The daily act of Collective Worship is a legal requirement in all schools. In a Church of England School it should always be Christian worship and it should reflect the traditions of the Church of England, developing learners’ understanding of Anglican traditions and practice.
At Holy Trinity Junior School, assembly makes a major contribution to upholding the religious character and Christian distinctiveness of our church school. It is central to the life of the school. Assemblies are often lively and amusing, as well as calm and reflective.
We also regard assembly as an opportunity to celebrate all aspects of school life.
We regard it as a special time and expect children to behave in an appropriate way. We ask them to be thoughtful, to listen carefully, to join in the singing. All children’s views are welcomed in participation.
Christmas, Easter, Harvest or Remembrance and the Leavers’ Services are held at Holy Trinity Church in Wallington. Year 3 lead the Christmas service, Year 4 lead the Easter service, Year 5 lead the Harvest or Remembrance service, and Year 6 lead the Leavers’ service.
There are half termly themes on Mondays; a wide variety of subjects on Tuesdays, singing on Wednesdays, the local ministers on Thursdays and a class or news assembly on a Friday.
When there is a class assembly families are invited to join us.
