                   St Michael’s Church School Prayers

We invite our children to pray at least three times through the school day.

Our prayers are said before food (breakfast and lunchtime), during Collective Worship and at home time.

The children are invited to join in with the words or to simply say 'Amen' at the end.

If they choose to not pray then we ask them to take time to reflect, pause and think about something specific such as living our core values, our vision or something they are grateful for in their life.  

These prayers are on display in the classrooms and around school. 

We also say 'Our School Prayer' and the 'Lord's Prayer' during Collective Worship.

To prepare our brains for a day of learning.

Our School Prayer 

This was written by the children who first started the school in 2012. It is said regularly in school during Collective Worship and other times in the school day.

Dear Lord,

Hear our prayer,

Help us to enjoy our school and the wonderful world you have created,

Teach us to respect ourselves and each other.

Show us how to care as you care for each one of us.

Give us the skills to use our talents wisely, so that are the best we can be.

In our hearts, we pray,
