Through regular discussions with our students, we discuss how they can show respect both in school and out of school. We discuss the many ways in which we can show this and the impact that it can have on how other people feel. It can create a positive impact and develop self esteem and within school creates an excellent learning environment where we can collaborate and have fun. This applies to all of our school community and is modelled to children when interacting with other members of staff in school. Our discussions within school are also a reminder to the students that being respectful to each other also applies when interacting online and via social media, as these interactions still have an impact on people's feelings.
Our students this week have been showing respect and resilience while learning virtually and finding different ways to interact. Students in Year 5 were respectful of the opinions of others during a debate and even though they may have disagreed with each other, they did this in a respectful way whilst sharing their own point of view. Some of our younger students have been learning to remember to use their 'hands up' icon on Teams to ensure that everyone can participate in a discussion and not be talking at the same time whilst learning online.
Our Primary school students, have been designing super heroes to represent our personal learning goals which are currently being developed and brought to life for the students. Our superhero for respect will be Respecful Rebecca and we look forward to being able to share our students designs with you soon.
