The Russell School

Aim High, Have Courage, Be Kind


An assembly is held everyday, either in the form of phase, year group or whole school setting.

Assemblies reinforce the school values, explore PSHE themes, promote thinking and reasoning skills, debate current affairs and promote multi faith religious festivals.

During the Celebration assembly each Friday, children are awarded Merit certificates in recognition of excellent effort, achievement and attitude towards learning. 

The importance of good attendance is also promoted throughout assemblies and the overall attendance figure for each class is shared each week and tracked on a whole school display. The class with the highest attendance each week looks after the Attendance Mascot!
