Assemblies take place every day, but in a different way.
Children learn both formal and informal ways of interacting in assemblies. This equips them for many life experiences outside of school life. Though our assemblies are mainly Christian in nature, no child is expected to respond in a specifically religious way. Parents do have a right to withdraw their child from collective worship, but please discuss this with the head-teacher before you make this decision. I feel sure that we will be able to alleviate your concerns.
