Year 8 have looked at ‘rights and responsibilities’ and given their opinion on some of the set age limits for getting a driving licence or a free education. ‘Shout outs’ to Charlotte R and Olivia P in 8J.
Year 9 have been looking at the reasons why people run away and how to prevent this from happening and seek support. Shout outs to Anna K and Freya H, 9P.
Years 10 and 11 have now started their Life Skills course again. They each have 2 weeks to complete a 20 – 30- minute activity and submit a short forms quiz. After only going live on Tuesday, an impressive 71 students in Year 10 and 48 students in Year 11 less than 24 hours later, had already completed the forms quiz.
Year 10 have been given some information to read on drug classification, the law and the consequences. There is a 10 question forms quiz to complete to show understanding and provide evidence that students know where to access support if they need it. Parents can also access support on the topic on drugs using these resources and via the following link:
Year 11 are visiting the ‘thinkUknow’ website and accessing the information on the pressures of being online, including ways to say no and access support. Again, there is a forms quiz to show if a student understands and how to seek advice and support on these pressures. This website also contains a parents homepage.
