For each assembly there is a web page with detailed information about its objectives and also a framework sheet (pdf) which can be used as a cue card during the assembly. Each assembly includes optional suggestions for songs, music, reflections / prayers, meaning the content can be adapted to suit your needs - including fulfilling the statutory requirement to offer a daily act of Collective Worship, if you so desire. The aim is to harness a broad range of exciting BBC content - video, audio, image galleries, etc - and offer the greatest possible flexibility regarding its use. We are adding to the collection of content term by term.

March includes St David's Day (1st March), International Women's Day (18th March), Passover (27th March - 4th April), Palm Sunday (28th March) and the festival of Holi (28th / 29th March).

There are also two series of audio content - Something to Think About for KS1 and Together for KS2. In each you'll find stories, a song to join in with, opportunities for reflection and prayer - often led by children themselves - and plenty of other interaction.

Songs for Collective Worship and Assemblies
collection

Both series may be used by schools to fulfil the statutory requirements regarding Collective Worship. The approach of each is to use material from a wide range of cultural sources and faith groups, to ensure that programmes will be relevant to as many listeners as possible. The aim is to provide assemblies which relate to children's own experiences and concerns while exploring a wide range of moral, spiritual and religious issues celebrating the different social, cultural and religious backgrounds of the audience.
