Dear God thank you for our school
We thank you that each one of us is special and amazing
We pray that our school is a palace of peace
Full of happiness, epic adventure and big dreams
A place where we encourage and bring out the best in each other.
Help us to be kind, work hard, be grateful and to see
the awesome wonders of the world all around us.
Let us be a shining light in our community
And proud to be part of our school.

Amen

Our school prayer- written by our pupils 
The act of Worship is intended to reflect our Christian tradition. It is important that our pupils also gain awareness and understanding of other world religions.

The arrangements for worship are varied; we hold class, year group and whole school assemblies at different times during the week. These are often attended by the vicar of St. Cuthbert’s Church as well as clergy from other churches in Wells.

A fortnightly high point for the children is an ‘Open the Book’ session led by a group from Christians together in Wells. During a short, interactive assembly the pupils thoroughly enjoy dressing in costume and performing the stories.

Under the provision of the Education Reform Act 1988 all parents have a right to withdraw their child from the school’s act of collective worship, or from Religious Education. Any parent wishing to withdraw a child from these elements of the curriculum should make a written request through the Headteacher. Our religious education policy has been drawn up in accordance with the Local Education Authority’s non-denominational Agreed Syllabus.
