Barclay Academy enriches our curriculum provision with a comprehensive and inspirational assembly programme to support our students’ personal development and raise their awareness and appreciation of key issues, faiths, events and practices.
Assemblies occur in tutor time in same age year groups to support age appropriate guidance and content. Assemblies can also occur as collective meetings of year groups when appropriate. Assemblies can be extended to create time to allow guest speakers and deliver external programmes.
Assemblies focus habits of success, skills and qualities that support independent learning. Our assembly programme is an important part of our knowledge rich curriculum promoting the culture and ethos of our academy, supporting our students and fostering fundamental British Values, raise social, moral, spiritual and cultural awareness; promote personal, social, health, relationship and sex education.
Assembly takes place in the main hall and more recently as virtual assemblies delivered into classrooms.
