R.C Primary School

Liturgical Year

As an integral part of our Catholic ethos, all pupils are made aware throughout the school year, of the changes and celebrations relating to the Church's Liturgical Year. These events are highlighted in our sacred space in our assembly hall and in every classroom’s personal sacred space. The children are aware of the liturgical changes with the changing colours of our prayer table cloths and displays.
 

Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to hold masses and assemblies as a school. However, we continue to ensure the children take part in Collective Worship, with members of the Senior Leadership Team leading assemblies with classes, each week.

To further complement the work of the class teacher in the delivery of the ‘Come and See ' programme from nursery to Year 6, the children enjoy weekly school assemblies:

 

EYFS & KS1 assembly - Monday 2.15pm

KS2 assembly - Monday 1.30pm

EYFS & KS1 celebration assembly - Friday 9.15am

KS2 celebration assembly - Friday 1.30pm

 

​These assemblies are often pupil led and are further complemented by the pupils' prayer service to which parents, families, friends, governors and our parish priest are invited to attend. These are usually as follows:


Our  Parish Priest makes frequent visits to the classes in preparation for the sacraments of First Forgiveness and First Communion in Year 3.


The older pupils plan and participate in their own class prayer services and collective worship sessions. Each KS2 class has a class mass each half term which children, parents, staff and parishioners come together in Church to worship together in a pupil-led service.


Class masses are every Wednesday at our Parish Church - St Kentigern's.
