Collective Worship / Religious Education / Training / Consultancy / Resources
A time to reflect is more important now than ever. Many teachers are recording themselves reading our assemblies and thoughts for the day and posting them on their digital platforms. Pupils (and parents) can then respond to the reflection questions.

Simply Collective Worship is a scheme of primary school assemblies that has been written to support the busy life of any primary school. Our resources are based on the experience we have gained as teachers and in providing support and training to teachers. Simply Collective Worship is committed to helping schools foster a truly valued and inclusive school community.
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!
RE Project Learning Resource – After pupils receive an email stating that architects want them to design a multi-faith and belief room for an airport being built in your locality, they will endeavour to plan, research and collate the information. The resource is flexible and pupil led and contains enough activities and information to keep pupils occupied for at least half a term. The learning pack consists of detailed lesson/session plans, suggestions for extending the learning with a clear aim to include the learners in directing, researching and designing their own Multi-Faith and Belief Room. Ideal as a blending learning opportunity. Click the image for more details.
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.
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.
Simply Collective Worship is a wonderful resource and guide to schools and it ensures the school is working together.
@Simply_C_W We are loving using the resource. Perfect length for our Worship sessions and really lovely stories and ideas. Thank you!
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.
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.
'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.'
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.
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.
An excellent, easy to use which is so relevant to the spiritual needs of the children in our schools today - highly recommended!
Excellent, easy to use resources that has helped build our foundations for collective worship in our school. Excellent links with British values and SMSC.
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.
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.
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.
