In our daily assemblies, we come together to explore our school values and how these can help us in our lives.
Sometimes, we relate our values to some of the aspirational people who are displayed around our hall. These include Barak Obama, Martin Luther King, Elle Simmonds, Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole, Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough. We explore their lives and achievements, and what we can learn from them. We aim for these people - our heroes - to represent all walks of life and demonstrate the achievements of a diverse group of people.
Throughout the year, we also use our assemblies to learn about, celebrate and mark a broad range of cultural events. These include festivals and events from a range of religions, as well as other local, national and global events. We also explore a calendar of events relating to wellbeing and keeping safe, such as Safer Internet Day, Anti-Bullying Week and Children's Mental Health Day.
On Friday, we always celebrate children's achievements in a special celebration assembly. Children from each class are nominated for a Team Tollerton Class Captain Award, based on how well they have exemplified our school values. One child from the school receives a Team Tollerton School Captain Award. which is awarded by the Headteacher in recognition of outstanding exemplification of our values. Teachers also award 'Of The Week' certificates to children in their class, celebrating achievements from across the full range of curriculum subjects. Each week, House Points that have been accumulated during the week are collated, and the current standings are shared.
