Unique collective worship resources giving children confidence,
ownership, independence, and theological understanding.
Child-Led Collective Worship resources provide 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’ Cof E primary school, Cheltenham was awarded ‘excellent’ in February 2019, under the new siams criteria for church schools. Mrs Caryn Smith, deputy head teacher & collective worship subject manager

It is also a tool for moving CW forward with children involved in evaluation, monitoring and future planning, all of which is now required under the NEW SIAMS framework.
