Assemblies

Bryn Hafren pupils attend two assemblies each week:

Each Year group has a timetabled
slot in a hall for their assemblies.
During tutorial time.
8.35 to 8.50am after registration.

Year 13 have assembly on Wednesday and Year 12
have an assembly on Friday.

Each assembly has a fifteen
minute slot.
It is not possible, given the accommodation, to have daily whole school collective act of worship.
Therefore tutor groups set aside a period of reflection during their tutorial periods when they are not in a House or Year Assembly.

Bryn Hafren Collective Act of Worship aims:

To enable pupils to understand the nature of religion and worship, whether or not they hold specific beliefs themselves.

To broaden and deepen the commitment of those pupils who have a religious conviction, whatever form it may take,
To enable pupils with no religious conviction to understand the nature and demands of religious beliefs,
To encourage in pupils feelings of awe and wonder, elation, respect, gratitude, reverence and appreciation as a prelude to the development of a feeling of spirituality, religious or otherwise
To encourage reflection in pupils, by means of silence, contemplation, meditation and, where appropriate, prayer,
To raise the consciousness of pupils with regard to the local and wider community, the value of life and life values,
To celebrate the achievements of others, both within the school and in the wider community,
To celebrate differences between individuals and between nations.
