What about assemblies?
Assemblies take place on a weekly basis in houses or year groups. These largely follow the same pattern and theme as the Thought for the Day programme and are delivered, on the whole, by members of the SLT. Assemblies are an opportunity for key messages to be disseminated, but are also a time of reflection and a time for students to spend time in stillness in a larger collective setting.
Assemblies can also be an opportunity for special events and occasions within the school calendar. This can be through external visitors – such as members of different faith groups at particularly special times of the year – or sometimes just specific members of staff with responsibilities for whole school aspects of learning and development – such as A,G&T, Global Education or Citizenship and PSHE.
