At St Thomas', our worship follows a two-year cycle where children focus on different Christian values. The school's own vision and values is weaved throughout the cycle of wider values. We focus on key Christian figures and heroes in the Bible. It is planned to have a central focus on the teachings of Jesus and the bible so that all pupils feel included and involved, regardless of age, ability, religion or culture. It also, at certain times, reflect the diversity of beliefs within the school, valuing the practices and traditions of others who are a part of the school community, as well as other important times of celebration for wider religious communities. We ensure that pupils are taught about the eucharist at least twice a year. The long term plan, following the Imaginor roots and shoots and the 'Windows, mirrors and doors' approach, is used to support our worship and can be seen below:
