St Anselm's Catholic Primary School

Collective Worship


The school community is involved in regular collective worship.


  • The headteacher and senior staff lead weekly collective worship based on the Gospel readings. The worship focuses on The Word (scripture) and allows time for reflection, prayer and 'going forward' with how we can live out the scripture
  • Classes lead collective worship for other classes, also based around The Word
  • All classes lead class assemblies, performed for parents, during the year. Year 1 lead an assembly about the Rosary, and Reception lead the assembly dedicated to Mary our Mother in May
  • The whole school attends Mass at the beginning and end of each term and on Holy Days of Obligation. Masses are also attended for special occasions such as an Advent Mass, and a Mass to celebrate First Holy Communion
  • Some Masses are celebrated in the school hall
  • Pupil chaplains lead some collective worships, including a whole school reflection on The Stations of the Cross
