Assembly time is an opportunity to come together as a whole school to celebrate, explore and learn. We use assembly time to discuss our core school values; respect, motivation, teamwork, perseverance and focus, and the important role they play in our lives and on our journey to becoming responsible global citizens.
Over the last year we have been discussing how we can live out our school rules (be ready, be safe, be respectful) to be the best that we can be both inside and outside of school.
In assemblies we take time to learn and celebrate traditions and beliefs from around the world. We always look forward to inviting visitors to come and talk to the children so that they can learn to understand cultures that are different to their own.
The children are always very excited to attend celebration assembly, this is a real opportunity to hear how the children have played out our school values and rules in daily life. Staff give out certificates to the children that they have noticed displaying positive behaviours. This is also an opportunity to share the nominations from our ARK books, these are Acts of Random Kindness nominations from the children that are shared with everyone and celebrated.
Twice a week the children have assemblies with their class, this is a time used to reflect on British Values, what they are and how they are reflected around school.
