Our ethos council represents children in our school. The collective worship committee has children from key stage 1 and 2 whereas, the prayer and spirituality and values committees are from key stage 2.
The Ethos Committee represent the different faiths at Saint Barnabas. They have important roles and responsibilities which include regularly meeting with the Ethos Leader to discuss ethos, RE teaching, collective worship and religious festivals that are celebrated. They are central to our child led worship and contribute to whole school and key stage worship. When we have worship together in the hall, they hold open doors for the whole school, light the candle, say our words of welcome and sending, share our ethos, read from the bible, keep the Collective Worship display up to date, lead the school prayer, say prayers from other faiths and share children's prayers. The Ethos Committee evaluate Collective Worship regularly and are the voice of the pupils for worship time at St Barnabas Primary School.
