Collective Worship & RE
Our School's Christian values
At Todmorden CE J, I & N School, we believe it is important to develop core values by which to live and which help to develop a moral and spiritual awareness.
The gifts of Trust, Friendship, Honesty and Love are the values that our whole school community want our children to leave with. Whilst these gifts are inclusive of human values, we try to anchor them into the Christian faith by relating them to the Bible through stories and readings.
Collective Worship NEWS
The Mother's Union have been into school to present us with our new worship cloths which they have kindly sewn for us. We are delighted with them! Thank you to Jean, Janet, Karen, Susan and Vilma
We welcomed CICS into our school on Wednesday 5th December for a nativity inspired collective worship. Throughout the week, the Posada characters have visited each classroom.

We have a Whole School Collective Worship on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Each week, there will be a theme and corresponding bible story.
On Mondays, we will have a Collective Worship with Clergy from St. Mary's.
On Wednesdays, classes will take turns in leading the Collective Worship assemblies.
On Thursdays children are given the chance to lead Collective Worship on their own or in small groups.
On Friday, we have a whole school celebration assembly.
During this assembly children are rewarded with 'Stars of the Week' and 'Wow Work' of the week.

What do we do?
Our job is to monitor and observe Collective Worship and have our say on what we would like to see and happen.
We regularly meet up and discuss ideas!
