We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. In so doing we help develop their sense of self-worth. We teach how society is organised and governed. We ensure they experience the process of democracy in school through the School Council. We teach them about rights and responsibilities. They learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse multicultural society. We support them in understanding and managing their own emotions and mental health. We equip pupils, regardless of age or ability, with the skills and knowledge to set healthy boundaries, navigate the world effectively and as independently as possible, and know where and when to seek appropriate support.
