At Sileby Redlands Community Primary we aim to provide our children with a wealth of experiences that expose them to a variety of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural beliefs. Our children are expected to be respectful of different beliefs and faiths and British Values within the Global community. Our assemblies provide an opportunity for our school to come together as a whole school to share these experiences and to discuss current issues that affect our school, our community, our country and the world that we live in.

We timetable a whole school assembly every day to provide a time for both pupils and staff to reflect on successes and challenges that they may encounter. This reinforces our school Vision to create confident, motivated and resilient learners. Planned assemblies are also shared with Parents to ensure that they have the opportunity to discuss with their children key messages and successes that have been discussed and presented in the parent assembly.

We feel that it is important that our children get to know the school staff as individuals and therefore we see the delivery of assemblies as a shared staff opportunity. Staff across the senior management team shares the responsibility of delivering key assemblies across the week, with teaching staff taking the lead when a specific focus on their subject leadership is being discussed. To ensure that our pupil’s voice is heard, after training, the School Council will lead an assembly or part of an assembly to discuss issues and resolutions which have been raised by the pupils themselves. A senior member of staff will always be present to respond to key points raised and to coordinate further actions with the School Council during their weekly meetings.
