I’m pleased to see Humanists UK take this common sense approach to challenge religious based collective worship which is supposed to be followed by schools – Yes I realise that many of them don’t/find a way around it.
Humanists UK say – Schools wanting to deliver inclusive assemblies instead of collective religious worship can now access a groundbreaking new resource featuring hundreds of inclusive assemblies.
Assemblies for All is a brand-new project by Humanists UK providing schools and teachers access to more than 200 high-quality, inclusive assemblies which welcome all pupils regardless of their religious or non-religious background.
The assemblies have been developed by organisations such as Amnesty International, WaterAid, and the BBC, covering themes such as the environment, physical and mental health, arts and culture, and religious and secular holidays.
Teachers can now draw upon hundreds of assemblies that are not acts of collective worship and which do not seek to promote one particular religion or belief, offering truly inclusive and welcoming assemblies to their pupils.
I hope the resource offered above will be of interest to teachers and that they will want to follow it up.
