The Education Act 1996 requires the provision of a broadly-based curriculum which:
‘promotes the spiritual, moral cultural, mental and physical development of pupils’; and ‘prepares such pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life’.
In our Academy, Collective Worship is seen as an educational activity which forms part of a structured and coherent curriculum linked to other subjects especially RE and PSHE. It will be of a broadly Christian character, though non-denominational, and take into account the pupils’ needs, ages, aptitudes and faith backgrounds. It will also reflect notable dates and events within the year.
A termly outline programme of assemblies is included.
