All assemblies end with a daily collective act of worship. During this time children will be asked to bow their heads and join the assembly taker in a prayer to their God or they can just think their own thoughts. Assembly taker then finishes their prayer with an Amen.

During assemblies staff and Y6 are expected to support behaviour. Children are expected to be silent and sit smartly throughout including entry and exit.

Class Assemblies
These are assemblies to take place for parents and families of the class. The class can also invite people from the local community (lollipop lady, Local MP, Secondary staff, Mayor, Manager of Sainsbury’s Express) and every class must invite at least 2 of these. Involve the children in the inviting (allow plenty of notice).
Assemblies are to last 20 minutes and of high standard based on curriculum areas of current learning, or British Values celebrations. Office to arrange refreshments for class and parents afterwards.
