Prayers are said throughout the day by both children and staff across the whole school. We encourage the children to know the following prayers from memory:

Sign of the Cross

Hail Mary

Our Father

Morning and Evening Prayers

Prayers before and after meals

Simple responses at Mass

Act of Contrition (KS2)

Eternal Rest (KS2)

Please see our Traditional Prayer Pocket Guide for examples of some traditional Catholic Prayers.

The Diocese have provided us with some lovely prayers for this time of worry at home.

You may like to say these prayers with your families.

School Chaplain

We have a named school Chaplain, Miss Kearns. Our school chaplain leads collective worship and liturgies across the school, liaising closely with our Trust lead lay chaplain, our RE leader and our parish.

Miss Kearns also works very closely with our Mini Chaplains. These children are our chaplaincy team in school and they lead collective worship on a regular basis, they work closely with the prayer leaders in each classroom to help inspire them with ideas for class liturgies and link with the School Parliament looking at Catholic social teaching across the school. They also help to lead activities with our younger children usually in the Prayer Pod, teaching them about the Gospel and key points in the liturgical year, as well as fund raising activities for their selected charities.
