Our academy enriches our curriculum provision with a comprehensive and inspirational assembly programme to support our students’ personal development and raise their awareness and appreciation of key issues, faiths, events and practices. Assemblies occur in tutor time in same age year groups to support age appropriate guidance and content. Assemblies can also occur as collective meetings of year groups or when times allow vertical mixed aged Continent groups. Assemblies can be extended to create time to allow guest speakers and deliver external programmes for example FRANK Drug Awareness, Road Safety, E-safety etc. Assemblies focus habits of success, skills and qualities that support independent learning. Our assembly programme is an important part of our Intrinsic and Enhancement curriculum provision promoting the culture and ethos of our academies, supporting our students and fostering fundamental British Values, raise social, moral, spiritual and cultural awareness; promote personal, social, health, relationship and sex education. Assembly takes place as a mass gathering in the academy hall and more recently as virtual assemblies delivered into classrooms.
