Collective Worship / Religious Education / Training / Consultancy / Resources
We believe that assemblies are a special part of the school day that introduce and reinforce important values, both individually and collectively. They are more than just an opportunity to provide a moral message. We think that they can be an important time to support a child’s (and teacher’s) wellbeing. They provide a moment for children and adults to stop and reflect, consider what is important and progress their understanding of themselves and others.
Simply Collective Worship is our four year set of assemblies and thoughts for the day for children aged 7 – 11. Single yearly cycles can be bought separately. Each yearly cycle consists of 195 assemblies and thoughts for the day arranged into 39 weekly themes.
We post links to videos and images from the internet that we think are relevant to our themes as well as other important religious and cultural topics. Useful for RE and Collective Worship coordinators. Be sure to bookmark this page!
Each of our four year schemes consist of 195 assemblies and thoughts for the day, that’s 780 over the four years. We have an assembly, thought for the day or active reflection for every school day for 8 years. We think that is great value. Our ‘Themed Series’ resources are individually priced.
An excellent, easy to use which is so relevant to the spiritual needs of the children in our schools today - highly recommended!
As a school we have been delighted with the content of each yearly cycle of simply collective worship which we use in our morning assemblies for KS2. The website is well set out, easy to navigate and it has been a pleasure dealing with such a well organised and helpful company.
Simply Collective Worship is a wonderful resource and guide to schools and it ensures the school is working together.
I think you have written a brilliant resource here, not just because we have a whole week on a theme but also as I believe all the adults in the school can take life thoughts from them too - it has made our collective worship or thought for the day sessions a real time for reflection for all - thank you.
A great resource for busy schools. Covering a whole range of themes, issues and faiths while providing a firm understanding of the values of Christianity. This recourse is perfect for coming together at the start of the week as a whole school and then continuing the theme in smaller groups throughout the week. Ideal for use in through primary schools as both infant and junior children can access the themes. Great value for money as the 4 cycles can be reused after 4 years meaning all children benefit from the whole programme. Thanks to Phil who could not have been more helpful in his advice and provision of the scheme.
'Having recently been awarded an 'Outstanding' judgement by SIAMS, I would just like to pass on my thanks for your wonderful Simply Collective Worship programme. Our Inspector was so impressed by the resource that she mentioned it in the report.'
One of the only resources on the market that provides a plan for everyday of the week. This makes planning and sharing plans amongst different teachers so much easier and results in themes being unpacked systematically across a week or half term.
Excellent, easy to use resources that has helped build our foundations for collective worship in our school. Excellent links with British values and SMSC.
@Simply_C_W We are loving using the resource. Perfect length for our Worship sessions and really lovely stories and ideas. Thank you!
I have to say that I have used a few schemes in my time in school and this really is the best we have used.
The Simply Collective Worship resources have enabled us, as a large school, to seamlessly link the main Collective Worship/Assembly for the week with the ongoing Class Worships/Class Assemblies. We use the first section of the unit at the start of the week and sections 2-5 are covered in two class sessions during the remainder of the week. The teachers have found the materials both easy to use and a useful resource to promote in depth questioning and discussion with their pupils around the areas of faith and morals within modern society.
I usually pay the supply cost for two members of staff to take one day off timetable to plan our collective worship for the year. This resource is well planned and clear, saving us time and money. Thank you.
If you are anything like me preparing an assembly every morning can be a lot of additional workload- I am now using Simply Collective Worship, it’s easy to use and the children love them.
We have used the Talents section this week. The children left the assembly and told their teachers about it – a first for one of my assemblies!!!! Thank you so much.
