Assemblies are an essential element in the life of any school. New Park upholds its statutory responsibility to hold a daily act of worship which is mainly Christian in nature and through which pupils are taught high moral values, concern for others and respect for one's neighbour. On other occasions children are also educated about a variety of cultures and world religions and are taught to show respect for these.
During normal lessons, there will be many occasions when similar philosophies of care and consideration are promoted.
Staff utilise assembly time to speak to the whole school as a collective group or in key stages on matters which are relevant to their age, interests and understanding.
Parents may ask for their child/ren to be excused from an assembly or RE lesson by request to the Head Teacher.
