Wednesday: Bible focus and singing led by Head Teacher


Thursday: Open the Book team from local churches.


Friday: Celebrations


At Hartest one assembly each week follows the theme of Christian values.

Every half term we focus on a different Christian Value. One assembly each week develops different aspects of the value in relation to our everyday lives.
Each Value is introduced through an RE session and whole school assembly. Subsequent assemblies are within Key Stages so that the content is suited to the age of the children. One assembly each week develops different aspects of the value in relation to our everyday lives. The theme culminates in a final whole school assembly. Children and staff nominated by their peers for displaying the value are presented with certificates during this Value Celebration Assembly.

Community Worship within the Village

The local residents join the school to celebrate various Christian festivals at All Saints Church during the year. The school provides displays in the church on the following themes:-

  • Harvest Festival
  • Christmas Service
  • Easter Service

Hartest School is proud to lead the annual Remembrance Service for the village. Local residents join us to remember the fallen members of our village and lay poppies at the memorial. Year 6 pupils read the roll call of the fallen. The Friends of Hartest School provide refreshments after this service with Year 6 pupils acting as hosts.
