Collective Worship

Collective Worship

Rossett School believes that collective worship both supports and strengthens what we aim to do in every aspect of school life. Our caring ethos, and the value which we place on the development of the whole child; spiritually, morally, socially, culturally and intellectually is reflected in our assemblies. We value this special time in the school week for the space it gives children to develop a reflective approach to life and the ability to express their reflections in an appropriate manner.

Through our assemblies (year group and whole school) we aim to provide a caring and supportive environment for children to:

Parents of a student have a right to withdraw their children from collective worship. If a parent asks for their child to be wholly or partly excused from attending collective worship at the school Rossett School will comply unless the request is withdrawn. Any parent who wishes to exercise this right should consult the headteacher through the appropriate Director of Learning.

The Education and Inspection Act 2006 makes provision for pupils in post-16 education to exercise the right to withdraw themselves from the daily act of collective worship, but not from assembly.

The full policy is available on request.
