Collective Worship

Our 3Cs, CARING, CURIOUS and COURAGEOUS, are at the centre of everything we do at St Mary's CofE VA Primary School.

They are the heart of our Collective Worship...

Collective Worship is an important part of our community life at St Mary's when children and staff look forward to sharing that time together.  

To keep everyone safe, in the current situation, Collective Worship happens every day in classrooms.

Monday to Thursday the worships are pre-recorded by Mrs Woolley, members from our church community, Mrs Royle and Mr Walters. On Friday, Collective Worship is led by the class teacher and is a celebration of our learning and talents given to us by God.  

For any children who are learning from home, Collective Worship is shared with them via SEESAW (Years 1 to 6) and Tapestry (Early Years). 


Growing Together is a series of monthly sheets produced by Gloucester Diocese containing engaging ideas that follow the Christian year. Each edition has an overarching question, a story and a choice of activities to enable adults and children to consider the question together.
