As you may have seen in the media, we have partnered with Oak National Academy to deliver what could be the country’s largest ever assembly tomorrow morning at 10.00am.
The first national assembly features input from Matt Hood, Headteacher of Oak National Academy, Gavin Williamson, and then the main speaker – the Archbishop of Canterbury, speaking on the theme of ‘Hope’. We are also thrilled that students from Sneinton Church of England Primary School in Nottingham and St Mary Redcliffe & Temple School in Bristol are leading elements of the assembly too – and they are quite marvellous as you will see!
The assembly is being streamed live at 10.00am on the TES website - so please log on and join us for 10 inspirational minutes and to be part of the country’s largest ever assembly! Please share with your teams and students and encourage as many people as possible to join for this!

This will then lead to a weekly programme of content that we are developing for primary and secondary schools called Faith at Home, which will be weekly 10-12 minute packages of video content to support collective worship, coming out every Thursday from 7th May. I will be interviewing Paul Butler, Bishop of Durham for Monday’s podcast to hear more about this exciting new campaign for the Church of England nationally.
As many of you will know from your Dioceses, we are launching this campaign tomorrow in 2 repeat webinars to which you are very welcome if you would like to find out more about how your school can get involved:
Session A - 30 April 11.30-1.00 - join in here
Session B – 30 April 1.30-3.00 - join in here
We hope you are able to join us!
