Working together to care for each other
The way in which we expect adults and children to care for each other is an important aspect of our school values and permeates our school organisation, curriculum and policies.
In addition to this practical structures are in place to teach these skills that lead to us becoming a school team that works together to care for each other.
When children start school they are given a Year 6 buddy who supports them at breaktimes and at lunchtimes with those practical aspects of the day that can be quite challenging when you are 4 years old.
Our Year 6 children are all trained mediators. This enables them to support children to sustain and develop friendships and also develops skills that are useful as they move onto secondary school.
The caring aspect of school life is recognised through our ‘Catch ‘em Caring’ Awards.
