Broughton Primary is a non-denominational school which has a large and diverse school community. We welcome many different faiths and cultures to our school. We have links with Broughton St Mary’s church and the minister will visit the school from time to time. We regularly use the church as a venue for our Christmas celebrations.
Time for Reflection was previously known as Religious Observance within a school. At the heart of TfR is to develop every learner as an individual. This means helping them to grow and develop their own sense of themselves, to be confident in expressing their own beliefs and values, and to develop an understanding of and empathy towards others. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Time for Reflection.
We hold weekly assemblies on a Monday and they are led by Mrs O’Rourke and the school leadership team. They focus on themes which are relevant to the school values, Rights Respecting Schools and the school calendar. We will also have additional whole school events throughout the year where we may invite guests eg, school minister, representative from the local mosque or the local foodbank.
Proposed dates for Time for Reflection are:-
Friday 14th October – Harvest Celebration
Monday 7th November – Remembrance Assembly
Friday 16th December – Christmas Celebration P1-3 in church
Wednesday 21st December – Christmas Celebrations P4-7 in church
Monday 27th March – Easter Celebration
