At Marshside we have an assembly every day.
This is a whole school assembly led by the Headteacher, Mrs. Hall. These assemblies are linked to our SEAL theme for the half-term.

The assemblies can have a religious theme and can include celebrations of the major festivals of different faiths – Christianity; Judaism; Islam; Hindu; Buddhism. At other times they may focus on a local, national or international theme e.g. Henry Segrave Land Speed Record; Queen’s Golden Jubilee; Olympics.
At this assembly Mrs. Hall informs the children of the Golden Value and Learning Certificate focus for the week that the teachers will be looking for.
This whole school assembly is led by Mrs. McKenna, our Deputy Headteacher. The focus for these assemblies links to the Rights Respecting School programme and British values.
The Rights Respecting School initiative started in 2006 and is based on the principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation.
This is the day we have our music assembly, again led by teaching staff on a rota basis. The assembly is split into KS1 and KS2. Songs are sung in relation to upcoming events. They include songs relating to various religious festivals e.g. Harvest and the Christmas nativity. We also include songs that link with Anti-bullying week, Eco-songs and songs from other cultures.
These whole school assemblies are led by the class teachers on a rota basis. They follow the SEAL theme for the half-term.
Celebration is the focus of this whole school assembly. This assembly is led by Mrs. Hall, the Headteacher. Each teacher nominates a child for the Golden Child certificate and the Learning certificate (introduced on Monday). Parents are invited to share in this assembly. We also take the opportunity to recognise children’s achievements beyond school, e.g. gymnastics, football, music. We also take time to celebrate birthdays. Sometimes members of the Parents and Friend Association come to announce winners of competitions they have run.
Each class does one assembly during the year. Parents are invited in to see the assembly, which is generally based on what they children have been learning about in class. Y6 children have a special leavers assembly in July.
Themes that are covered every year.
