Here at Downsell, we believe that assemblies are a time for our children to come together to learn, celebrate and reflect on a particular subject matter or theme. 

As part of our continuing drive to ensure that our vision and the areas of SMSC is woven throughout all aspects of our school life, we have a structured approach to the planning of our assemblies. 

The following table details the theme of each assembly

Theme of the week Chosen word for the week is linked to our school vision, values and ethos
Class teachers are able to personalise these assembly slots to meet the needs of their class when discussing the word / theme of the week
Where possible the theme is linked to a poem, shared with the class.
British Values
Pupil Voice
These assemblies are done on a rota:
British Values – the British Values are discussed together as a class and a shared understanding of what it means is developed.
Pupil Voice – Digital leaders, school council, Rights Respecting Ambassadors, playground monitors etc – this is an opportunity for these school leaders to feedback to their class during this time.
Pupil voice questionnaires on issues such as safeguarding are also allocated time during these assembly slots. 
Wellbeing This assembly slot is for children to discuss wellbeing issues including bullying, online safety and ways to support positive mental health.
Class chosen Pupils decide what is discussed during the class chosen assembly. Class teachers can choose how they want this to be done.
These assemblies may discuss class chosen topics or an opportunity for children to share news etc.
