Form Activities and Assemblies 2019/20

Our form activities and assemblies play an integral role in our pupil welfare and development each week, as well as being part of our PSHE programme. Each week the form activity and assembly aim to support the pupils in either their spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional or social development. 

Examples of topics covered are: online safety, social interactions, mental health, enrichment, global citizens and safety whilst out and about. 

Form activities usually have an accompanying powerpoint presentation, these are uploaded to this section for community use. Parents/ carers will be informed of the topic for the week via Parentmail and Twitter and are then able to discuss the issues with their children at home. Additionally, if a pupil is absent they will still be able to engage with the form activity for the week. 

Please note that both assemblies and form activities are subject to change at short notice, depending on the needs of the community.
