In addition to whole school assemblies, children attend key stage assemblies. In these assemblies teachers explore a variety of themes, celebrations and commemorations at an age appropriate level. Children also attend regular singing assemblies, in which they learn songs to share at a number of school events.
We welcome a number of visitors into assemblies to share both their personal and specialist experiences. Previous guests include WheelPower Ambassador Chris Rattenbury, Cosmic Cynthia from Mad Science and representatives from Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and the NSPCC.
All maintained schools must provide religious education and daily collective worship for all registered pupils to promote their spiritual, moral and cultural development. Collective worship in county schools must be mainly of a broadly Christian character. At Bracken Leas this is covered through weekly class reflection.
Parents have a right to withdraw their children from Collective Worship or religious education. If that right is to be exercised then parents should contact the school so suitable alternative arrangements can be made.
