Collective Worship & Liturgy Training
Our school embraces Collective Worship and to ensure that this is of the highest possible standard, we provide ongoing liturgy planning support for staff & pupils alike; this is monitored and reviewed regularly to ensure we continually strive to improve our practice. Acts of Worship include:
Staff also engage in their own special liturgies during staff meetings, staff prayers and at key points in the liturgical year, such as Advent and Lent; providing us with the opportunity to pray and reflect on the Word as a staff team, including the use of ‘Little Lectio’ as a form of worship.
"St Mary Queen of Martyrs Voluntary Catholic Academy is a highly successful school who we value as a partner in the Schools Direct programme. The outstanding staff at the school mentor, support, train and share their expertise with the trainee teachers. The strong Catholic ethos permeates all that they do - the atmosphere of tolerance, respect, forgiveness and reconciliation provides the students with the ideal conditions for personal, academic and professional development."
