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
Our Christian Values for Collective Worship this year (2017 to 2018) :

Term 1: Cooperation

Term 2: Peace

Term 3: Courage

Term 4: Care

Term 5: Wisdom

 Term 6: Hope


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.
