Worship and Christian Life at the School
**Scroll down to see our latest collective worship video - Pentecost**
There is a daily act of worship, which is a highly valued part of each school day, and grace is said before meals and at the end of the day.
Assemblies are led by the Head Teacher, staff, the children or clergy. It is an opportunity for the children to learn about God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit and to understand the teachings of the Bible. In our acts of Worship, Bible teachings are related to the school’s values and to the daily lives of the children.
A lively, creative approach includes drama, dance and art work alongside readings, prayers and music. We use a variety of well-known hymns and modern worship songs, and the children actively participate and enjoy Worship. It is also a time for quiet prayer and reflection on behaviour and on the difference between right and wrong.
Each week we focus on a different Christian value and on Mondays an award is given to the child who has most demonstrated the previous week’s value.
We have strong links with St Peter’s Church and the local community in Hever and Edenbridge. There are four main church services each year, namely Harvest, Christmas, Easter and Leavers Services and we warmly welcome family and friends to these services.
The school celebrates Christmas and Easter through dance, song and drama, telling the story of Jesus in a lively and child-friendly way. For the last few years we have held a reflective ‘Easter Pause Week.’
All these activities help to support and deepen the school community's understanding of what we stand for as a Church school.
