Assemblies

Family assemblies take place on a Wednesday morning at 9.05am. If your child has been chosen to recieve a 'Special Mention' certificate by their class teacher, or has another achievement we want to celebrate such as becoming a Rainbow Reader, learning Reception key words and numbers or taking part in a special activity, you will recieve a letter inviting you to attend the assembly and we would love to see you there!

You may also be invited to watch your child perform in a class assembly on a Friday afternoon. Class assemblies normally begin at 2.45pm and are a brilliant way for children to share what they have been learning about with the whole school.

If you intend to come to an assembly in school, please arrive at least a few minutes early so that we can start promptly.
