Church Life

Old Bexley C of E Primary encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith.  The school promotes Christian values which underpin the Christian identity of our school; reaffirms our vision and associated values; and celebrates the central role that each child has to play in the community.  

We follow the Church of England practice of worship. Prayers and responses, such as the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed and the Grace are known and used by pupils habitually; we follow the Christian liturgical year; candles are lit at the beginning and blown out at the end of Collective Worship; and Christian symbols are visible in the halls.  The daily Christian act of worship is central to our ethos and is supported by all staff and governors; it makes an important contribution to the overall spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the whole school community.  

We are conscious of our historical attachments to both parish churches of St John's and St Mary's, and promote good relationships with the clergy.
