Our School Rules

By Community, Equality, Letters to Parents, Mental Health, News, Newsletter, Policies, PSHE

This week we have been discussing our school rules:

Be responsible
Be respectful
Be ready to learn

With the children, we have been looking at how these rules fit into good habits in every aspect of civil and academic conduct.

In collective worship, we launched a competition for the children to design a poster that advertises our school rules. If your child would like to take part in the competition, all entries need to be returned to school by Friday 17th September.

Thank you,

 

Mrs Gurner

Diversity

By Collective worship, Community, Equality, House Carmel, House Jericho, House Jordan, House Sinai, PSHE

This half term, we have been learning about diversity. We asked every child in the school to complete a questionnaire to find out what diversity means to them.

This week our house leaders have been super busy interviewing children to prepare a diversity assembly that we are going to show at school tomorrow. House leaders worked so hard to conduct the interviews in a covid safe way.

Here is a trailer for their assembly.

Well done St Alban’s!

Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.


Young Minds have created a useful ‘Supporting Parents Helpfinder’. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child’s mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).

Last week in collective worship, we learnt about Children’s Mental Health Week. To support parents at home we will be posting some resources that you may find useful.

Young Minds have created a useful poster highlighting ways to give support to children when they have angry feelings or outbursts and may help families start a conversation and talk about each other’s feelings.

Key Stage Assembly: Children’s Mental Health Week

By Collective worship, Equality, PSHE

At school, we normally have key stage collective worship on a Thursday. During this time we learn about different religious events and explore special days and weeks.

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and for the next two days I’ll post videos that we were planning to look at in school.

This year’s theme is Express Yourself. How do you express yourself? It is important to express yourself or how you are feeling?

Here is a short film showing how some people express themselves through art.

How to Stay Calm in a Global Pandemic

By Corona - Covid19 Virus, Equality, Special Educational Needs

It seems like the winter lockdown is going on forever and the grey drizzly weather doesn’t help; we hope you are managing to find time to look after yourselves and stay resilient. This morning Rotherham Educational Psychology Team sent school the attached document. It may be helpful in building resilience and it is also suitable for teenagers.

 

Mrs Cooper (SENDCO), has attached a copy to our Special Educational Needs Resource page. We have a wealth of resources on this page that you may find useful.

 

Thank you,
