Our Senior Staff, Heads of Year, Student Leaders and Tutor Groups deliver a programme of assemblies and themed weeks that incorporate our SMSC, British and Core values.
In addition to the ‘thought for the week’, each topic is themed around current events. We also have a plan in place to share major news events with staff (through the use of our Major incident plan).
Students take part in weekly Literacy and Numeracy activities. Students are expected to watch the news and form staff enable this to happen through new programmes that are suitable for our students, such as http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround.
Dedicated reading time is built into our form time curriculum.
