        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 hold an important role in our school.  Made up from a child in each year group throughout the school, their main aims are:

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

        Collective Worship Council

        As a 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, demonstrate values and write prayers. They will also be required to attend meetings with other Collective Worship Councillors to discuss Collective Worship and how they can make them even more exciting. All of our councillors have very important jobs that are specifically linked to our Collective Worship Some of their jobs include;

        • keeping the reflection area tidy
        • writing prayers for Collective Worship
        • demonstrating how to use our school values
        • meeting every term to plan assemblies, discuss how their jobs are going, write prayers and lots more…
        • feeding back the minutes of our meetings
        • looking for children who are using their Bourne Elsea Park School Values
        • helping staff in Collective Worship  with a range of activities and tasks

        Below you will find a range of minutes and newsletters documenting some of the activities carried out by the Collective Worship Council. Our Collective Worship Council keep a record of  reflections from adults and children which are recorded during and following all collective worships and some RE lessons.
