Behaviour in School

Dear Parents and Carers


We have had a few new children join us, since the start to term, and I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on the children's behaviour in our school, which is excellent! The children are polite and kind to each other and this has shown when welcoming the newer children. Children tell us they feel safe in school and to tell an adult if they are worried (sometimes they need reminding about this and we give the children lots of opportunities to talk).


In our assemblies, the children listen and are engaged. They enjoy coming together to listen to a story or information about famous people in history, scientists, people who are important now. We also talk about our 6 BADGER values and link to them whenever we can. We take assemblies as an opportunity to reflect on the 4 British Values of Democracy, Rule of Law,  Respect and Tolerance and Individual Liberty at a level young children can understand.


This week's assemblies reflect on why we have a Remembrance day every year. We will also be learning about 'Children in Need' day which is on 19th November. At home your children may talk abut some of the things we are discussing, as they try to make sense of the world around them. They will be forming their own ideas, and learning to develop their own personal values in life.


I am going to put a special mention in our 'Special Mentions' book this week about our wonderful caring children and their superb behaviour, that makes our school such a special place to learn in and I wanted to share this with you all. This doesn't happen by accident and thank you for continuing to strengthen our values at home too.


Kind regards


Mrs Riches
