a leader must also have faith in the people she is to lead
to see good in them and raise them to higher achievement
through praise not condemnation, encouragement not criticism

Collective Worship

2018 - 2019 Collective Worship Plan


We are grateful to colleagues at Rochester DBE and Canterbury DBE for sharing their approach to Collective Worship with us.

The documents, links and resources on this page of the website are here to help schools in their planning of Collective Worship.  They are not intended to be used as an 'off-the-shelf' solution to delivering daily acts of Collective Worship in schools. 

We recommend colleagues take a look at following websites to enhance the Collective Worship in your school:


Roots & Fruits

Jack in the Box

Prayer Spaces in Schools


Barnabus in Schools

Big Start Assemblies


RE Online provide an excellent overview of festivals and significant dates for all faiths which we would recommend you look at as part of your collective worship planning.  CLICK HERE

Approach to Collective Worship - To be read in conjunction with the weekly plans

Information on the liturgical colours for different times of the year are available HERE


We also recommend the Lectionary App which gives you this information along with the Bible reading and associated prayers for each day which can be useful in planning Collective Worship.  This app is free to down load for the App store and Google Play.

Daily Planning Sheet

If you need inspiration for your Collective Worship to support additional weeks in the term then we recommend you look at previous years for inspiration.  You can find these below.
