Collective Worship

The Vision of St John’s CE Primary School, Rishworth

Matthew 5:16 (NRSV)

“Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father in heaven.”

Following Matthew 5:16, people shine through success, honesty, independence, neighbourliness and enjoyment. We believe children learn best when they’re happy and have the confidence to respond to challenges, within a caring Christian environment where adults lead by example. We value the partnership with families and the community whilst striving to give our best.

In light of the continuing school and church closures, we have devised a worship at home pack for all members of the St John’s CE Primary School community. As a Church of England school, we are called to support and develop the school community through collective worship and invite you to use this resource with your children.
