At Selling school an act of worship, which reflects Anglican beliefs, practices and values, is held every day (in accordance with the requirements of our Trust Deed). Every effort is made to ensure the content of the worship is appropriate to the ages and family backgrounds of the children.
Selling school uses the daily act of worship to help children learn the practice of prayer, silence and concentration and the use of symbols and ritual. The daily worship underpins the Christian ethos of Selling School and the value of the individual and Christian community within the school.
The Head of School or one of the class teachers leads the daily act of worship on four days a week. Once a week, there is an opportunity for class worship. The children visit St Mary the Virgin, Selling Parish Church for a short service of collective worship, to celebrate important Christian festivals.
Whilst parents have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship, we hope that they will discuss any concerns with the Head of School before exercising this right.
