Usually, assembly takes place every day at Riverside. We have a whole school assembly every Monday morning. We also have an achievement assembly each week where you may be given an award!

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

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

Unfortunately we cannot have assemblies at the minute due to current restrictions – but we can share stories in class that have the same themes, such as kindness, caring as well as equality and diversity – so until we can all meet up again we will have to demonstrate our values, work together and show that we know and care through our actions and our empathy. 

Some of our previous themes are here:


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