Collective Worship

Collective Worship

One of the ways in which we reaffirm ourselves as part of Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School community is through meeting together for assemblies and Collective Worship. We provide a daily act of Collective Worship linked to the Anglican faith.  It is our aim to provide pupils with a variety of Christian learning experiences combined with spiritual and reflective opportunities.  The Collective Worship at our school in its various forms will help to develop the spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding of our pupils. The theme each week is linked to either the New or Old Testament and is supported by the weekly visit from the Vicar of Holy Trinity Church, Rev Tim Garrett.


We aim to:


  • provide the opportunity for pupils to worship God
  • consider spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues
  • explore personally held beliefs
  • encourage participation and response (active and/or passive)
  • develop a community spirit including an awareness of the importance of British Values
  • promote a common ethos and shared values
  • reinforce positive attitudes
  • provide worship opportunities which are both collective and educational
  • celebrate the development of talents and personal successes


Our assemblies also provide a rich opportunity to consider personal and social and emotional elements on a whole school basis and through doing so support our expectations of behaviour. Together we celebrate achievements in aspects of school life but also the things the children achieve in their life outside the school.
