we live
  • Develop a community spirit
  • Worship God

We also intend that Collective Worship contributes to the development of the pupil as a ‘whole’ person by providing opportunities to:

  • Worship that which is considered worthy
  • Consider spiritual and moral issues
  • Explore their own beliefs
  • Develop their own spirituality
  • Reinforce positive attitudes
  • Participate and respond
  • Reflect on what it means to be human
