Our Church School

Our Christian Values

As a church school, St. Gilbert’s sees the growth of its children and their faith as something which underpins everything we do. We value the warm and positive ethos which is palpable as you walk around the school. We encourage our children to ask questions, to explore what having a faith really means, opening them up to experiences with a variety of faiths and denominations, and support them in their journey as they make decisions about the place of God in their lives.

As a school, we follow the Christian Values from the Roots and Fruits Collective Worship resource. Roots and Fruits is a Christian collective worship resource, rooted in the Bible teaching with twelve Christian values representing the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life.


Organisation of Worship

Monday Whole School Worship based on the Christian Value for the term, led by clergy or the Head
Teacher with prayers and the lesson for the day written and read by the Worship Committee.
Tuesday Worship in classes following iSIngPOP led by class teachers.
Wednesday Phase Worship expanding children's understanding of the Christian Value for the term led by a class teacher and once per term led by a class in KS2.
Thursday Whole School Sing and Pray led by the Deputy Head Teacher.
Friday Celebration Worship where pupil and staff achievements are recognised and valued, underpinned by our vision, led by a member of the Leadership Team.


Over the course of two years, the children will learn about and explore 12 different values. These values help to strengthen and focus our worship and daily lives in school, and we will continue to build upon these as we learn and grow together as Christians. Each term focusses on one value that links with the season of the Church year. Roots and Fruits supports SIAMS requirements and meets the criteria set out in the evaluation schedule. 


Due to our wish that we want all children to experience in all its fullness, as taught by God, it is important that pupils are able to have a voice in shaping Worship so that they are fully involved. As a result, our Trustees, Collective Worship Committee and Church Lead monitor worship every short term.
