Collective worship is a key part of the school day at Sproatley. We hold a whole school collective worship 4 times a week and a class collective worship once a week. During our worships the children are introduced to bible stories and morals through the Roots and Fruits book. We also have weekly themes for our music and hymn choices and the worship team developed our school prayer linked to our Christian values:
In friendship, compassion and trust
May your spirit be our guard.
In Jesus' name, light our way
Holy trinity every this day
Be at our side.
Open the Book Assemblies
Open the Book (OtB) is a project which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories, from a team of Christians from local churches, who present the stories during assemblies/acts of Collective Worship. Our OtB team is made up of members of the community who are part of St Swithin's church. We have wonderful performances regularly throughout the school year where the children play a part in the performances too!
At Sproatley we have a very enthusiastic worship team. Elected each term, the worship team is responsible for choosing the topics and hymns for the collective worships during that term. The team meets regularly with Mrs Pepper to make these important decisions and they have also helped out during our Open the Book assemblies.
Our team captains play a pivotal role in the collective worships at school. They are responsible for helping get the worship setup for the member of staff delivering it, controlling the music that is played during hymns and play a very active role in our Friday celebration assemblies.
