Daily Worship & Values for Life

Here at Cavendish we are a Church of England School and as such are part of the diocese of St. Edmundsbury. The Diocesan Board of Education (DBE) is a statutory body with particular functions and responsibilities for church schools, RE and Collective Worship. Church of England schools are inclusive and serve equally those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.

All church schools are subject to the SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) process. SIAMS considers the distinctiveness, effectiveness and sustainability of the Christian ethos of church schools through the impact of the school’s chosen Christian vision.

Schools are inspected no less than 3 to 5 years after their last inspection.

Daily Worship 
Collective worship takes place on a daily basis.  The whole school gathers together for daily acts of collective worship, led by either our HeadTeacher, KeyStage Teacher or our Faith Council.
