Collective Worship and Liturgies

Class Worship
 
At St. Catherine's we follow the Liturgical Calendar for our weekly liturgies.
We use the Collective Worship Programme from Ten:Ten for our prayers and reflections throughout the week.
This starts with an assembly led by the Headteacher at the beginning of the week and there are related prayers that give the children the opportunity to grow closer to God that follow for the rest of the week.
