The Great Get Together 2018

15 May 2018

From Friday 22 to Sunday 24 June, The Great Get Together will be taking place across the country and schools are being urged to take part with a special assembly on Friday 22 June.

The Great Get Together is inspired by MP Jo Cox who was tragically murdered in 2016 and aims to bring together communities, neighbours, pupils and friends to share and celebrate all that we hold in common. Jo spent a lot of time in schools and truly believed in the importance of inspiring younger generations to be good citizens in their communities.

Resources are available to download on the schools page of The Great Get Together website. These include: assembly packs (pre-school, primary, secondary and sixth-form), assembly powerpoints (pre-school, primary, secondary and sixth-form) which include a video on The Great Get Together, and a teacher guidance document written by the PSHE Association on how the assembly fits into the PSHE curriculum.

If your school is able to take part, the team working on The Great Get Together would love to hear how you get on so please share your Get Together on social media on the day using the hashtags #MoreInCommon and #GreatGetTogether.
