It’s been great to see everybody back in school after half term. I hope students had an enjoyable break – I know many have been on amazing school trips – and have come back refreshed and ready to work hard.
Yesterday we celebrated World Book Day and you can see, from the photos on the website, the effort that was made by both students and staff in dressing up as their favourite characters from literature.
Before half term we delivered assemblies on the theme of respect, what this means and what we expect from our students. It is this respect agenda which will be a priority in school going forwards. So far we have concentrated on the power every individual has to make someone else have a good day; whether with praise, a friendly greeting, positive comments or just good manners. It is very easy to overlook how much we can influence the feelings of others, either in a good or a bad way. Just one negative comment can affect how that person feels about themselves for one hour, one day or even longer.
In the assemblies I was very keen to emphasise that we are all unified by the Myton badge and that we will all be more successful if we show respect and support each other, making a concerted effort to help each other to feel good about ourselves and therefore go on to have a good day.
Thank you for your continued support.
