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.
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.
St James’ and Ebrington, we attend collective worship each day.
Each day we explore our current value through the following worships:
- worship led by Reverend Craig Bishop
- whole school songs of praise
- 'Open the Book' or class Worship
– class collective worship
- 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.
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.
