Collective Worship

Woodfield Collective Worship Policy

Principle

Assemblies are an important part of school life. They provide a means of bringing together the whole school community once a week. Key Stage 3 meet on a Monday period 5, Key stage 4 meet on a Tuesday period 5 and 6th form meet on a Thursday.

 

Legal Requirements

We acknowledge the legal requirement stated in the 1988 Education Reform Act 6 (1) and 9 (3), which states the need for each child to attend a daily act of worship either as a whole school, class or group. Parents have the legal right to withdraw their children from the act of worship either partially or wholly. Any parents wishing to do so should contact the Head teacher. Teachers also have the right to withdraw from leading and taking part in worship.
