Daily assemblies are held with the whole school or key stage or in the class room. They offer a chance for children to reflect on moral issues and religious ideas. Children are encouraged to consider and develop their own beliefs and appreciate the beliefs and values that other people hold. (This links to the core British Values).
Assemblies usually consists of a song, some teaching which may involve story, use of video clips, child participation, visiting speakers etc. There is often time for quiet reflection or a prayer at the end.
Assemblies promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, encouraging moral standards upheld by most religions. Themes throughout the year provide a time to address any world, whole school or class issues such as: Recycling, keeping healthy, being good citizens, how to share and make good behaviour choices.
There is a weekly celebration assembly where the whole school comes together to acknowledge success, both in and out of school.
