Collective Worship


At Wheatley Primary there is a daily act of collective worship which anchors our school community and provides an important opportunity for spiritual and moral development for pupils and staff. Across the week this can be whole school, key stage or class based. We draw on a range of resources to plan worship which is invitational, inclusive and inspiring. Our Y6 Junior Worship Leaders are involved in planning and delivering both worship and the whole school prayer space.


St Mary the Virgin in Wheatley are currently seeking to appoint a new vicar following Reverend Nigel's retirement. During this period we are fortunate that Alexandra Hewitt, Lay Minister and Director of Music for St Marys, is visiting to lead Collective Worship for both KS1 and KS2 weekly. Once the current refurbishment is complete we will once again visit St Mary's Church for Harvest and Easter services as well as other times.

Each term we explore one of our values through Bible stories and other key figures from today’s world and the past. We think about what it means to us and how it influences the way we think, feel and behave.

This term we are focusing on being CONFIDENT

  • We keep an open mind and ask good questions
  • We are proud to be ourselves



Our Junior Worships leaders are once again sharing lots of inspirational words to help you tackle challenges and be the best you can be. We hope you enjoy finding them and thinking about how they apply to your life. 

As with other aspects of school life we review and evaluate collective worship to identify strengths and areas for improvement. This includes an annual survey for pupils and staff.
