A daily act of collective worship, as well as being a legal requirement, offers a special and important time in the school day in which pupils and staff can experience and celebrate the combination of qualities and values that create the ethos of their school. It makes an important contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and also offers opportunities to develop an appreciation of shared human values whilst providing a vehicle through which pupils can understand and respond to local and global events.The Interfaith Education Team can support schools in meeting the statutory requirement to deliver a daily act of collective worship by:Share in or lead Collective Worship Celebrate a festivalLead ‘Inclusive’ worshipLead Separate Faith WorshipAdvise and support school staff leading worshipReady-to-deliver plans for Muslim Worship for use by your staffThe team is experienced in planning and delivering collective worship to all group sizes from a whole school to a small group.
