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.
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.
