We are building a school ethos and climate that enables our pupils to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence, to distinguish right from wrong, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and to understand how they can contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
We aim to support pupils to be excited and aware about living in a community that is full of diversity and difference.
Since the start of this year, we introduced the resource,'No Outsiders in Our School' and have been spending time reading lovely books that send out important and powerful messages. These messages remind us of how to be fair, respectful and accepting of others.
We gathered as a school to share these messages through drama, Art work and poetry.
"We are not born with prejudice, we learn it. Our diversity is a gift- a wonderful blessing from God. Let us celebrate it"
A powerful message was shared today about the importance of being kind and true to yourself. Classes presented role play scenarios, shared friendship keys, a tapestry of friendship and poems/stories.
We talked about how words can hurt and leave someone feeling lonely, upset and weak.
It is very true to say that one kind word can brighten someone's day and as a school, that's what we intend to.
