This year anti-bullying week will start with an odd sock day celebrating difference and uniqueness. Then it will be followed by activities in classes based on this years theme of Everyone United Together.
This is the official video for the week.
This is a link to a parent and carers tool kit pack with information about bullying and tips about what to do if you are worried about bullying and how to talk to your children about bullying.
Since returning to school in September following partial school closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been working hard to identify the areas of learning individual pupils may need to catch up on. As always, we are making core subjects the priority - particularly the basic skills of numeracy and literacy. However here at Wombwell Park Street, we are passionate about our broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum offer and feel now more than ever pupils need the opportunity to engage in a wide range of learning opportunities. Children will be accessing the full range of curriculum subjects this year. During the autumn and spring term subject leaders will be prioritising the key learning objectives and vocabulary to be covered in each subject. Class teachers will plan a range of integrated projects and lessons to ensure that all subjects are covered each term although there may be some reduction in frequency and objectives in the foundation subjects to allow pupils to catch up missed learning in the core subjects. However, in order to promote wellbeing the number of Thrive and PSHE sessions will be increased in the autumn term. By no later than summer term 2021 we are planning to be teaching the full range of subjects in their entirety as detailed in our comprehensive subject overviews. If you wish to discuss our current curriculum provision further do not hesitate to contact school and Mrs Longden Deputy Head can provide further information. Should you need any further information relating to provision in PSHE, Mrs Watson will be happy to answer any questions.
