Collective Worship

Whole school collective worship takes place every day at Wool Primary.  Every afternoon ends with us gathering together to share a special time of worship.  Spending time each day with a focus on our school values and reflective discussions about Bible texts enables us to gain a clear grounding as we move from school to home.  If guidance requires us to put additional measures in place in response to the coronavirus pandemic, sometimes our collective worship sessions will take place virtually.  


The tables below outline how our collective worship times are organised throughout the year.

Collective Worship

Music in Collective Worship

The families, staff and children of Wool CE Primary have chosen some musical pieces which help us reflect on our school values.  These are used during Collective Worship times.

Picture News

Picture News is a wonderful resource we use to provide an opportunity for children to discuss a topical world issue.  Each week we focus on a special poster which provides a image from the news that week and a big question.  From this stimulus, we consider different points of view, thing deeply about our own opinions and consider what take away ideas we have now as a result of our discussions.  This special collective worship time encourages a sense of courageous advocacy so our children know they are global citizens and that each and everyone of us can make a positive difference not just within our school but also on the rest of the world.
