Worship & Assemblies



Worship is at the heart of daily life at Aston C of E...

We promote all Christian Values in all we do with a particular emphasis on:

Friendship “Encourage one another and build each other up.” 1Thessalonians 5:11

We believe true friendship enables each person to grow and ensures that the unique individuality of each person is recognised. All this echoes the value placed by God on the preciousness of each person. 

Trust “My God in my strength in whom I trust” Psalm 18.2

We believe trust lies at the heart of all of our relationships and we learn to trust in each other and in ourselves.  We show that trust is putting yourself in others’ hands and that trust must be earned by our friends.

Respect “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6.31

We ensure the children have a good understanding about the concept of mutual respect and individual liberty. We teach the children about the ‘protected characteristics’ and we support the children to love and recognise the goodness in everyone.

We encourage all children to love and recognise the goodness in everyone, making a positive contribution and developing their own spiritual understanding. All children will be supported to take responsibility for their actions and show respect and tolerance for each other and the wider community whilst celebrating and promoting diversity.

Roots and Fruits
'A tree is known by its fruit' - Matthew 12.33

Roots and Fruits is what we base our Christian Values and collective worship on. It is rooted in Bible teaching and twelve Christian values represent the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life. Each term focuses on one value (theme) which links with the season of the Church year. We promote Christian values in all we do with particular emphasis on:

Cycle A

Generosity, Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship, Respect

Cycle B

Thankfulness, Trust, Perseverance, Justice, Service, Truthfulness


The church calendar is made up of seasons that follow the life of Jesus. The church year begins in late November or early December with Advent, a time of preparation for Jesus’ birth. In Christian churches one of four colours – purple, green, gold (or white) and red – referred to as ‘liturgical colours’, are used for altar linen, clergy robes and various hangings. The colour reflects the season, so that for instance in Advent purple is used, a colour of royalty because we are preparing to welcome the coming of a king. Purple is used again in Lent because it also symbolises suffering and pain.

At Christmas and Easter the colour changes to white or gold, both bright optimistic colours for festivals, times for joy and celebration. Between the festivals green cloths symbolise all living things, renewal and promise of new life. And finally, red is the colour of fire, used in churches to celebrate Pentecost and saints’ days.

Worship Leaders

The Worship Council is made up of leaders from KS1 & 2.

Worship Council’s role is to help lead collective worship, monitor collective worship and help promote reflection and collective worship around the school. 



Career Visitors 

On Tuesdays we focus on our progression to adulthood. We are regularly visited by inspiring careers people. They discuss what their career is like, how they found their ideal career, the positive and negative aspects of their days and what kind of qualities you need for different roles.
