As a voluntary aided Roman Catholic School Religious Education is a fundamental part of our ethos, aims and relationships.
Our strong devotion to our faith runs through the core of all aspects of school life. We believe that links between home, school and parish are crucial in become greater global citizens.
Liturgy and Collective Worship
Our Catholic Faith is central to the day-to-day life of our school and all aspects of the curriculum. All pupils are encouraged to recognise the importance of their faith and they respond to all forms of liturgy and collective worship with respect and reverence.
At St Anne's, we have a rich liturgical life. Together we celebrate our role as part of our school community, parish and wider community, where we understand how much of precious and a joyful opportunity it is to be on our life-long faith journey with others. Weekly ‘Gospel’ assemblies are held for all children focusing on the Gospel from Sunday’s Liturgy in order to help the children understand the key messages and meaning behind it.
Each class has their own celebration of the Mass once a week at St. Anne's church with Father Stephen. The children are involved in the planning and participation of the celebration. In addition, we celebrate our school feast day, holy days of obligation and other significant occasions. The Celebration of the Eucharist and prayer are central in our school.
All acts of worship have a liturgical structure and are thoroughly planned and delivered.
