Class Assemblies

Once a term, children will perform in a class assembly. This usually takes place on Fridays and parents are invited to attend. Children work with their class teacher to present a story, song, dance and prayer linked to their current International Primary Curriculum theme.

 

Please see the school calendar to find out when your child's next class assembly will take place.

Reward Assemblies

Every Friday we have a 'Celebration' Assembly. Prior to the assembly, teachers select two children per class who have worked extremely hard and/or have achieved greatness throughout the week. During the assembly thereason they have been selected for a 'special mention' is shared with the school. Children also share examples of outstanding work with the rest of the school.

 

Our behaviour policy states, that when children achieve a Gold standard of excellent behaviour at the end of the day.

 

During class time, the children earn 'House Points throughout the school day. These are collated by the House Captains every Friday and the team that have the most team points, win a prestidious cup for the week. A running total of team points is on display in the hall.


Children are also awarded individual certificates for earning House Points which are presented during Celebration Assembly.
