A new development this term has been our Year 7 family lunch. We want to grow our Year 7 cohort into a strong team with a clear set of values and to do this we have been working with them at lunchtimes. We have formalised the lunchtime experience by having them all eat together, sharing conversation and practising how to show excellent manners. We have set them challenges, used leaders from other year groups and provided active leadership opportunities through our link with Stride Active. And the result? They have been absolutely amazing! This week the whole year group has written Christmas cards to local elderly residents as well as collecting gifts to give. Teams from the school will be out visiting our community in the next two weeks, hopefully bringing a little festive cheer! Well done Year 7, we are so proud of you.
