Every day the whole school gathers together in the school hall for an assembly and an act of worship usually from 10.15 -10.35 am. We aim to ensure that children experience “awe and wonder” during this time together - inspired by the world in which we live and that their curiosity to ask questions is fostered.
We have a range of assembly themes - some linked to the RE curriculum and some to the SEAL curriculum (see below for more detail). On Mondays, we begin the week with a Positive Behaviour theme such as 'honesty' or 'kindness.' On Fridays, children enjoy a Celebration Assembly where we focus on children that have been displaying our values of Caring, Excelling, Enjoying and Inspiring and this is a chance to share any other achievements that they have accomplished out of school. Throughout the week, children enter assemblies listening to different musical genres and they are given information about the artists and composers. This is to create the right ambiance for assembly and to mark it as a special time as well as to contribute to our music curriculum.
We are also very proud that all our pupils have opportunities to prepare and deliver their own assemblies, either independently or in small groups on a theme e.g. Caring for your pet. News and World Assemblies also are part of our rota, where we discuss current affairs and global themes or crises.
If you do not wish your child to take part in the daily collective worship, please contact the headteacher, Mrs Ruth Elstone.
