Collective Worship is part of Hillside Avenue’s contribution to promoting the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of every child. All pupils join in with our daily assemblies. The school complies with the legal requirements as set out in the 1988 Education Reform Act and more details can be gathered from the Headteacher.
Withdrawal from Collective Worship:
Collective Worship is intended to be meaningful and relevant for all pupils and staff, for those with a faith background and those with none. It is therefore hoped that few parents will feel that they have to remove their child from Collective Worship, as this breaks the unity of the experience of school.
Parents do have the right to remove their child from Collective Worship. Those wishing to exercise this right should contact the Headteacher. Arrangements for those withdrawn from Collective Worship are held within Year Group/class planning.
