We are sharing a weekly Collective Worship on the main school Dojo page, and in addition, the Diocese of St Alban's Website Schools will have a weekly worship at home resource.
Take a look on the: ‘Worship at Home’ web-page.
Here you will find a weekly worship at home resource from the Diocese of St Alban's Schools Team, including creative activities, think pieces and prayers. These materials have been created for use by the entire school community, and schools are welcome to share them with children and families through their current remote-learning channels. A new resource will be made available each week during term-time. We hope you find these useful!

Collective Worship at Totternhoe is a highly valued time of the school day, where the whole school community gathers together in a time that is honouring and worthy to God. During Collective Worship, our values provide opportunities fro discussion about diversity, spiritual growth and development in our children and adults. This is demonstrated through the teachings of Jesus, stories from a range of cultures and backgrounds, and personal experiences of our pupils and adults.
The school uses the Christian values of the 'Roots and Fruits' materials to add depth to the values teaching. Each half term the theme of our Collective Worship is based on our value, as well as the suggested themes set by the Diocese of St Albans. In addition, we link the festivals and seasons of the church calendar, to national celebrations and special days, to further enrich our whole school ethos.
The Christian character of our school positively contributes to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children, by providing opportunities for them to learn about other people's faiths, feelings and values during Collective Worship, including those planned by pupils, reflection times, RE lessons and extra-curricular activities.
We extend a warm welcome to Reverend Kaushal to lead Collective Worship each week, where he has been teaching the children the Lord's Prayer, as well as providing additional teachings about significant events in the Christian calendar, including Christmas and Easter.
We also welcome the 'Open the Book' team from St Giles, who come along once each school term to lead Collective Worship in a fun, interactive and engaging way. They often choose children to come to the front and join in, helping them to deliver their message by acting out stories or reading out passages from the Bible.
