In our school, whatever the challenge,

we aim high with God in our hearts

RE and Collective worship

Welcome to St Stephen's R.E. and Collective Worship Page!
 

Here you will find information regarding what we teach and how we teach RE in our School.
 
Although RE is taught as a discrete subject, being a Church of England school, we embrace and celebrate God's word and values in everything we do.  At St Stephen's, we wholeheartedly believe that our chosen values should be lived and breathed in order to become the caring citizens that God wants us to be.   
 
Our children play a full role in ensuring that our aims and values are understood by all and are demonstrated in every aspect of their school lives.  Worship Wardens help us to plan for our Collective Worship, and every class is responsible for preparing and performing their own Class Worship each week.  Children have the opportunity to share their prayers with the rest of the school during Collective Worship and these always demonstrate their understanding of, and sensitivity towards, current issues and themes.

 

All our year groups take responsibility for leading a special Worship time over the year three of which are very important in the Christian calendar are held in St.Stephen's church: Harvest; Christingle and Easter. The others: Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Eid and Remembrance Day are held in school. Parents are warmly invited to attend these special acts of Worship.

 
We are proud of the way in which the Christian teachings and Muslim faith can work in harmony, with everyone showing tolerance, acceptance and respect for our school family.  Our pupils are proud to come to St. Stephens where they can learn about the Christian faith, nurture their own faith and develop their spirituality within a rich and caring community.

Our Worship Wardens play an important role in supporting the leaders of daily Worship. They apply for this position and are responsible for planning the half termly Worship with the Headteacher throughout the year.
