Liturgical Prayer provides an important focus for the prayer life of the school and an opportunity for celebration and reflection. Mass is celebrated frequently, either as a whole school or as an individual class. We welcome parents to take part in our school Masses and non-Eucharistic celebrations.
Liturgical Prayer is central to the daily life of our school. We aim to provide opportunities for children’s spiritual growth and development through participation in all forms of prayer: formal, informal, spontaneous, private, shared, petitionary and meditative.
Pupils are actively involved in planning and leading prayer, both in class groups and whole school settings. Shared acts of worship take place in an atmosphere of reflection and stillness, where we encourage each other to listen to God speaking to us and to respond.
Gathering together in Liturgical Prayer is central to our school mission. However, parent and carers do reserve the right to withdraw his or her child from any act of Liturgical Prayer and should put his or her wishes in writing to Mrs Francesca Heslop, Headteacher.
- Daily Prayers are shared in every class (prayers are suitable for each year group).
- Each class celebrates Liturgical Prayer according to the Liturgical Prayer timetable.
- Whole School Prayer takes place throughout the year (Eg, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Holy Week, Advent, etc.) to celebrate the liturgical calendar.
- Child led Liturgical prayer is held weekly in each class.
- Our parish priest is actively involved in our school and leads whole school and class masses.
