St Teresa's Catholic Primary School and Nursery 3-11

from smallest to greatest

Celebration of the Word

At St. Teresa's, we know that Christ is at the centre of everything we do. The Catholic life of the school is rich in opportunities for children to encounter God and to deepen their relationship with Him as a loving, compassionate Father. Through prayer, both traditional and informal; through whole school and class liturgies and Religious Education lessons, children receive direct teaching of the faith. In addition, through the relationships and support for each other that children, staff and parents enjoy within the school community, we enable children to come to know and love God.

Prayer and worship are central to the daily life of our school. We aim to provide opportunities for children's spiritual growth and development through participation in a variety of forms of worship and through experiencing all forms of prayer: formal, informal, spontaneous, private, shared, petitionary and meditative.

Pupils are actively involved in planning and leading worship, both in class groups and whole school settings. Shared acts of worship take place in an atmosphere of reflection and stillness, where we encourage each other to listen to God speaking to us and to respond. 

Each day, there is a communal act of worship. This can be at a whole school, key stage or class level. We use a variety of means of worship to raise our hearts and minds to God. Parish Masses are attended every half term by Key Stage Two classes. Parents are welcomed to Masses and class liturgies throughout the year.
