Assembly ideas and out-of-the-box sessions for KS1 and KS2 collective worship

Teachers and kids love Big Start Assemblies! Combining value-based themes with stories from the Bible, the assemblies are easy to plan and great fun for KS1 and KS2 children. We give you everything you need: presentations, videos, songs, music, scripts and a whole lot more. It’s a great way to get engaging assembly ideas that make preparation easy!

The collective worship sessions meet Ofsted and SIAMS requirements and encourage strong all round development with important topics including friendship, anti-bullying, diversity, forgiveness and many more.



Collective Worship can be fun and engaging. Big Start’s energetic and creative approach adds songs and laughter to make assemblies a highlight of the day for children.

Multimedia rich

Packed full of resources like videos, animations, songs, pictures and backing tracks, making it simple to engage with today's children.


All assemblies encourage children engagement with the theme, topics or values explored though interactive activities like ‘Think Pair Share’.

Ideas for reflection

Give children ideas to think about through the week by bringing themes and values that encourage SMSC development into your reflection time.

Values based

All assemblies and themes build around Christian values like courage, honesty and friendship, meeting SIAMS and Ofsted guidelines on Collective Worship.


Scripts and presentations are fully editable to allow you to make the content your own... or use it straight out of the box (box not included).

Sung Worship

Big Start draws from a huge catalogue of new songs. All our songs have lyric videos, backing tracks and sheet music available, helping to bring great children’s worship songs into your schools, homes and churches!


Assemblies are based around eight different module types making planning super easy, yet keeping every assembly fresh and different.

Community led

We work with teachers, educational specialists and leaders of Collective Worship; creating around 40 new assemblies a year to ensure you have fresh content.


Big Start Assemblies is so valuable to us because it allows us to do something a little different.
