Child Led Solutions


Child-Led Collective Worship resources providing children with the materials,
skills and tools they need to plan and lead collective worship in their own classrooms.

Supporting the new SIAMS Criteria for Church Schools, children explore, investigate, interpret and evaluate the teachings of Jesus, biblical characters and concepts through whole class. Children consider what they have learnt, then reflect upon how they could change their behaviours, values and attitudes and apply them to their everyday lives.

“The CLCW resources are excellent and have been key to the success in developing a successful worship team who are at the heart of our school worship. They are a ready-made worship which are easy for the children to access, develop and adapt to match their own style and the needs of their class; whether they are leading worship with older or younger children. The Year 5/6 worship enable the children to progress as worship leaders through having greater autonomy to choose their own Bible story and develop their own worship through the guidance given.”
— St James’ C of E Primary School, Cheltenham was awarded 'EXCELLENT', under the NEW SIAMS criteria for Church Schools.
Mrs Caryn Smith, Deputy Head Teacher & Collective Worship Subject Manager

“CLCW inspires others-they all want to have a go! It gives the teacher time to really listen to what is happening – I was overwhelmed by the ‘talk’ that I heard – great participation, probing questions, quality reflection time and partner discussion and confident enough to push their peers for further ideas through follow up questions.”
— Mrs Sarah Richardson, Deputy Headteacher, St Katherine’s CE Primary School, Christchurch

“Staff Training Sessions Feedback:
• Really enjoyed seeing the CLCW filmed in a real classroom, what the children achieved, how they behaved and responded to each other; and how to extend their answers.
• Helpful to have time to discuss ways CLCW can be planned into the curriculum. A good balance of time to discuss and evaluate/listen to the input.
• Perfect for gathering evidence for SIAMS.”
— Staff Training Sessions feedback from Schools 2019.
