Collective worship

Collective Worship is an important aspect of Religious Education. Each day the children take part in a Collective Worship, whether it is in small groups in class, in year groups or in department groups. Collective Worship is an ideal opportunity to celebrate. Celebrations are an essential part of life for people of every age and faith. Collective Worships consist of varying elements such as gathering and greeting, listening, reflecting, responding through community praise, especially in song, prayer and of course the children’s own work and ideas.
At Holy Spirit we have whole school Collective Worships to celebrate the new academic year, Harvest Festival, All Saints, Advent, the Shoe-box Appeal and Christmas in the Autumn Term.
In the Spring Term we celebrate Lent, the Good Shepherd Collection for the Nugent Care Society and the joy of Easter Week. 


In the Summer Term we celebrate pupils who have received the Sacraments this year in a special school celebration and a Year 6 leavers’ thanksgiving collective worship. Of course throughout the year we celebrate many Feasts and Holydays of the Catholic Church.
