Good afternoon Stanley Families
Our school community is shaped and driven by three core sets of values and aspirations:
– Fulfilment and challenge
– Inclusion, diversity and equality
– Ambition and opportunity
We teach the importance of our core values and model how students can exemplify them in their own lives through assemblies, form time activities, and in lessons. To recognise and celebrate our individual and collective achievements we reward students who have excelled in these areas in our end of year reward assemblies. Personal Development lessons provide students with a regular safe space to learn about our values and to develop the right knowledge and tools to navigate the world around them. We have recently revised our Personal Development curriculum and I would like to use this bulletin to update you on some of these changes.
Going forward, we will inform you of the Personal Development topics for each half term. We hope that this generates positive conversations in your home to reinforce the work your child is doing in school.
This week our students have made us extremely proud as they prepared for our annual ‘path of poppies’. This work reminds us of the importance of working together to achieve peace and to give thanks to all those who have and continue to make sacrifices to keep us safe.
