Church Links/Religious Education and Collective Worship
Our church runs two youth groups, Quest on Wednesday evenings for children 8-11 and Toast on Sunday evenings for teenagers. If you are interested in joining these youth groups then please contact Tim Ball via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Father Andre Hart is our Parish Priest, regular acts of worship take place both at school and our beautiful parish church here in Westbury. Father Andre is also a Foundation Governor and Chair of our Ethos Committee.
Each term we take a different value to study across the whole school which are taken from the Values for Life curriculum.
Collective Worship is a legal requirement. Westbury-on-Trym Academy is a Church of England Primary Academy within the parish of Holy Trinity, Westbury-on-Trym and the Diocese of Bristol. Worship therefore reflects shared Christian values and is central to the daily life of the Academy. It offers opportunities to explore, reflect on and respond to the mystery and meaning of the Christian faith. All acts of worship reflect the Academy’s Trust Deed that worship should be “in accordance with the principles and practices of the Church of England” and are also within the Anglican tradition of serving the whole local community.
Acts of Collective Worship at Westbury-on-Trym CE Academy are used to encourage pupils to come together and allow them to reflect upon their shared human experience and feelings of joy and sadness, thankfulness and need, their reflections on shared values and concerns and the exploration of the spiritual area of experience. These experiences and attitudes can also lead to a fuller and more mature capacity for worship. Our Services are taken on a daily basis by a range of people including: the Headteacher, Father Andre, Father Adam, staff or children.
We regularly welcome clergy from other Churches and members of the wider community into school.
