Usually, assembly takes place every day at Riverside either in Key Stages or in class. We have an achievement assembly each week where you may be given an award or, if you read out your work you may get your photo included in the Star Folder!

Assembly is a time to embrace the rich diversity of our school and community and to pay respect to others’ families, traditions and festivals. 

We also learn about values, such as British Values, and how they impact on all our lives.

It is a time to reflect on personal values and beliefs, our place in society and the wider world as well as celebrate achievements.


Throughout the year we have some special assemblies including Harvest, Heritage Week and Y3&4 Spring Assembly. We will let you know when these are going ahead as soon as we know!
