Prayer forms part of our daily worship. However, prayer is invitational. Prayer may be part of the period of reflection and stillness, with children invited to participate in prayer if they wish. If not, they are asked to respect the moment of quiet in a way they choose best. Every effort is made to show sensitivity towards personal faiths and to include all pupils and staff in Collective Worship. For example, when using a prayer from a particular faith, this will be introduced with sensitivity and pupils will not be required to say or affirm prayers which they do not believe. 

Children at Hormead are invited to learn The Lord’s Prayer, as well as our school prayer, and these are used on an almost daily basis. 

Our school prayer is shared with parents in our school prospectus. Children are encouraged to learn our prayer which encompasses our school Vision: Love of Learning, Love of Life itself and Love of God.

Children are also invited to join in a lunchtime prayer which is sung aloud before the children leave their classrooms to eat.

Bless us O’ God
As we sing together,
Bless the food we eat today,
Bless the hands that make the food,
Bless us O’ God
