Assemblies and Collective Worship
In England and Wales, the School Standards and Framework Act 1988 states that all pupils in schools must take part in a daily act of collective worship. The Act also states that the majority of these acts of collective worship are required to be ‘wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character’
Schools can request a Determination to Change the Arrangements for Collective Worship because the faith demographic of the pupils makes it inappropriate for collective worship to be ‘broadly Christian’. If such a request is approved by SACRE, a Determination to Change the Arrangements for Collective Worship is granted which then applies for five years from the date of approval.
Following consultation with parents and governors, Broadfield Community Primary School has been granted Determination.
