On the final day before the half-term holidays, we were very pleased to welcome Greig Trout from the School of Kindness (https://schoolofkindness.org/) with a familiar face to us and a new recruit to their team- Mrs Tanya Smith. Greig led the whole school with our focus on kindness.
After completing a whole school session in the hall, each pupil had the opportunity to go back to their classrooms and create something which showed kindness to someone important to them- some of you may have seen these when children returned home!
In addition to their work in classes, our kindness ambassadors from across the school had the opportunity to show Mrs Smith and Greig our new kindness bench in the playground. This came about as a suggestion from many of the classes across the school, in response to a challenge to develop strategies and resources that promote kindness. It was fantastic to listen to the children explaining to Mrs Smith and Greig how the bench is being used to help children all across the school, especially those who may be finding break times challenging.
