At Micklehurst, we are extremely proud of our pupil-led Ethos Council. The children work as a team to help drive our school vision, ethos and Christian distinctiveness. They meet regularly and play an active role in planning and leading some of our collective worships, taking part in learning walks and looking for ways to promote our school values.

Our Ethos Council members then wrote their own prayer in response to the Collective Worship to share with the whole school community and mark this important day:
