As a church school, our daily act of collective worship is an important element of what we do at All Saints. Each half term we focus on one of our Christian values: Community, Hope, Joy, Wisdom, Dignity and Peace. Through reflecting on these values, the children are encouraged to make links between the Christian faith and their own lives. We also incorporate aspects of British Values and PSHE (personal, social and health education) to complement our value and enhance our provision.
Worship is led by different members of our community, including Rev Heming, our headteacher, teachers and even the children themselves!
Please find our collective worship plans below:
Prayer is a daily part of school life - we believe in the importance of prayer and a continued dialogue with God. Pupils are asked to spend time writing prayers for the collective worship sessions that they lead; we also have our own school prayer:
Bless our school
That by working together
And playing together
And praying together
We may learn to serve you
And serve one another
In the school grounds we will be developing our spiritual areas, which we hope will be a place for all members of the school community to come and reflect and pray.
Our last SIAMS inspection was carried out in March 2023, where we were graded as a GOOD church school. Please find a copy of the report at the bottom of this page.
What is the purpose of a SIAMS inspection?
SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact that the Christian vision of the church school has on pupils and adults. This will involve looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish. Schools will become effective by means of a variety of strategies, approaches and styles which reflect their local context or church tradition. Inspectors will carefully diagnose how each church school has a positive impact on pupils and adults. They should not apply a preconceived template of what an effective church school should be like.
What is the focus of the SIAMS inspection?
The Evaluation Schedule has one inspection question: How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish? This is explored through seven strands:
One overall grade is awarded reflecting the contribution of these strands to the flourishing of pupils and adults in a church school. In addition, a standalone grade is awarded in all schools for collective worship.

Courageous advocacy is when someone champions a cause which is special and meaningful to them.
At All Saints CE Primary School & Nursery, we have a clear focus on providing our children with opportunities to become courageous advocates, not just locally, but nationally and internationally.
We will all face challenges in our lives and need the support of others to overcome these barriers. At our school we teach our children the importance of helping others when we can no matter who they are, where they come from or what challenges they may face. Through our vision, underpinned by the parable of ‘The Prodigal Son, children encouraged to live out the sense of joy that can be found when others are helped and treated with dignity.
“He was lost and has been found.” Luke 15: 31-32
We support a range of charities in our local area, nationally and globally. The school council work hard for the school to identify worthy causes to support, with the help of staff, parents, governors, and our local church.
