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 2

This term we will be focusing on our value of


Our Linked Bible text is the Christmas story

Luke 2

Collective Worship Themes for Each Week in Term 2

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.


During the first half of this term, we will be exploring some of the proverbs and wise sayings of Solomon taken from the book of Proverbs. It is called ‘taking it back to the playground’ because we will be looking at how these ancient wise sayings could be taken ‘back to the playground’, lived out every day and still be relevant to us now. There will also be opportunities for us to consider how our behaviour and attitude could alter if we reflected and pondered on these ‘pearls of wisdom’.
