Information about Assemblies

Assemblies are very important at Burton End Primary Academy as they provide children and staff with a time of collective worship and reflection. They are also occasions on which traditional British values are covered implicitly.

Monday - Whole School Assembly

Tuesday  – In Class Reflection

Wednesday – Singing Assembly

Thursday – In Class Reflection

Friday –Celebration Assembly 

Special Assemblies

  • Christmas, Easter and Harvest festival are celebrated each year 
  • There are also assemblies and celebrations in school for key events from other cultures such as Diwali, Chinese New Year and Eid. 
  • A special Christmas Assembly and Carol Service takes place in a local church – three different churches in the town have been visited over the last five years. 

Special Visitors

Children at Burton End enjoy listening to visitors leading assemblies. Over the year we have regular visits from ministers and vicars local to the town who lead assemblies, as well as assemblies led by adults and older children visiting from our partnership Secondary Academy or from the local community, such as the local Librarian and the NSPCC. 

When asking a new visitor to lead an Assembly we follow the advice given by the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education Inclusive School Improvement Service Suffolk - Visiting contributors to RE and Collective Worship Guidance for schools.
