The school is pleased to announce that we are now a Stonewall School Champion following our whole school training session this half term.
The training covered case studies and how to support learners with issues around homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying should this ever occur in our school.
There was also a lot of work around robustly challenging and dealing with bullying in general especially in the use of inappropriate language chosen to hurt others.
Stonewall also provided the school with some excellent resources to support this work.
The School would like to thank our trainer, James for the two excellent sessions provided and look forward to continuing to work with Stonewall in the future.
As part of our work this Anti-Bullying Week the school is pleased to be part of a National project with Stonewall.
Our school prides itself on its inclusive ethos and welcoming atmosphere. All staff and Governors truly believe that all children are uniquely made in the image of God and unconditionally loved by God with their own strengths, weaknesses, interests and personality.
The school fully embraces the core Christian values which provide the foundation for all our policy and practice meaning we aim to help children develop in all areas to enable them to become happy, well-rounded young people.
The work the school is undertaking with Stonewall is to further strengthen excellent work the school already carries out in terms of behaviour. This work will ensure that all staff are empowered and well trained to deal with any strand of bullying should it ever occur so that all children can feel safe and secure in our school.
As SIAMS (June 2017) commented: ‘Pupils are safe and feel safe in this deeply caring school.’ and ‘Where bullying does occur pupils speak with conviction about how adults help them.’
Senior staff and Governors had an interesting and stimulating discussion with our trainer, James Robinson, last night and are looking forward to the whole staff training day in January.

As a school it is our duty to ensure that all children in our care are safe and free from discrimination.
The school is pleased to announce that we have been granted an Academy Order by the Department for Education.
We now move onto the next stage of exploration related to forming a multi-academy trust with our partner schools.
We will provide further information in the coming weeks.
