Collective Worship

Term 6 Our Collective Worship theme is ‘Service’

and our Jigsaw theme is ‘Changing Me’


School Closure

During this uncertain time it is all the more important to take time out to be peaceful, calm and reflect on the good things around us. Here are some resources that you could use to share special time with family members.

I will add different resources each week.

Please also see the Jigsaw link for PSHE themed activities and mindfulness time.


How to use these resources:

  • Read through the resource you have chosen to use beforehand
  • Light a candle if you can (grown-ups only)
  • If you have a special object you can put this next to your candle e.g. a cross, a family photo, a vase of flowers
  • You may like to take a moment to reflect on your day that has passed, or the day ahead
  • Share a hope, prayer or thought with each other (you may like to hold hands)
  • Finish with the prayer if you would like to



‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

And the King will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”


Matthew 25: 35-40.  

Our vision is

‘To nurture, educate and inspire’


‘To love our neighbour as ourselves so that we will come to life in all its fullness’.

Our six core values are:

  • friendship
  • honesty
  • respect
  • responsibility
  • perseverance
  • creativity


These values are part of this vision and support the children in understanding what it means to lead a life that follows the core Christian values.


Worship at Hanborough Manor

In our school we want to be able to offer our children the best experience of collective worship we can. We value daily opportunities to come together to:

  • Nurture and nourish
  • Educate and enlighten
  • Inspire and enthuse
  • Celebrate and appreciate
  • Contemplate and wonder
  • Be thankful and pray

Above all collective worship should involve and empower the children – so they can become the best versions of themselves.


Collective worship should promote each child's individual spirituality which we understand as an inner sense of relationship to a higher power that is loving and guiding. The word we give to this higher power might be God, nature, spirit, the universe, the creator, or other words that represent a divine presence. ... A child's spirituality precedes and transcends language, culture, and religion.


Collective Worship is led by our Year 5 liturgy group and either the headteacher, the deputy head or a staff member, and a visiting member of the local Christian clergy each week.
