St Martin's Church of England Primary School

‘Faith and Endeavour - Living and Learning together’

Collective Worship

Worship is an integral part of  our school life. Worship is presented in a relevant and purposeful way to our children and school community to ensure it supports their daily lives. We endeavour to ensure our children have a variety of approaches which engage and excite them and develops their spiritual growth. Our worships are invitational and inclusive and enable staff and children from other faiths or do not hold a religious belief are able to participate.


Worship embodies our school Christian Vision and ensures that all have the opportunity to flourish. During our daily worship we follow the Canterbury Diocese Collective Worship plans.

Our main church link is with  St Martin's Church, Folkestone, but we also make links with other local churches including Harbour Church and South Kent Community Church. They work in partnership with the school and contribute regularly to the heart of the school.
