It is a statutory responsibility for schools to provide pupils with an opportunity to take part
in a daily act of worship. As parents, you have the right to withdraw your child from acts of
worship, and from Religious Education lessons, and you should write to the Headteacher if
you wish to do so. We would, however, urge you to come and see for yourselves an act of
worship and take the opportunity to discuss RE teaching before making a decision.
Assemblies, including the daily act of worship, are an important part of the school day, as
the whole school comes together to celebrate and promote our Christian Values.
Parents, family and friends are often invited to join us for special assemblies and services,
some of which are held at St Blaise Church. Our certificate assemblies are held on Fridays at
9am: these celebrate the success and achievements of all pupils and parents are always welcome. The dates for these and other events are in the bi-weekly newsletter, on school
website calendar and are posted on the whiteboard outside the reception area.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the gift of learning here at Saint Blaise,
Help us on the journey of life so that we can do our best,
Give us love in our hearts today,
