Collective worship in schools should aim to provide the opportunity for pupils to worship God, to consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore their own beliefs; to encourage participation and response, whether through active involvement in the presentation of worship or through listening to and joining in the worship offered; and to develop community spirit, promote a common ethos and shared values, and reinforce positive attitudes.
An Act of Collective Worship will take place every day and may include:
- Consideration of other faiths
- How to live peacefully in a diverse society
- Festivals and cultural holidays
- Discussing current fundraising/charity work
