Faith at Hope

Children and Prayer 

Each day children are invited to join in prayers before lunch and at the end of the day. The children may come together at other points during the day to share a prayer or reflection. These prayers may sometimes be led by an adult in the room but are more often, led by the children. Sometimes the Lighthouse children, our pupil voice faith group, may lead these prayers but usually pupils are asked if they would like to lead either a choral prayer or one they choose to say.
