Bourne Elsea Park Church Of England Primary Academy

Striving For Excellence, Caring For All In a Loving And Caring Christian Environment.

        Collective Worship

        Collective Worship takes place daily, in many forms, and contributes significantly towards our children’s spiritual development. We understand that time for reflection during Collective Worship, and at other times during the day, is an essential part of developing our children’s spiritual, moral, social, and cultural (SMSC) awareness. Our Collective Worship Council fulfills an important role in our school.  The Council includes one child from each year group and their main aims are:

        • To play an active role in planning, leading and evaluating Collective Worship.
        • To support the development of Bourne Elsea Park as a Church School.

        Collective Worship Council

        When taking on the role of Collective Worship Councillor, the children may be required to; assist in planning Collective Worships, take part in church services, teach other children in their class about Christian topics, create drama sketches of Bible stories and demonstrate Christian values and write extempore prayers. They will also be required to attend meetings with other Collective Worship Councillors to discuss Collective Worships and how these sessions can be made even more exciting and engaging.

        Additional jobs may include:

        • keeping the reflection area tidy
        • writing specific prayers for Collective Worship
        • demonstrating how to live-out our school values
        • feeding back the minutes of Collective Worship Council meetings
        • looking for children who are living-out their Bourne Elsea Park Primary Academy Christian Values
        • helping staff plan and deliver Collective Worships with a range of activities and tasks

        Below you will find links to minutes and newsletters documenting some of the activities carried out by the Collective Worship Council. Our Collective Worship Council also keeps an ongoing record of reflections from adults and children following our Collective Worships and some RE lessons.

         Collective Worships During Lockdown:

        Even though we were not able to be together in the summer of 2020, we knew that God was always with us.  We hope you found comfort in and enjoyed these Collective Worships.

        During Collective Worship, we ask those children and staff who are happy to share their thoughts, feelings and responses to a Reflection Question to record their ideas on our Padlets. These Reflection Questions are a fantastic way for all members of the school community to share their ideas and feelings. In fact, sharing our responses in this way often creates opportunities for classes to; discuss pertinent issues, recap their learning, air their concerns and voice opinions that there wouldn’t normally be time for. The Padlet for each term can be seen below:
