On Thursday we invited all children to wear an item of school uniform turned inside out. This mental health awareness initiative, taught children that sometimes people may look okay on the outside but they may not feel okay on the inside. In assembly we discussed ways that children could help people who may be feeling sad. Children suggested acts of kindness: inviting children to play, smiling, being friendly and helping if someone was upset or hurt. The children suggested giving a child a hug to make them feel better. Please reinforce this message at home.
On Friday we had a number of newly qualified teachers (NQTs) visit our school. This is part of their professional training that we as a school help Southwark to provide. The teachers spent some time in class observing excellent teaching delivered by some of our amazing teachers. I would like to thank Sarah, Annalise, Colleen and John for their contributions. The NQTs always find the day extremely valuable.
Madeleine Danaheur from the Local Authority met with leaders to consider the progress of the children in Monday and then delivered training for teachers.
We hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
