Prayer & Reflection

At Woodstock CE Primary School prayer forms part of our daily act of collective worship. We recognise that prayers can only have a religious significance for some, but they have potential to give spiritual insights for all.

Our School Prayer

Jesus I give you my day,
All my work and all my play,
All I do and all I say,
Please help me to do it the right way.
Amen

Both adults and children lead prayer at our school. Opportunities for the impromptu sharing of a prayer are given. We also recognise that prayer does not have to be spoken and we often use silence to reflect upon our thoughts and feelings.

All classes have a prayer focus area within their classrooms and children have opportunities for reflection time throughout the week.  A reflection book is used to capture the children's thoughts and feelings, if they want to share these.

In addition, we have a prayer and reflection room which children are invited to spend time in during the lunch hour.  We have a whole-school prayer tree which children and staff can use to write a prayer for someone.
