Collective Worship


At Southborough Church of England Primary School our vision and values weave through our

Collective Worship provision throughout the year. 

Each term we will explore one of our six values and how they connect with our collective worship themes. 

We will also reflect on what we can do to act as beacons of light at school, as part of our community and in response to what is happening in the world.

Term 1

This term we will be focusing on our value of



Our Linked Bible text is 

Genesis 37-50

Collective Worship Themes for Each Week in Term 1

We always start our collective worship by lighting a candle

and saying these words:

Jesus the Light of the World is here.

Lord Jesus shine upon us.


This term our value is 'Hope' and we begin our term by exploring this value and what it means to us, our school community and the world around us.  

In Collective Worship we will be focusing on how we can grown and develop together as a school community re-visiting our vision and values and exploring what it means to act out our GIFT vision.
