Rule of Law
There are many opportunities to inform and teach students about the importance of rules and laws, for example in learning to play team games and in PE lessons.
Many classes draw up their own class rules at the start of the academic year as a contract, and the school as a whole has a set of expectations which form the basis of our whole school behaviour policy. These are regularly reinforced in the classroom and during assemblies.
We have a close relationship with the local police force support officers, who support with the delivery of key topics such as anti-social behaviour and stranger danger.
The Rights of the Child
Class 3 have spent time looking at the United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Child. We have looked at several case studies and had some very in-depth discussions.
Police and Dog Handler’s Visit
Yesterday we had a police dog handler and a PCSO at school who told us all about the police, what they do and why their jobs are so important. They brought two dogs in; one sniffer dog and the other a chasing dog. The sniffer dog found its toy in a box. Then he let us look in his car and he turned on the sirens and made them do different sounds with a pad on the dashboard. All of the classes got to have a go!
