Good News Assembly


Each Friday there is a special Good News Assembly when parents and family members are warmly invited to share the celebration of successes. Teachers and teaching assistants nominate a child from each year group for a Good News certificate. This may be for achievement, progress, helping others or showing acts of kindness. Other awards are also presented for swimming, sporting and special events. Children are welcome to bring in certificates for achievements gained outside school to be presented in Assembly. We regularly celebrate Tae Kwondo, gymnastics, music awards and have even presented a Blue Peter Badge on one occasion! We celebrate birthdays and invite family members to share in these.


During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been unable to meet together in the school hall. Instead, our Year 6 children have led a weekly 'virtual' Good News Assembly which has been watched in every classroom on a Friday.
