COLLECTIVE WORSHIP ASSEMBLIES
Pupils will experience an act of collective worship each day, although this is not always on a whole school basis. The act of collective worship will focus on moral, personal and social issues with reference to aspects of Christianity and other religions where relevant.
Our Principal begins the week by inviting the whole school to reflect upon one of our key values, this is then followed u in a s session where teachers delve more deeply in an age appropriate way. Our music specialist teacher leads a singing assembly each week and we invite our local religious leaders to lead Collective Worship each week.
As is the case with RE, you may wish to withdraw your child from this aspect of your child’s education, but will require a signed letter to this effect should you require to do so.
Friday’s assembly includes the presentation of class trophy awards for the child of the week, celebrating achievement across the school. This is part of our whole school approach to learning and positive behaviour and acts as a focus for the week, encouraging children to do their best.
At the end of each half term, we invite parents to a showcase assembly to share our learning.
As a school we celebrate events in the Christian calendar including Harvest Festival, Christmas and Easter. We learn about and celebrate other faiths in assemblies and RE.
