Interesting discussion occured recently re collective worship in the reception class of our church school. Reception children dont go to school assemblies often, we tend to have our own assembly in our classroom with music, candle, period of reflection etc. In the past I have started this in January term, and not in Autumn term. HT now wants it happening this term , but FS staff are confused as this term there are no children of statutory school age as this begins the term after thier fifth birthday ie from Jan! We were under the impression that cw should start when the chn are of stat school age. I have been searching the internet but cannot find anything relating to this, only that collective worship should take place daily. Can anyone clarify the stat school bit for me or tell me where I can find it in black and white. Thanks!
