Primary School

Collective Worship

Our Collective Worship Leader is: Mrs Coultrip


Collective Worship is central to the life of our school. We meet everyday as a whole school community to talk and reflect on the teachings of the Bible and the life of Jesus. Collective Worship is planned around key themes and each theme is explored across a term. Worship is usually led by Mrs Rowley-Jones, however once a week Reverend Simon will lead an act of worship for us. The children lead worship every Thursday linked to the whole school theme. For more information about how Collective Worship works at St Mary of Charity, please read our Collective Worship Policy.

Our School Christian Vision 



“Feed my lambs….take care of my sheep.” John: 21


We are a community where everyone is included. A place of nurture where through creative learning, acceptance and celebration we are all able to flourish. Our inclusive school encourages children to be curious, passionate, ambitious and courageous. Everyone at St Mary of Charity is determined to be confident in who they are, aspire to realise their full potential and support each other through respect, honesty and forgiveness. Guided by Jesus we are accepting of the wonderful diversity within our community and have hope that our children will continue to advocate for and celebrate the unique needs of all throughout our wider world.  

Church Worship 


We hold special services at St Mary of Charity church throughout the Christian year, these include Harvest, Christmas and Easter where the whole school come together to worship.

Prayer Days


We work alongside Canterbury Christian Schools Work Trust to run regular prayer days throughout the year. This are quiet, reflective spaces where the children have the opportunity to think and reflect on Jesus and what he means to them in their world. We are thankful to the work of the CCSWT which enables our pupils to have these opportunities. Below are some examples of the activities that the children have taken part in.
