Collective Worship Committee

Welcome from the Reverend Alison Askew

Kirby Hill School is a Church of England school, and so Christian values form the bedrock which underpins the school ethos, something which is much valued by parents.

There are strong links between church and school. The church governors play an important role in helping to shape the school and supporting school events. The Worship Group lead Collective Worship several times a term.

The children all attend a service in church at least once a term, enjoying the opportunity to sing, read their prayers and written work. The children also visit the church for lessons relating to various aspects of the curriculum.

More recently the church and school have worked together on the highly enjoyable Messy Church events, which are now being held several times a year. ‘Teamstar: Take 2’ (the school singing group) came to the church Carol Service in December and delighted us all with their music.  Some of the older children have the opportunity to attend a service in the Cathedral for church schools once a year, and at the end of the summer term our leavers attend the Leavers’ Service, also at the Cathedral.

We continue to build on the relationship between church and school, and I welcome any suggestions you may have of ways in which we can work together for the good of our young people.

Our School Prayer

Bless our school at Kirby Hill
Bless all the children and adults who work in it
Help us to do our best
To be kind and thoughtful to one another
Cheerful and smiling every day

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Collective Worship Committee

Adult leader – Mrs Natasha Cockerill

The Collective Worship Committee is a group of Year 5/6 pupils who help to lead Collective Worship for the whole school. They hold open the doors for the whole school to enter the hall, light the candle, keep the Collective Worship display up to date and help to lead the school prayer.  The committee also leads Collective Worship for the whole school every Thursday.

Their role may also include helping to lead charity fund-raising events and helping the visiting Worship Group from the local Church.

The Collective Worship Committee evaluates Collective Worship each week and are the voice of the pupils with regards to worship time at Kirby Hill CE Primary School.
