Loving All Our Neighbours


Welcome to our School Assemblies page.  From here, you can view the material we share with the children as part of our assemblies, with sub-pages leading to the different topic areas. 


During our school assemblies, children are invited to engage in a collective act of worship.  The typical wording of our invitation is:


“I would like to invite you all to listen to the following words. Some of you may wish to join in prayerfully, according to your own traditions; others might want to reflect quietly about what the words mean to them. If you wish to make them your own prayer, you can join me by saying ‘amen’ at the end.”


We often begin and end assemblies with singing and we use sub-titled videos to encourage the children to join in. Below are some "general" videos, used throughout the year, with others on the sub-pages linked below:

During the Autumn Term 2017, the Diocese of Oxford conducted a Visioning Day with the school staff and governors.  Amongst the things we looked at were the values of the school and how they could be represented in single words. A range of words were identified and, just before we broke up for the Christmas 2017 holidays, this list was put to the children across the school and they reduced the list to a final six - one value becoming the theme for each term - which the children felt most represented our school:

Our Vision: Loving All Our Neighbours

John 13:34

'A new commandment I give you: Love one another.

As I have loved you, so you must love one another.'

Jesus himself helped people understand his new commandment by telling the Parable of the Good Samaritan.
