Welcome to Comberton Primary School and Nursery. Please contact the school office for a personalised tour of our wonderful school!


We organise our assemblies so that children get a range of opportunities to explore various themes and ideas that are relevant to their lives.  In designing assemblies we promote and explore:

  • School values and rules
  • British values
  • Safeguarding themes
  • Christian Values
  • Wider religious festivals and cultural traditions (eg Eid, Chinese New Year)
  • National initiatives (eg Anti -bullying week, online safety week
  • Charitable causes (eg Comic Relief, Air Ambulance, Children in Need)
  • Topical issues (eg current news events)
  • National events (eg King's Coronation, Remembrance)
  • Reading for pleasure
  • Singing for pleasure
  • Celebration of achievements



We have regular visitors to deliver our assemblies:

  • Peter Cooper (a local charity leader and school governor) leads fortnightly assemblies which explore Christian values through the medium of magic! 
  • Open the Book (local Church group) lead monthly assemblies exploring Christian values through re-enacting bible stories.


We also have occasional visitors:

  • Severn Trent explore water and sustainability
  • HSBC explore financial management
  • NSPCC virtual assemblies promote healthy relationships


Composer of the Week

To enhance our music curriculum and broaden children's exposure to a range of musical genres, we have a composer of the week.  This music is played on entry to assembly. 


Singing Assemblies

We hold weekly singing assemblies where the children learn a range of hymns and non-religious songs to promote a sense of belonging and togetherness.  This gives further opportunities to explore both school and Christian values through song. 


Reading Assemblies

We have regular reading assemblies which aim to provide another opportunity for children to be exposed to range of text types and authors and simply enjoy great books!  


Subject Specific Assemblies

Subject Leaders often deliver assemblies linked specifically to their curriculum area as an opportunity to value and promote each subject for it's own worth. 


Celebration Assemblies

We hold weekly celebration assemblies where each teacher will have selected 2 children to award with a certificate for an element of their learning that week that has really shone.  This is often linked to our school values.  We celebrate the children's birthdays and also award the Attendance Cup to the class with the highest attendance for the week.  There is a real sense of pride in these assemblies.
