School should be a place where children feel safe and happy. At St Saviour’s, we strongly believe in creating an environment where children are taught to be kind, considerate and, most importantly, respectful towards others.
Anti Bullying Day gave as another opportunity to reinforce our values. As a school, we focused on the theme of respect. Each class thought of ways that we can show respect not only to to others but to ourselves as well. We also wore odd socks to celebrate our differences!
In RE, we thought of big questions such as ‘How can we show respect to everyone?’ Year One looked at the ‘Golden Rule’ which is in Matthew, Chapter 7:12. It reads:
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.“
This is a very clear message to encourage children to treat people how you would like to be treated.
