Collective Worship

Collective Worship at Scargill

Collective worship takes place daily at Scargill and is consistent with the principles and practices of the Church of England and will, therefore, be broadly Christian in character. Collective worship encourages pupils to consider fundamental questions about the purpose of being and about moral and ethical stances.

It allows us to learn and celebrate values we hold to be important and brings children together, enabling them to experience the security of belonging to a community with an identity of its own.



Any parent has the right to request the withdrawal of his or her child from school worship and religious education, by making such a request in writing to the head of school.

Collective Worship Committee

Our Collective Worship Committee members work hard during the year to find new ways in which to make collective worship meaningful and interesting to those taking part. They lead worship during the year and ensure worship runs smoothly by being music and equipment monitors. Members also suggest ways in which our worships and be improved and evaluate worships regularly. 

St Wilfrid's Church
Whilst Collective Worship is mainly held in school, groups of children from the school regularly visit St. Wilfrid’s, our local parish church, for reflective learning, Easter and Christmas workshops and to celebrate the major festivals of the church year such as Harvest, Easter, and Christmas.
There is a special service in the autumn term when Year 5 pupils are presented with their own bible, and an annual school leavers’ service is held on the last day of the summer term. We have a Collective Worship committee who are involved in planning and delivering Collective Worship to the rest of the school.
