ASPIRE BELIEVE CELEBRATE
At St. Andrew’s School we develop aspiration, strength and self-belief by supporting each other and living our values.
Don’t be afraid, I have called you by name, you are mine. I have marked your name on the palms of my hands.
(Isaiah 43:1 and 49:16)
The parable of the lost sheep tells us that God is like the Good Shepherd and he loves and cares for every single one of us.
Worship in School
We believe a daily act of collective worship is an integral and essential part of St Andrew's whole school ethos and curriculum which is central to the life of the school. It provides a focus for the school community and helps to reflect the tone and ethos of the school.
Here are the details of Collective Worship in school.
Mondays and Fridays:
Key Stage Worship led by Head Teacher, Head of Site or visitors, with all staff present, unless on duty just before or after. Reception join KS1 after October half-term.
Mondays - Good Lunchtime Book
Fridays - Good Work Book
Key Stage Singing Practices, including reflection and prayer, taken by HT/HoS.
Tuesdays and Thursdays;
Class Worship or Year Band Worship.
The first and last day of every half term is treated as a Monday/Friday.
Harvest, Christmas, Easter, last day of the Summer Term and Theme Weeks:
Whole school assemblies, in the round, with items from each Year Band.
Caretaker, cleaners, Office staff, gardeners, LOs, volunteers and governors invited.
In the Spring Term, some of the Monday and Friday Key Stage assemblies are taken by classes, so that each class has a turn. The parents of the children in the class taking the assembly are invited.
Tuesdays and Thursdays:
Class assemblies or Year Band assemblies in classrooms. All adults in the room take part, and sign put on the door to prevent interruption. The Lord's Prayer taught and used.
