Our Assemblies

Every week, we have a whole school assembly that promotes our pupil's social and cultural understanding, character education, and celebrates our achievements throughout the year.

Many different topics and issues have been presented. Just a few, for example, have included: Positive resolutions, Martin Luther King, Poetry workshop, Holocaust Memorial, Valuing differences, the General Election, and International Women's Day.

The assemblies have also treated our pupils and staff to performances of music, literature, and drama, such as YPDAAT and St Helens College's drama involving the dangers of drug use. But not all assemblies have such serious subject matter! Our KS2 pupils often treat us to uplifting muscal performances and we also have motivational visits, such as the freestyle footballer during our National Sports Week assembly.

At the end of every term, we hold a special Achievement Assembly, during which we celebrate all the great things that happen in Penkford and recognise individual and group success with awards and prizes. It's a great opportunity to reflect on the acomplishments of the past term, and look forward to the challenges of the next!
