At West Wycombe School we encourage all our children to feel part of the community; not just the school, but the wider local, national and world community. Assemblies provide the children and staff with the opportunity to explore our role within these communities and to celebrate the achievements of individuals and groups within the school. Sometimes, speakers will be invited to the school to address the children on a particular subject. Assemblies also provide the forum for children to discuss spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues.
Assemblies take three times a week. Typical weekly assemblies are as follows:
Our Celebration Assembly, at which individual achievements are announced
Assemblies are the heart of our school; a time where we come together and celebrate each other and our values.
Assembly Highlights- 2023/ 24
We looked at what it means to be British and what British Values are.
Today we looked at Black History Month and important Black figures who have fought for equality and inspired generations.
Year 4 delivered an amazing Class Assembly on Black History Month!
Today we looked at Allergy Awareness. We explored what it's like to have an allergy and discussed how to identify someone suffering from an allergic reaction.
This week we delivered an assembly on 'Pantosaurus'- this is the NSPCC guidance for explaining to children about inappropriate touching and the importance of consent. Information from the NSPCC: Developed in consultation with children, parents, carers and teachers, Talk PANTS is here to help children understand their body belongs to them, and they should tell a safe adult they trust if anything makes them feel upset or worried.
If you'd like to discuss this, please let us know.
Anti Bullying Week Assembly
We take bullying very seriously at West Wycombe School- we kicked off Anti Bullying Week with a thorough exploration of what bullying is and how to act if you are being bullied or witness bullying.
Today we explored the 5 core British Values:
- Rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect
- Tolerance of those with difference faiths/ beliefs
Today we looked at how to identify hazards and how to stay safe at home and at school.
Today we looked at the importance of sleep and what happens if we don't get enough of it. We even looked at what position you sleep in and what that says about you- interesting!
