Collective Worship is an integral part of the school day at Tutshill Church of England Primary School. It aims to foster the spiritual development of all members of the Tutshill family. Collective Worship is delivered by the Head teacher, members of the teaching staff, the pupils and members of the ministry team from St Luke’s Church.
'Collective Worship embraces a school community of all faiths and none. Everyone comes together to celebrate God’s love for all. There is a quiet enthusiasm from adults and pupils as they embrace this deeply reflective time. Sharing examples of how love is shown in today’s world enables them to be strengthened and inspired to do the same.'

Our Collective worship offers opportunity for stillness, prayer, worship and reflection. The use of Roots and Fruits resources, iSingPop and child-led worship ensures all members of the Tutshill family experience many different types of worship. For example, music and singing with iSing Pop; story, reflection and prayer through Roots and Fruits and global awareness through our weekly news 'Picture News'.
Each week, there is a celebration worship where all members of the school community come together to celebrate success and achievement. This is a great opportunity to see our Christian Vision in action as children explain how they have used our vision and values in their daily life.
The school has a close link with the local church, St Luke’s, where the children enjoy a fortnightly service as well as celebrations for Christian festivals throughout the liturgy calendar. The Children and Families' Minister (Emma) alongside Vicar David and Reverand Nikki work closely with staff to ensure our worship is inspiring and inclusive.
