Safeguarding Council 2022-2023
Hello and welcome to our Safeguarding Council page. We are a group of students from year 1 to year 6 who feel that everyone has the right to feel safe at home, school, in the community and online.
We have created our own moto about staying safe:
S – Speak out and stay safe
T – Talk to a trusted adult
A – Always use equipment safely
Y - Your body belongs to you
S – SMART internet use
A – Always be kind
F - Follow the rules
E – Environment
We want to share our staying safe message to everyone at school so we have created a display and will be running worships about different aspects of our safety.
Let’s Connect Big Read – Friday 10th February
A massive well done to the Safe Guarding Council for organising their first Well Being event, It was a huge success and we were thrilled that so many of parents and grandparents were able to join us to connect over a good book. The council made sure that every vistor on site was safely checked in and knew the fire drill proceedures before enjoying reading. The council chose a selction of fiction and non-fiction books, made recommendations of their faviourites and promoted our RSE lending library and reading rewards.
How does reading support mental health and well being?
Books are a fantastic way to developing empathy. When we dive into a book and new world we develop empathy as we experience the lives of other characters and can identify with how they are feeling. Children can then use this understanding to empathise in the real world with other people. Through this, children will gain a greater understanding of emotions, which can help them understand their own emotions and those of others.
Reading with a child on a regular basis, will undoubtedly develop a stronger relationship with them. Reading provides parents with an opportunity to have a regular and shared event that both parent and child can look forward to. Furthermore, it provides children with feelings of attention, love, and reassurance which is key for nurturing and wellbeing.
