Assembly & Circle Time

Assemblies and circle times are fundamental in promoting the ethos of the school and providing children with an opportunity for collective reflection and the consideration of spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) issues. All staff have a duty to promote the themes planned for in our circle time and assembly timetable. 

Year Group Assembly - All of KS2 and Year 2 classes will have one year group assembly each week. Assembly themes are recorded and mapped on the assembly timetable and will include national awareness days, religious festivals and any other topics which support the school ethos.

Circle Time - KS1 and KS2 will have two circle times each week based on the themes of Wellbeing, Safeguarding or British Values. Circle Time themes are recorded and mapped on the assembly timetable. It is also an opportunity for children to express their ideas and concerns with everyone and their teacher. 

Phase Achievement Assembly - KS1 and KS2 will have a weekly phase achievement assembly. This is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of children that week. This will be planned for and led by a member of staff within the phase. 

Pupil Voice – KS2 and Year 2 will have a weekly pupil voice assembly led by one of the school pupil voice groups with the support of the class teacher. 

Circle times are planned for as part of the assembly and circle time schedule.
