Year 8: Stop, Speak, Support - Weekly Wellbeing

This week Mr O’Neill, Deputy Head Teacher, officially launched our “Stop, Speak, Support” series of lessons in Year 8.

Weekly Wellbeing - BIS HCMC

“You never deserve to be bullied for who you are.”

At BIS HCMC, our student values, devised by our student council states; “As BIS students we respect our peers, teachers and our environment, we show care for ourselves each other and our community”. It is to fulfil these values that we ensure we make a collective commitment to ensure bullying has no place in our community. 

BIS HCMC Weekly Wellbeing

As part of our Wellbeing Curriculum, our Stop, Speak, Support Programme through our four week series of lessons and associated Tutor Time activities, will focus on raising awareness of what constitutes bullying and what positive decisions students can make if they are either a victim or witness to it. We know that establishing and maintaining positive relationships can be challenging, particularly for our younger students, but through these series of lessons, we aim to further embed the culture that no one deserves to be bullied for who they are. We will also explore the various sources of support available to students who they can go to for advice and guidance should they require.

We continued the theme of ‘Resilience’ with our Year 10 students, as they embark on their IGCSE journey with a visit from Dr Miguel from FMP who spoke on the importance of stress and sleep management.  Many of the messages Dr Miguel communicated are relevant to us all, both adult and student, and the importance of good quality sleep hygiene is a message we will continually reinforce with all year groups as part of our ongoing wellbeing programme. We look forward to a further presentation in the coming weeks on Healthy Nutrition as part of the ‘Resilience” theme.

Our Year 9 students continued to explore the theme of “Who am I?” as they began their ‘Journey of Life’ lessons. The honesty, bravery and courage with which the students approached the activity was fantastic as they shared both positive and challenging life experiences with their peers. We will build on this theme in the remaining weeks before half term.

We continued our programme of staff training as Wellbeing teachers and Tutors met on Tuesday after school. As the Wellbeing Curriculum progresses, it is a great opportunity for staff to come together regularly to further embed the link between lessons and Tutor Time and to identify what is going well, and what we can improve upon, to ensure the best possible lessons for our students. 

It was great to again have the opportunity to speak to many of you at the Year 9 parents Open Day on Monday. I hope you are having an opportunity to discuss the Wellbeing curriculum with your son or daughter and gain a greater understanding of the work they are doing during lessons and in Tutor Time. Should you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me.
