What is School Assembly For?
How many teachers or headteachers ask themselves this question?

Is it a "God Slot"?
Is it for preserving rituals from the past?
Is it for demonstrating "I'm in charge round here"?

Given that School Assemblies run every day in the majority of UK schools, the amount of time students and teachers spend in School Assemblies is huge.

Given that School Assemblies generally begin the school day, they set the tone for that day.
Is the tone that is set for students along the lines of:
 "We don't have to listen to that person at the front? What are they talking about, none of it is relevant to me?"

Or is it something different? Does your School Assembly intend to impart some learning? After all, schools are all about learning?

What are School Assemblies for? What are they about? What should they be about?

What do you think?
