Pocklington C.E. (VC) Infant School

Collective Worship

 Collective Worship in a Church of England VC schools, reflects the Anglican tradition and is collective (open and invitational to all faiths and none) rather than corporate (as you would have in a church where the gathering of people is of one faith).  

All children and teaching staff take part in daily Collective Worship which is planned around the school's chosen values as well as the main celebrations in the Christian calendar. However there is always flexibility to consider and reflect on current issues. The values are introduced through key Bible stories.  Through Collective Worship our children are beginning to understand the distinctive features of Anglican practice and the centrality of prayer in worship. Our daily Worship plays a very important part of school life and always starts our school day.

 To help us with Collective Worship we welcome visits from OPEN THE BOOK, who explore bible stories with the children and our visits from representatives of All Saints Church.  We end each term with a church service at All Saints that we invite parents and family members to attend.
