Head of School Update - 19/11/21
Welcome to this weeks update.
Kindness is more important today than it has ever been. The isolation of the last year has underlined how little acts of consideration can break down barriers and brighten the lives of the people around us. This is one of the reasons, that ‘One Kind Word’ has been chosen as the theme of Anti-Bullying Week. To mark the week, the children were invited to wear odd socks, which is such a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique.
Anti-Bullying Week is an annual UK event, held in the third week in November, which aims to raise awareness of bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere, and to highlight ways of preventing and responding to it. At Glenleigh Park this week, we have raised awareness through our whole school assembly, our lessons and our actions. You can see some examples of this learning in the headline photos - the children have created walls of kindness, draw images to represent the Bruno Mars song “Count on Me” and celebrated Elmer’s 5th birthday.
I want to say a huge thank you to you all for your generosity this week. Our book fair raised over £1000. This is a large sum of money, which has enabled us to buy many new and exciting books for the library. Also, thank you to the members of the PTA who kindly gave up their time to support Mr Bristow-Diamond in running the book fair smoothly and safely for the children.
Lastly, I want to say thank you to the staff, everyone has been helping and supporting each other through our staff absence challenges. I am so very proud of our school community and the kindness we all show.
Take care and enjoy the weekend,
Head of school
