Collective Worship

We are a Church of England Voluntary Aided School and Collective Worship at Chilton Foliat Primary School plays a central role in our life and work.

It offers important opportunities to strengthen our sense of community, belonging and inclusiveness and to reinforce the love, care and respect we have for each other.

We are proud of the very strong links we have with St. Mary’s Church and the Diocese of Salisbury. Working together we make a significant contribution to the religious, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the pupils.

Collective Worship/assemblies are led by staff and local clergy to the school. Our Collective Worships are mainly of a broadly Christian character in accordance with the 1988 Education Reform Act and children are encouraged to actively participate through the ‘Values for Life’ resource. These values are woven into all aspects of school life.

As well as welcoming the Church into our school, we like to take the children to St. Mary’s Church to celebrate Harvest Festival, Christmas, Easter and our School Leaver’s Service at the close of the academic year.
