Collective Worship

Worship is an integral part of our school life. We try to ensure that our worship is presented in a way that is relevant to our children and their daily lives. We do our best to ensure that our Worship activities develop spirituality, whilst allowing children and staff of other faiths or who do not hold a religious belief are able to participate in a way they feel comfortable.

 

Worship embeds our school values and ensures that our Christian Ethos is maintained. During our Worship we follow the Canterbury Diocesan Board of Education Collective Worship Plans

Monday - Worship Through Song

Tuesday - Whole School Worship

Wednesday - Church Led Worship

Thursday - Whole School Celebration Worship

Friday - Class Led Worship

Our main Church link is of course with our local Parish Church St Leonard’s in Hythe, but we also have links with other local churches including Cheriton Baptist Church and South Kent Community Church.  They contribute to whole school worship regularly and share our facilities for various community groups and activities.

Andrew Sweeney - Vicar

 

St Leonard’s Church plays a big part in the life of Hythe Bay Church of England Primary School and Children’s Centre.

 

We worship at

Parish Church regularly and church members lead our worship in school every week.

 

Classes visit the Church often and children particularly enjoy the Church Days which are held every term, led by the clergy and church members, allowing children to learn more about their local church and giving them opportunities to explore the teachings of the Bible.

South Kent Community Church lead collective worship within the school each term. Its 15-20 minute programmes are sensitive to multi-cultural issues. The SKCC Schools' Assembly team has been running for many years and has touched the lives of 100’s of children in the local primary schools.

Team members are carefully selected within SKCC, and possession of a current CRB is an automatic requirement.
