St Thomas More Catholic

Primary School

Christ is the centre of our School community, where we live, love and learn together

Prayer and Liturgy

Our Catholic Faith is central to the day-to-day life of our school and all aspects of the curriculum. All pupils are encouraged to recognise the importance of their faith and they respond to all forms of liturgy and collective worship with respect and reverence.


At St Thomas More, we have rich liturgical life. Together we celebrate our role as part of our school community, parish and wider community, where we understand how much of precious and a joyful opportunity it is to be on our life-long faith journey with others. Weekly ‘Mission’ assemblies are held for all staff and children focusing on the Gospel from Sunday’s Liturgy in order to help the children understand the key messages and meaning behind it. Additionally, Key Stage assemblies are led by different members of staff. These can be focus on scripture, a ‘Saint of the Day’ or as a time for prayer and reflection.


Our Parish Priest Fr Christopher regularly celebrates Mass in school. Each class has their own celebration of the Mass and the children are involved in the planning and participation of the celebration. In addition, we celebrate our school feast day, holy days of obligation and other significant occasions. The Celebration of the Eucharist and prayer are central in our school.


All acts of worship have a liturgical structure and are thoroughly planned and delivered.

'The God Who Speaks'


‘Today Jesus speaks those same words to you: “Take heart, I am here with you, allow me to enter and your life will change”. That is why the Lord gives you his word, so that you can receive it like a love letter…’

Pope Francis
