The Downley School

“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”


Our assemblies are very important times of the day for coming together, reflecting on our lives and learning about the world around us.

Monday morning assemblies are extra special times when we often think about values, inspirational people, different religions and charity work. We have lots of visitors and speakers to these assemblies and sometimes the pupils present the assemblies.

When we reflect on our learning during these assemblies and afterwards, we are thinking about how we can learn from others to respect the world and to help to make it a better place.

Our assemblies have included:

  • Learning about the beliefs, backgrounds, practices and/or celebrations of different religions and/or cultures: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Black History Month, The History of Blues Music.  
  • Exploring different values such as respect, honesty, courage, compassion, equality etc.
  • The work of charities including Children In Need, Wycombe Homeless, Wycombe foodbank

    Wycombe Homeless Connection, Shelterbox, NSPCC, Comic and Sport Relief, NSPCC.

  • Celebrating national and international focus days or weeks such as World Peace Day, Anti Bullying Week, Book Week etc
