This week is anti-bullying week. We have been talking about choices and what respect means.
‘Respect is thinking about someone’s feelings, wishes or rights’. We are encouraging children to choose to be a good ‘Upstander’ and uphold the school’s Rights and Responsibilities.
To promote anti-bullying The Dragons Apprentice Team are selling blue wristbands for £1 at the front reception. All money raised is going to their chosen charity. The children who still have a wristband from last year are encouraged to wear their wristbands this week stand up to bullying!
Wormley is continuing to work towards the achievement of the Well-being Award for Schools. You may have noticed some of the things we have been doing in school to promote positive emotional wellbeing and good mental health. Here are a lucky 13 below:
More children and young people than ever before are seeking help with their mental health, but fewer than one in ten find it easy to get the support they need. That’s why on World Mental Health Day, Wednseday 10th October, we are supporting YoungMinds #HelloYellow campaign to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.
This year we will be focusing on resilience and reflection. The children can come to school in their PE kit and the youngest children will receive a Hello Yellow sticker. During the day the children will take part in a range of activities linked to our wellbeing mascots.
Our commitment to emotional wellbeing and positive mental health is so strong that we are currently attempting to a achieve the Wellbeing Award for Schools. Please support us with this by speaking to the children about #HelloYellow Day and asking the school about the various ways we support the children’s wellbeing in school.

A big thank you to Mrs. Penwill for donating a bench to the nurture garden.
The children took charge to position and build the bench themselves (with the help of Mr. Warne)
They are looking forward to learning more outdoors and boosting their positive well-being!
Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter, looking forward to seeing you next Term 🙂
