Collective Worship

 

We lead collective worship at over 17 schools, some weekly and some monthly. We cover a wide range of topics, including values, festivals and responding to current affairs event where appropriate. We use storytelling, props, children volunteers and challenges to engage the children in what the Bible teaches and the difference it can make to them.

 

Recent topics include:

 

  • Challenges

  • Everyone is special

  • God is with us

  • Turn enemies into friends

  • We look after each other

  • Have time for others 

Lessons

 

As qualified teachers, we are able to plan and teach lessons to a high standard. We are frequently asked by staff for advice in planning their curriculum and have been used in formal staff training. We currently teach RE, PE, PSHE and Values. Recent units of work have included:

 

  • Creation

  • Christian beliefs and lifestyle

  • Bible Beasties

  • Economic wellbeing

  • The Environment

  • Hope and Trust

  • Peace

Clubs

 

We offer extra-curricular clubs that are a combination of games, songs and an opportunity to learn Bible stories in an interactive and creative way.

 

Sports and life skills clubs are also offered.

 
Biblelincs

 

We have a strong team of volunteers that have been trained in presenting these bible workshops. These are interactive sessions, available for the whole primary age range, that are taken into schools and presented to individual classes. Biblelincs workshops are available for either a morning or whole day booking. The themes include;

 

  • What’s so special about the Bible?

 

  • Christmas

 

  • Easter

Curriculum support

 

We have volunteers that are literally “serving“ their local schools by supporting children in their learning in the classroom. These volunteers have undertaken many different tasks and are a real help and support to class teachers.

Governor support

 

Many of our staff, volunteers and trustees are part of governing bodies on different schools. We recognise the importance and privilege of this role and are often asked if we can supply a governor to schools when there is a vacancy.
