Prayer at St Martin's
At the beginning of each lesson, students commit their learning to God in an affirmation which includes the school expectations. We have special prayers that are said at the beginning of every examination. We also have a Prayer Tree in the Student Services Reception area where students and staff can write prayers and hang them up for everyone to read and share. Prayer requests are also read out in whole school Collective Worship. We have a coin version of this in the Sixth Form Reception.
We offer Prayer time for staff in the school Chapel. We also have many opportunities for students to pray on an individual basis, one-to-one or in small groups. As a school that respects and embraces all faiths and those with no faith, we provide a quiet space for Muslim students to pray.
Each of our school values, Service, Compassion, Justice, Perseverance has a special prayer that has been written by our students.
