At Heworth Grange, we believe the key principle to everything we do in school is to create excellent, mutually positive relationships between all within our community. Where students, staff, parents, and other members of our school community feel safe and confident. This is underpinned by our four core values:
- No Islands
- High Expectations
- Every Child, No Expectations
- Engaging Learning.
Our aims are:
· To provide a safe and secure environment for all children in our care.
· To create a happy atmosphere in which students, parents, and staff work together for the welfare of the students.
· Everyone is mutually valued and respected regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, beliefs, or ability.
· To encourage children to adopt values in order to develop a sense of self-discipline and to take responsibility for their own actions for themselves now and throughout their lives.
Our full anti bully policy can be found here:
Whole school events to occur that encourage tolerance and respect and reward the types of behaviour we want our students to demonstrate.
BE KIND WEEK
All school to be guardian angels. Each member of Heworth Grange to have a ‘Be Kind’ postcard who will at some point during the week hand to another person in school — no explanation necessary.
All staff are to receive five golden tickets that they can give to any student over the course of the week for any examples of respect, holding door, saying thank you, etc.
Each golden ticket has to be handed to the relevant head of year and points are accumulated — one point per ticket, unless a double day is announced! A competition between year groups, with a prize for the winning year.
ANTI BULLYING TRANSITION EVENT
The anti-bullying ambassadors will launch ‘This is our safe school’ to students in Year 6 who are starting in September 2021.
The ABA’s will invite the primary students into HG (or virtually) and talk about what the expectations are etc — through fun activities.
ABA’s will visit feeder primary schools to answer questions about their school, from the student perspective or invite to a Q&A session.
