Assemblies

SMSC

WE ENCOURAGE CHILDREN TO THINK ABOUT HUMANITY AND HOW TO LIVE IN HARMONY. ASSEMBLIES INCLUDE TALKS ON BEHAVING APPROPRIATELY AND SHOWING RESPECT TOWARDS TEACHERS, PUPILS AND ADULTS. WE BELIEVE WE ARE ALL EQUAL AND THAT DIFFERENCES DO NOT CAUSE PROBLEMS, RATHER THEY ENRICH OUR LIVES.

We offer an invitation to everyone, whatever their personal beliefs, to
share in the development of a caring school community by attending a range of assemblies that celebrate various key religious events e.g. Diwali, Eid, Christmas. Class assemblies are held each term.

Assemblies are important, they set the tone for the whole school as a caring community. We often think about our own behaviour, hear about moral and human issues and share a sense of spiritual togetherness through stories, prayers and songs from all religions.

We hope that families will accept our invitation for their children to come to our assemblies and to share in the development of a caring school community. If parents have any worries or doubts, they have the right to ask for their child to be withdrawn from religious education and collective worship. Parents should contact the Head Teacher to discuss acceptable alternative arrangements.
