Registration and Assembly

The children do their early morning work whilst their class teacher takes the attendance register. The attendance of every child attending school each morning and afternoon is recorded in a special book.

The teacher reads out each child’s name in turn. On hearing his/her name, the child replies 'yes Mrs. (teacher's name)' and the teacher notes down in the book whether the child is in school or not.

Sometimes the children will answer their teacher in a different language eg. French or German.
Students primary schools are usually taught by the same teacher for all subjects.

At 9:10 am the children go to assembly in our main hall. They sit on the floor in rows with the youngest children at the front and the older children at the back. As the children enter the hall they listen quietly to the music playing. Each week has a different musical theme and the children are asked to listen out for particular things.

What happens in an Assembly?
In our assemblies the children listen to a story, sing a song and pray. The story is either taken from the Christian Bible or is a story with a moral. The songs we sing are particularly chosen with the children in mind. Some of our songs are sung with the English sign language.

To cater for the children of different faiths, some of our assemblies do not have a Christian theme. These assemblies are a time for us to gather together to celebrate the achievements of our children and of the school as a whole.

Every parent has the right to withdraw their child from a school assembly.
