At Burford Primary School we believe that daily Collective Worship supports and strengthen all aspects of school life and our Collective Worship Policy provides additional information (see link below). We value this special time in the school day, for the space it provides our children, in order to develop a reflective approach to life, and the ability to express their thoughts. Additionally, it is a time when children and staff come together to share beliefs and values relating to the day to day life of school.
On Wednesdays, our Collective Worship sessions are organized by Burford Church, whereby Bible Stories are read and brought to life through drama, mime, costume and sound effects, with the children also getting involved!
We hold a celebration assembly, fortnightly, known as ‘Gold Book Assembly’ – specific achievements of pupils from each class are shared and certificates presented. The ‘Golden Postbox’ is also opened whereby we celebrate the achievements of our children beyond school, with certificates presented. A termly Achiever Award presentation takes place for achievements and exemplary behaviour – two children per class. Parents and relatives are invited to attend these special celebratory assemblies.
