Prayer, in so many different forms, plays a very important part of life at St Bernadette's.  

Please see below to find out how we 'Reach out' to God at St Bernadette's.... 

Classroom Prayers

Our classroom prayers are learnt by children from their early days in school and are said each and every day.   


RE Lessons

We always start our RE lessons with a time for prayer and reflection. Because we are a Catholic school 10% of our teaching time has to be dedicated to RE. 


'Collective Worship'

At St Bernadette's we gather together every day, in one form or another, to pray. 

Monday - 'Gospel Assembly' - Today we learn and talk about stories from the Bible.

Tuesday - 'Praise through Song' - We sing to God!

Wednesday - 'Key Stage Assemblies' - We learn important topics such as Sustainability.

Thursday - 'Class Assemblies'  - Today we celebrate our talents and learning with God and our whole community. We always include prayers and a hymn. 

Friday - 'Celebration Assembly' - On Friday we celebrate our achievements for the week, congratulate those of us who have been good disciples and thank God for the gifts he has given us. 

Liturgies and Masses

Throughout the year we have a number of opportunities for communal worship. Here are just some of them:

  • 'All Saints Day' Mass at St Mary's Church
  • Penetential liturgies during Advent and Lent
  • New school year liturgy
  • Themed liturgies e.g. Harvest, Remembrance, Advent etc. 
  • Carol Service at St Mary's Church
  • Key Stage 'Come and See' liturgies
