Praying together

At St Thomas’ we have a strong, distinctive Christian ethos and encourage children to develop values of Forgiveness, Friendship, Perseverance and Respect. We ensure that children learn these values through the teachings and stories that Jesus told. Children have opportunities to think about and apply Christian values through religious education lessons, collective worship and as an integral part of our curriculum.

In addition we welcome families of many faiths and recognise that our community includes many different religions and ethnicities and we have much to learn from each other.

We have very good links with our local church, St Thomas’ Kensal Town.  We would like to introduce our lovely priest Father Samuel McNally-Cross.  The school gathers at the church at least once every half term where we celebrate events such as Harvest, Christmas and St Thomas’ day.

During the day there are opportunities for prayer and reflection. Here is our school prayer:

Oh Lord bless our school

So that by learning together and praying together

We may learn to serve you and serve one another

Through Jesus Christ Our Lord
