Christian Distinctiveness

Christian Distinctiveness

Whitwick St John the Baptist is a proud Church of England school.

Church of England schools are inclusive and look to equally serve those who are of Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.

Our School

Our 'Whole School Vision' is based on the Parable of the Sower from Matthew 13 1-23

 

Christian principles and values underpin all of our work with children.

The school community has decided that we would like our children to grow up and learn in our school to understand the Christian Values of Trust, Kindness, love, Honesty, Tolerance and Respect.

Collective Worship

At Whitwick St John the Baptist CE Primary School, we have a daily act of worship. This is important to all members of our school community as we value the chance to be together and reflect on the values that are part of our distinctiveness as a Church of England school. 

Collective worship offers the opportunity for all pupils and adults to grow spiritually through experiences of prayer, stillness, worship and reflection.

Collective worship takes many forms through music, singing, stories, prayer, reflection and festivals.

Collective Worship takes full account of the Christian Calendar.

Our pattern of collective worship allows a wide range of our school community to take an active role in planning, leading and evaluating collective worship.

Each half term, collective worship explores one of our ‘Christian Values’.

Monday – Head Teacher’s Collective Worship 

Tuesday – House or Year Group Collective Worship – often led by the children

Wednesday –Member of the Church Worship – either the Vicar or Open the Book Team

Thursday – Singing Collective Worship

Friday - Celebration Collective Worship

 

Spirituality

By nature, spirituality is a deeply personal concept.

At Whitwick St John the Baptist, children’s understanding of spirituality develops over time and is where we 'grow the soul'.

It is woven like a thread through our school enriching who we all are through our vision, mission statement, ethos and curriculum.

Through their school life, children will explore three key themes linked to their own spirituality:

- What am I like on the inside?

- Who am I and what matters to me?

- The search for truth.....
