At Hutton we have a deep sense of Christian community; this is expressed not only in the way we live out our lives together but in our corporate worshipping life. Students and staff begin each day with an act of collective worship in assembly or in form and special services are held throughout the year to celebrate the Christian festivals.
As a Church of England school, we believe that collective worship is integral to our Christian identity and our sense of belonging to the world wide church.
Collective worship activities are designed to promote the Christian values that are central to the school’s philosophy. Collective worship “challenges [the students] to put Christian Values, such as forgiving and serving others into practice on a daily basis” SIAMS Report 2013.
Every week centres on a theme. All acts of collective worship and reflection are based on this theme. Our Assistant Spirituality Co-ordinator provides resources for staff to use, along with their own thoughts and experiences.
Collective worship is regularly evaluated with students, staff and visitors being asked for their opinions on activities and assemblies. If you have any feedback about aspects of collective worship, please contact the school.
Our full Collective Worship Policy can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
