Holy Family Catholic School

As Holy Family, we learn, believe and seek to make the right choices, as God's children

prayer life of holy family



Whole school Mass is celebrated at school each term (start of the school year, Easter and the end of the school year) and parents and parishioners are invited.

A whole school Christmas is celebrated at St James' Church.

In addition to this, each class visits St James' Church every term to celebrate Mass in the Parish.

Class Masses are held for Year 6, in preparation for leaving Holy Family and also for Year 3, in celebration of receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion.


Collective Worship

Collective worship also takes part in class each week.  children are led in worship reflecting on the Word of the Bible.  Scripture is celebrated on a Tuesday morning and responded to by the children on a Thursday morning in class.

On a Friday morning in class, children are led in a worship to discuss, contemplate and reflect on 'Big Questions' about their faith.  This supports the curriculum in the children learning not only about their faith, but also from their faith.



 Every Monday a whole school assembly takes place to reflect on the Gospel from Mass and on the Liturgical Year.

Class assemblies take place every Thursday, where parents are invited to watch their children's class assembly.  These are based on the RE curriculum, CAFOD (the Universal Church), Caritas in Action or the Liturgical Year.



Miss Trueman runs her Reflection group each morning in the Ark before school, where children have the opportunity to spend some quiet time praying and preparing for the school day.
