Collective Worship, RE and SIAMS

Collective Worship, RE and SIAMS


Our School’s Christian Vision

To inspire a love of learning and discover how to make a difference in the world.

“With God, all things are possible.” Matthew 9 v26


As a school we are a kind, caring community built on the Christian foundations of love and respect.


We are a school where:

Everyone matters and all are equal.

We all have a clear sense of belonging.

Individuality is celebrated.

Everyone is proud of themselves and proud of the school.


"Let every detail in your lives - words, actions, whatever - be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way."   Colossians 3:17


Because we are all special in God’s eyes.


About Our School  


In 2019, SIAMS judged us to be a “good” church school.  Our SIAMS report says;


  1. The strong and passionate leadership has created a vibrant, inclusive Christian community in which everyone flourishes.
  2. The clear vision reflects the local community, motivates and inspires everyone in the school family. This has a profound impact on pupil’s wellbeing.
  3. Pupils are passionate about religious education (RE). The subject is instrumental in helping pupils to live well together and inspires a sense of self belief.
  4. Collective worship is joyful and uplifting and pupils are involved with many aspects of worship.

    RWV Curriculum Overview

    Collective Worship


    We have a Collective Worship everyday where we spend time together as a school family.  Collective Worship is led by school staff and our local vicar leads worship on a regular basis.  We also welcome visitors to Collective Worship.

    In Collective Worship we aim to develop a sense of:

    • awe, wonder and mystery
    • interdependence with the natural world
    • pattern, sequence and order
    • self worth and value of others

    and an awareness:

    • that life involves choices of belief, attitude, behaviour and relationships
    • that there are issues of meaning, purpose and value in life.

    All collective worships are based on the principles that they should be:

    • inclusive
    • educational
    • spiritual
    • contribute to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of children
    • special times where the children can feel secure and relaxed and share with others to foster a feeling of community.
