Our assembly planner covers all of the topics you may wish to cover in assemblies, with a weekly schedule you can customise. Share it with staff to remind them what's coming up.  

8 September: International Literacy Day 

Get some fresh ideas: see how other schools promote reading for pleasure and encourage everyone in school to be a book-lover. 

26 September: European Day of Languages 

  • Primary schools: use our deep dive questions to help you review your modern foreign languages (MFL) curriculum and spot an opportunity to celebrate this 
  • Secondary schools: use our curriculum audit tool to help you do the same 

Get the conversation going: learn how to talk to pupils about race and racism Build your awareness ... share our reading lists for staff, so your team fully understands the issues ... and help your pupils build theirs: find out how to review and improve diversity in the books you have on offer to pupils Think
