The importance of laws and rules are consistently reinforced in the classroom, as well as through school assemblies. Pupils are taught to understand the need for laws - that they are there for individual protection, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Pupils follow a positive behaviour policy and clearly understand the rewards and sanctions that are used. Assemblies and discussions in class focus on recognising right from wrong and visits from the police and fire service help to reinforce these messages.
All pupils enjoyed a visit from PCSO Vanessa Edwardson and her team on Friday 20th May.
They talked about key messages of trust and respect and the importance of working together as a community. Pupils were reminded how their actions and the actions of others have consequences. Rules apply to everyone and are essential for the wellbeing and safety of all.
"Our actions have a reaction, our choices have an impact".
The team talked about their role in the police and how they help to look after our local area. Pupils were keen to learn about how to become a police officer and that continuing their studies is very important in further education if it's a career that interests them in later life.
Our school mission statement ensures that we shape our pupils to become valuable, caring, respectful and considerate members of the local community and wider British society.
Thank you Vanessa, Paul and Paige- we very much enjoyed your visit!
