The Collective Worship Policy at Bradworthy School follows the guidance of:
• Circular 1/94 Religious Education and Collective Worship
• Devon Local Education Authority Guidelines on Collective Worship in Maintained Schools
"In the light of the Christian traditions of Great Britain, collective worship is to be wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character." (Education Reform Act 1988, Education Act 1993)
Education Reform Act (1988) and the Education Act (1993) state that acts of worship may contain certain elements drawn from a number of different faiths, but that within each term, the majority of acts of worship must be wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character.
At Bradworthy School our collective worship is broadly Christian but is distinct from corporate worship within a faith group. There are occasions when other faiths are the focus during collective worship, (for example festivals, holy days etc).
