The following feedback was given to Ten Ten by subscribing schools in July 2017.
Ten Ten is finally a high-quality, well thought-out, well-prepared resource that allows you to provide consistent, structured and focused assemblies for all children of all ages. It has been invaluable to us as a school and helped staff to bring more children into the action and into the learning. We even made it a part of teacher’s appraisal this year – we value it that much.

Ten Ten Resources… 10 out of 10! We do not simply ‘subscribe’ to Ten Ten Resources…we ‘invest’ in them. All members of our school community (children, staff and parents alike) love the wealth of materials that are available to use for a wide variety of purposes. The fact that these materials are updated on a weekly basis and are so easy to access make them truly invaluable. I would whole-heartedly recommend this wonderful resource to all concerned…a real God-send!
Tony Gorton, Headteacher, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception & St Joseph’s, Hertfordshire
We are delighted to use the Ten Ten Resources in our collective worship. The videos and easy to follow assembly plans have enhanced the ability for children leading acts of collective worship.
David Harris, RE Coordinator, Abbey School, Birmingham
Ten Ten is a very useful, carefully planned and easy-to-use resource. It comes with resources such as PowerPoints and music which really assists the delivery of class collective worship. I would be lost without it!
Leanne Dixon, Class teacher, Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School, Blackpool
Many of our new teachers (and non-Catholic teachers) find Ten Ten an invaluable resource, providing a core framework for daily class worship. More experienced teachers use it too: the resources are easy to use and very child-friendly; they can be easily adapted too. Children themselves can take the lead in delivering the worship sessions. There is a great mix of music, prayers, videos, reflections etc. – something to appeal to everyone. We are very pleased that it follows the scripture readings of the Church Year so accurately.
Catherine Crowley, RE Coordinator, St Theresa’s Catholic Primary School, Leeds
The children in my class love the daily reflections and prayers; the music and visuals help them to think about moral and social issues they can relate to. Thank you.
Carla Dodsworth, Class teacher, Our Lady of Ransom Catholic Primary School, Essex
As a headteacher I have enjoyed using the materials for our assemblies as they have brought new ideas into school and, after many years of preparing assemblies, it’s always good to have up to date ideas. My teachers in KS1 commented that they have really enjoyed using the daily prayers calling it ‘Time to Talk to God’. The children love the visual stimulus and especially enjoyed the series about the body as they could stand up and join in. The teachers find the overview and script really helpful and the children are more engaged during prayer time. The range of topics covered have been interesting and encouraged the children to reflect and pray on a wider variety of ideas.
Chris Curtis, Headteacher, St Antony’s Catholic Primary School, Woodford Green
Ten Ten Resources is fantastic. The weekly assembly follows Sunday’s Gospel and includes all the resources necessary to deliver the assembly – notes, scripts, PowerPoint presentations and music! The only thing you have to do is download it! Everything is made with the children in mind and is relevant to them. Similarly, the classroom prayers follow on from the weekly theme and have simple reflections for the children to use each day of the week. It is so easy to use and really complements our R.E. curriculum.
Annette Kerry, EYFS Coordinator, St Clare’s Catholic Primary School, Leicester
I love using the Ten Ten resources. The activities and reflections are really engaging for the children and lead the children on their own spiritual journey. I would thoroughly recommend this resource to other teachers.
Hollie Westmore, Class teacher, St Albans Catholic Primary School, Hornchurch
The resources are excellent and varied, and can often be used across the primary age range. They have introduced us to new songs and new charities and causes across the year. Brilliant.
Mary Frain, Headteacher, St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School, Hartlepool
The resources that Ten Ten provide are excellent. They engage the children through vibrant, colourful and easy to understand images and videos. The children enjoy the Gospel assemblies and leave with a clear understanding of how as Catholics they should fulfill the Gospel mission.
Marcella Kelliher-Cumiskey, St John XXIII Catholic Primary School, London
The impact of the Ten Ten resources in our school is that they have improved teachers subject knowledge, provided a variety of ways on how to explore the Sunday Gospel and the daily teachings have fully engaged the pupils.
