Opening the door to life and learning

Church School and Collective Worship


 ’soar high on wings like eagles’. (Isaiah 40:31)


Woodville C.E. Junior School is part of the Leicester diocese and has close links with St Stephen’s Church Woodville. The children regularly visit St Stephen’s and during their career at Woodville C.E. Junior School have the opportunity to lead acts of collective worship. Fr Tom Barnfather was a regular visitor to school and lead an act of collective worship every month before his retirement. We currently don't have a visiting priest.

SIAMS - Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools

Before lunch we celebrate the food we eat by saying grace while during our acts of collective worship we conclude by sharing our School Prayer or the prayer that Jesus taught us (The Lord’s Prayer). Here is our school prayer:


This is our School

Let peace dwell here,

Let the rooms be full of contentment,

Let love abide here,

Love of mankind,

Love of one another,

Love of life itself

And love of God.

Let us remember that

For every hand that builds a house,

Every heart makes a school.




This year we continue to take a look, every term, at one of the values in the 'ROOTS AND FRUITS' scheme.


The values this year are:

  • Thankfulness
  • Trust
  • Perseverance
  • Justice
  • Service
  • Truth & Truthfulness




As we move from the restrictions of the pandemic, each term we take a closer look  at one of the values in our Collective Worship, following the 'ROOTS AND FRUITS' scheme.  


The values this year are:

  • Generosity
  • Compassion
  • Courage
  • Forgiveness
  • Friendship
  • Respect


Father Tom visits regularly to lead acts of collective worship.
