Collective Worship/ Assemblies


Collective worship / assemblies are held each day. This is important for children and staff to come together as a community to reinforce the school’s shared values.


We aim for all children to join us for assembly but respect the right that parents have to withdraw their children.


It is the responsibility of each member of staff to ensure that:

  • Children conduct themselves in a quiet orderly manner within the school building
  • The children are aware of and take note of the school values and behaviour system
