The Big Assembly

During Children’s Mental Health Week (6 – 12 February), we encouraged schools across the UK to share our call to spread a little kindness with their pupils, families and staff.

For the first time ever, all schools had the exciting opportunity to be part of Place2Be's Big Assembly, attended by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and supported by Heads Together.

  • A choir performance
  • A presentation of a ‘Kindness Cup’* to one pupil who has demonstrated exceptional kindness in their school community

 

About The Big Assembly
The Big Assembly took place at Mitchell Brook Primary School on Monday 6th February.

Schools can use The Big Assembly video as a whole, select the most relevant sections, or mix and match with our other downloadable resources for primary and secondary schools, available on our Schools page.

The Assembly was delivered to pupils aged 7-11 (KS2), but can be adapted for older or younger pupils.

 

*Schools may wish to present their own award to a pupil who has shown outstanding kindness as part of Children’s Mental Health Week.
