Our Christian Character
Daily Prayer and Reflection
Daily prayer is an important part of life at Torre. In addition to whole school and class collective worship, every classroom has a designated area for reflection. Classes have regular opportunity for focussed reflection time based on a theme.
We have a hardworking team of staff, pupils, parents, governors and our vicar striving to ensure that the school vision ‘We live life in all it’s fullness’ is at the heart of everything we do at Torre. This committee meets regularly and works towards an action plan.
There is a spirituality trail around the school. Our trail helps us to look out on the world and gaze in wonder at the things we find amazing and also to help us understand the things that are not so good. It gives us opportunities to reflect and think about some of life’s big questions. It gives us opportunities to do something creative to help us to share our own thoughts and feelings.
Class assembly is linked to the current worship theme, but also incorporates a current news event. This encourages the children to think of and respond to bigger questions about life and the world.
Teachers consider at the beginning of a half-term, opportunities for the children linked to the curriculum to grow spiritually.
Every summer the Ethos group plans and sets up a prayer tent. This is based around a theme and has included exploring the schools' vision and values and focus character traits.
