Bournebrook is defined by our Christian distinctiveness.  Our Christian ethos is the foundation for all we do and forms the basis of our policies.  The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of children at Bournebrook is directly linked to the Christian principles that surround learning in our school.bbrook 026

Daily Collective worship at Bournebrook begins with a greeting and response, allowing children to take an active part in their own worship.  Themes (such as thankfulness) are carefully chosen each half term to relate to children’s lives.  The lighting of three candles, to represent the Holy Trinity and a prayer written by Bournebrook’s Children’s Prayer Group develops understanding of the Christian faith and the collective singing of a Hymn or song sends our children back to classes having taken part in a shared experience.

Our Altar table reflects the theme of the worship and children are familiar with the Liturgical Calendar and the colours to represent it.
