60 brilliant things to do while at our school.
Each year group has a list of interesting activities to work towards, with every class having their own 'postcard' to write down when they complete their activities.
We had a special assembly for Anti-Bullying week in November 2022.
Our local PCSO spoke to children about bullying, with a specific focus on social media and online bullying. She was very impressed with our knowledge, honesty and emotional understanding.
Mr Scudder managed the KiVA anti bullying program for our school, and he said it shows how this had a very positive impact on our children.
We started Anti Bullying week with Odd Socks Day!
The focus this year is online bullying - we have lots more information about online safety here:
We have several student advocacy groups including the School Council, our Mental Health Ambassadors, and our School Ethos Council with Mr Scudder. Members wear their badges in school so others can identify who their representatives are.
Did you know?
The plastic and metal parts of the badges we make in school can be separated for recycling, and we use an 'eco' seal which is biodegradable.
