EYFS children do not participate in daily Assembly sessions.  They have a combined Act of Collective Worship each week, as well as ongoing classroom discussions focusing on attitudes, behaviors and cultural celebrations (as appropriate).  They join the rest of the school in a Friday Celebration Assembly.

The daily timetable may change to incorporate trips to Highwoods for Forest Schools, designated PE sessions and independent cooking sessions.  The timetable for the day is always displayed in the classroom, and this is explained to children each morning.
