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 pupils and staff.

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 pupil engagement with the theme, topics or values explored though interactive activities like ‘Think Pair Share’.

Ideas for reflection

Give pupils ideas to think about through the school week by bringing themes and values that encourage SMSC development into your classroom 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).
