Prayer Leaders

Our Prayer Leaders lead prayer and worship across the school. They attend training in the diocese and lead prayer in assembly. Prayer leaders also visit each class to encourage the children to develop their faith.  They are identified through their Prayer Leader Sweaters.


Congratulations to our newly appointed Prayer Leaders. They all did so amazing in the interviews with Mrs Scott and Father Boast that we appointed all those who applied. 


Here are some of Prayer Leaders who were commissioned at the Valley Mass.




Valley Mass

Our Prayer Leaders have got a new timetable that they will be following next half term. They will be learning about the Rosary and how to teach other children about this.


The Prayer Leaders are going to be involved in a project called Mission Together and will be taking part in some fundraising days.


On the first week back after half term, we are having a learning week about Hinduism. The Prayer Leaders will be leading on an assembly about the faith. At the end of the week we are going to be learning more about the Indian culture and will be taking part in some Indian dancing with a  special visitor.
