Clergy assemblies are held every Thursday morning when leaders from a range of churches within the Loughborough Churches Partnership will come in and lead whole school Collective Worship.
Christian Talk Group
After assembly has finished a group of 12 children from KS2 spend 20 mins talking with visiting ministers.
This is a question and answer session in response to the morning assembly. The children ask questions about the faith and life of the visiting minister as well as exploring their own faith.
The Soar Valley Project and Prayer Space
The Soar Valley Project and Prayer Space visited school to perform 'Christmas Just Got Real'. This involved an assembly where the stories of Mary and the Shepherds were told. Year 3 and 4 then carried out activities in the classroom reflecting on the meaning of Christmas and our hope for the future.
Staff and children attended All Saints with Holy Trinity Church to celebrate the links between the church and our school and to recognise the great church school that is at the heart of the community.
Our Headteacher spoke to the whole congregation about our school and our christian ethos.
The children also sang and delivered prayers during the family service.
Serving at the Parish Church
Two of our children are servers at the Parish Church. Their job as Acolytes is to light and carry the candles.
Loughborough Council of Faiths
Year 6 were visited by a group from the L'boro Council of Faiths. There were representatives from the Muslim, Sikh, Hindu and Christian faiths. Each representative introduced themselves and explained a little about their faith and why it is important to them. The children were then invited to ask questions they wanted - and they did!
It was a very informative afternoon and was a fantastic opportunity for the children to experience people from very different religious backgrounds coming together to show respect, common values and harmony.
EYFS Visit Emmanuel Church
As part of their work about special places, the EYFS class enjoyed a visit to Emmanuel Church.
The class also enjoyed it when Reverend Broadley joined the class for a 'Disco Dough' session at school a couple of weeks earlier.
