The Deanes

Assembly Programme

The Deanes enriches our curriculum provision with a comprehensive and inspirational assembly programme to support our students’ personal development and raise their awareness and appreciation of key issues, faiths, events and practices.

Assemblies occur in tutor time in same age year groups to support age appropriate guidance and content. Assemblies can be extended to create time to allow guest speakers and deliver external programmes for example, Road Safety, E-safety, etc.

Our assembly programme is an important part of our Promise#1 and Promise#2 promoting the culture and ethos of our school, supporting our students and fostering fundamental British Values, raise social, moral, spiritual and cultural awareness; promote personal, social, health, relationship and sex education.
