Our Mission & Christian Values

Our Mission

St. James’ and Ebrington School is a church school where the Christian faith lies at the heart of all we do.  We aim to develop the potential of every member of our school – socially, mentally, spiritually and physically.


We treat others with understanding and respect.

Welcome to our Worship Committee Page. Our Worship Committee is represented by a member from each year group from Reception to Year 6.


Our Aims are:

Our role is to help our school evaluate collective worship and find ways to develop its Christian character. We also want to make sure there are special areas, both inside and out, where people can reflect and say prayers. We want to support our school as we develop our different values each term.


Our priorities for 2019/20:

  • To develop new spiritual areas both inside and outside of the classroom.
  • To do an audit of the resources within our spiritual and reflection areas and order new equipment to improve these.
  • To set up Worship boxes each term.
  • To set up Worship daily.
  • To evaluate worship and make suggestions about how we can improve it




St James’ and Ebrington, we attend collective worship each day. 

Each day we explore our current value through the following worships:


Monday - worship led by Reverend Craig Bishop

Tuesday - whole school songs of praise

Wednesday - 'Open the Book' or class Worship

Thursday – class collective worship

Friday - Celebration Worship and Gold Book


Our Worship Committee begin the worship with our worship call and response, they recognise the symbolism of the candle, cross and Bible as the Trinity, and finish all collective worships with our school prayer. Throughout each term our Worship Committee lead a number of worships.


Other Worships:

Throughout the year, each class will deliver their own special worship to the school, parents and community around that term's current Christian value. We also hold special worships such as our Pebble worship and Leavers' Service, as well as celebrating Christian events such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter. Please keep an eye out for these dates by looking at the school calendar. 


A note from our Worship Committee

We are very proud to have all been given jobs in our committee and wear our new badges with pride. Mrs Pickup has bought some new candles which work with batteries which means that everyone can light them whenever they want the light of Jesus to fill them. It even means that Reception can use them when they use their reflection area.

Our next job is to create a ‘move-it-move-it’ to a Christian song which the whole school join in with on Fridays.
