Collective Worship Policy

Children's thoughts and reflections on our collective worship.

Worship Council

Our worship council consists of children from every class across KS1 and KS2. Orla, Tommy, Sam, Olivia, Poppy, Harlow, Millie and Kyron.  They meet once every half term to help develop worship across the school.  They also support daily with collective worship.

The worship council support with collective worship.

Worship council meeting was held at the Abbey with Father Phillip


As part of our class worship, children were invited to write their own sendings to be used in collective worship.



Please help use to be kind, polite and thoughtful to others - like Jesus was.

Help us to treat others how we would like to be treated and to be respectful and responsible.



Dear heavenly father, as we leave this space today, we will think about our actions and how they affect others around us. Always remember, that in your darkest moments, God’s light will always be with you as a reminder of peace and harmony.  




Be kind, be respectful, make God proud.



As we leave this space, let God encircle you in Light - Seb.

Let the Lord and the light shine upon you. Amen - Joseph.



Shine bright in your actions and words.




Harvest Festival 2023


As part of our worship at the Christian time of Harvest we collected food for the local community.  Our families of The Nethersole were very generous and donated a significant amount of food to the Tamworth Foodbank.  Thank you to everyone who supported.  We enjoyed a collective worship in church, led by Father Phillip.

Remembrance 2023


The worship council visited Polesworth Abbey to lay a wreath on behalf of all the children and staff at The Nethersole.  Father Phillip taught them all about the war memorial and shared some of the stories from families from the local community who served in either WW1 or WW2.  

Bringing the school community together.

Zephaniah class and Bond class came together for an afternoon to design and make Christmas cards together as part of our value community.  The cards were to give to the resident of Linden Lodge, who were invited to watch reception's nativity play.  All the children really enjoyed their afternoon and loved spreading kindness to the local community.

Christmas 2023

Christmas 2023 was memorable at The Nethersole.   Reception visited the Abbey to take part in the baby Jesus ceremony.  Reception class were very busy, they then performed their nativity to their families and members of the local community - residents from Linden Lodge.  The whole school came together and gave three amazing performances of Children around the World.  They learnt about how different children celebrate Christmas around the world whilst not forgetting the true meaning of Christmas.  We then shared a collective worship at the Abbey with Father Phillip where Mrs Goode had to build a stable!

Reception went to Polesworth Abbey to take part in the Baby Jesus event.

I pray for my teachers and parents. Give them the wisdom to show me how to live my life in the right way.

I pray for the leaders of the world. Help them to make the right decisions so that they can use their power to make the world a better place.

Loose change challenge for Dordon Angels


In February 2024 we supported a local charity - Dordon Angels.  Each class collected as much loose change as they could in a 2 week period.  We then created a coin trail to see how far long we could make it - it nearly went 2 times around the playground - a whopping 192 metres.  In total we raised £395.13.  The children loved the challenge,, enjoyed giving back to a local charity and said it was the best day ever making the coin trail.
