Assemblies are an important part of school life as they bring the community together. We use assemblies to: share the school values; community news; raise awareness of issues at local; national and international levels. They are a way of cementing the Mellor family together and whilst we are a non-denominational school we do hold assemblies with a Christian theme and share the religious beliefs of other faiths.
Friday assembly is our ‘celebration assembly’. If a child wishes to share a trophy, medal, certificate or special event with us, parents are very welcome to join the celebration. This aspect of our work not only gives a better understanding of our children, it also gives the children a chance to speak in front of a large audience.
Headteacher awards are presented on a fortnightly basis to children who have excelled in some way. We celebrate their personal achievements and invite parents to join us for the special moment.
