As we approach the end of a very busy yet successful term, the BICT team have each nominated one student within the faculty that has really made an impact. These young people have worked hard, demonstrated kindness and shown a real commitment to self-improvement. We are very proud of each of them and we take this opportunity to congratulate them on this award. Each student received a certificate and a badge in class today: Lucas (S1), Ashton (S1), Tess (S3), Robbie (S4), Emma (S6), Ellie (S6), Sophie (S6) and Abby (S6).
We are now about to start block three of our support groups. These support groups are designed to help build confidence, manage anxiety and improve resilience. There are also groups that would help with social and emotional interaction.
Our support groups promote our school values of Fairness, Ambition, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility.
If you think this is something that would be beneficial to your child, please find more information here as well as details on how your child can sign up for the groups. Information is also included in the year group GC pages.
Please make sure you have a discussion with your child before signing them up to any group, so that they are in agreement to signing up.
If you require any more information on this please contact the relevant Pupil Support teacher.
