The daily assembly is an important occasion where the whole main school meets together to participate in celebration and Christian worship.
Collective Worship is planned to be a happy time for everyone. We meet in the hall and the Headteacher and class teachers lead the assembly, often with the help of the children. Parents, governors and friends are invited to join us on Fridays for celebration assemblies where children share their work and talk about what they have been doing and learning.
Care, service and love of others, values for life , respect for the world and charity for those in need are some of the key teaching points of our Collective Worship. Representatives from other denominations in the town also lead our assemblies from time to time. We attend St. Michael’s & All Angels Church half termly, Canon Revd Andrew Beane leads Collective Worship once a week and other members of the churches in Aylsham lead Collective Worship each half-term at school.
The church’s year is reflected in our special assemblies – for example, Mothering Sunday and Harvest Festival. These are always very popular and well supported by the whole St Michael’s community.
If for any reason, parents wish to withdraw their child from Collective Worship, they are invited to discuss the matter with the Head teacher.
