RE and Collective Worship Policies

Picture 1


At St Cuthbert's we recognise the power of prayer and the comfort it brings. It is a time of quiet contemplation, a time to ask for forgiveness, a time of peace and a time to reflect and be thankful. We respect the diversity in our school community. Each week our children and staff are invited to write prayers inspired by the worship value/message or simply to sit and think about the theme. These prayers are displayed on our prayer tree which stands in our entrance area so that members of our school community and visitors can read them. Some of these prayers are read as part of worship.

Please let us know if you would like us to pray for someone or something in particular by submitting an e-mail using the contact form below.

Worship Themes and resources Autumn 2017

The themes and focus for these assemblies have been taken from the key points in the Church of England’s ‘Vision for Education’ document.

Educating for Hope and Aspiration

In life, how we learn to approach the future is crucial. Good schools open up horizons of hope and aspiration, and guide pupils into ways of fulfilling them. They also cope wisely with things and people going wrong. Bad experiences and behaviour, wrongdoing and evil need not have the last word. There are resources for dignity and respect; repentance, forgiveness, truth and reconciliation are possible; and meaning, trust, generosity, compassion and hope are more fundamental than meaninglessness, suspicion, selfishness, hardheartedness and despair.


Monday 6th November REMEMBRANCE

Dignity and respect can come in the form of remembering those who gave everything so that we might have freedom.

1) Remembering

2) Never Forget

3) Assembly 18 - Helping People

11th Armistice Day

Monday 13th November PEACE

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

1) Peace & its symbols

2) Sport & Peace

3) Peace

4) Peace

5) Peace Babies

6) Building Peace

Monday 20th November Reconciliation

Reconciling is a crucial element of wisely negotiating the multi-layered and diverse reality of the society in which we live. It is usually not too difficult to honour the dignity of those who seem to be ‘one of us’, similar to ourselves, ‘normal’ by our own measure. The challenge is how we treat those who seem alien, abnormal, disturbingly or dangerously different.

1) recommended for KS3 but can easily be adapted. Particularly poignant as Coventry Cathedral is located in the Midlands and to this day is one of the world’s oldest religious-based centres for reconciliation, reflecting the commitment made by Provost Howard in 1940 to work with others “to build a kinder, more Christ-child-like world.”

2) Peace & Reconciliation

3) Forgiveness

4) Christ the King

5) Forgiveness

12th Prophet’s Birthday (Islam)


26th November Christ the king

Monday, 27th November Wisdom

  • The Bible is passionate about both wisdom-seeking and the importance of teaching and learning.
  • Wisdom isn't about what you know (this is knowledge/information) but about what you do with what you know - the application of your knowledge.

The Wisdom Necklace 2) Wisdom 3) Wisdom 4) Wisdom of Solomon
