At St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary school we believe that daily worship and prayer brings everyone together into the presence of God. It draws together our community; school, home and parish and is our loving response, in word and action to God. Each member of staff has a responsibility to share their own faith experience and build positive relationships giving daily witness to the Gospel values.
Worship is an intrinsic part of our school life and is an opportunity to pray, reflect, celebrate and develop a greater understanding of our faith. Collective worship takes place throughout the school on a daily basis in whole school, year group or classroom liturgies. As a school community we regularly celebrate Holy Mass with the Parish throughout the liturgical year. Celebrating the Eucharist enables all members of our Catholic community to deepen their relationship with God.
Worship and prayer make an outstanding impact on pupils’ spiritual development. All pupils respond extremely well to worship and the prayer life of the school. They participate respectfully and with ease and appreciate these experiences as a time of uniting the whole school community. Section 48 Inspection December 2017
