Schools and daily acts of collective worship
Each pupil must take part in a daily act of collective worship unless they have been withdrawn by their parents.
As a Church of England schools Lady Seaward's provides collective worship in accordance with the tenets and practices of the Church of England.
Our community schools (schools that do not have a religious designation) must provide collective worship that is wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character. A school can reflect the religious backgrounds represented in its community, as long as the majority of provision is broadly Christian.
Our schools follow the Devon and Torbay agreed RE syllabus.
The right to withdraw from religious education and/or collective worship
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from religious education and/or collective worship, and should contact Mr Westwood, Head of School to ask for this. Parents will be invited to a meeting to discuss withdrawal and to explore how their concern may be met. Parents are not obliged to attend such a meeting in which case withdrawal shall be put into effect immediately and the school will notify the parent.

Collective worship values and themes of focus this autumn term 2021
The value of Perseverance
Lady Seaward’s are joined by a number of local Reverends across the term to share in their collective worship. Below are pictures from a recent collective worship led by Reverend Sid Humphries this week who discussed with theepupils the importance of persevering when faced with challenge. Pupils took part in the collective worship assuming the role of different animals working together to persevere towards a common goal.
Reverend Sid discussed the importance of staying strong and resilient during times where we may encounter difficulties. He informed us that the sense of struggle we sometimes experience during set tasks makes the feeling of achievement so much greater at the end.
The Lords Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us of our trespasses,
as we forgive those that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
