We have a statutory obligation to ensure that the children are engaged in: ‘A daily act of collective worship on a broadly Christian basis’. Assemblies are the perfect vehicle for reinforcing how we want our pupils to be: polite, well-mannered, well-behaved, thoughtful, enthusiastic and creative citizens who have a zest for learning and life. Assemblies are also a good opportunity for reinforcing British culture and traditions, culture of other countries, as well as exploring moral and historical tales as well as religious stories, ideas and practices of religions other than Christianity. To make it an act of worship, there will be a prayer and an opportunity for reflection.

CLASS ASSEMBLIES

Each class does one class assembly per year. These are timetabled to ensure that they are spread across the Autumn, Spring and Summer term. The class teacher will invite parents to attend. They are invited to stay for coffee and biscuits after the assembly.

END OF DAY
