Our School Day
Although sometimes our day has to be different, here is an idea of some parts of what our school normal school day looks like.
This means that the school will be officially open for 32 hours and 55 mins in a typical week.
Assemblies happen daily and are a mixture of whole school and class assemblies. Every assembly includes a moment of reflection or short prayer. Our curriculum drivers and our RIDGE school values underpin our topics and themes chosen for our assemblies.
Class Assemblies (Monday)
A programme organised by the class teachers to give all children an opportunity to deliver short presentations to their class each term. This should be in line with the Oracy focus for their year group.
Whole School Assembly (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday)
These assemblies are delivered by teachers on a rota and include topical events, stories, singing and festivals from different religions. In each assembly, the RIDGE Values and British Values which are applicable to the story/topic are discussed and made explicit. Visitors are also invited in to lead assemblies from the local community.
House assemblies happen once or twice a term and are led by the house leaders. They are an opportunity for children from different year groups to come together to support each other and encourage a sense of belonging across the school.
Celebration Assembly (Friday)
This is a whole school assembly and recognises and celebrates achievements including commendations, weekend wonders, attendance, house points, positive behaviours etc. It is also the time to give announcements and reminders about up and coming events.
