Guidance is mostly delivered to Year 7 form classes by their form teachers. It covers relevant topics such as Safeguarding, Radicalisation & Extremism, Personal Safety & Risk Taking, Revision Strategies, Bullying & Cyberbullying, Peer Pressure & Relationships, Mind Moose and LORIC. In addition we have an outside speaker whom delivers a session on Taking Risks.
Our LORIC lessons allow pupils to realise personal targets. Pupils begin as apprentices in Year 7 with a view to completing this course by the end of Year 8. Each pupil selects two activities from each of the five attributes; these being Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication. On successful completion pupils will receive a certificate and progress onto the graduate level.
Mind Moose is an online platform to allow pupils to develop good mental wellbeing and allows for early intervention for any concerns.
