SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning)
All classes take part in a weekly circle time which allows children to discuss and debate a range of personal, social and citizenship issues within a safe and trusting environment. At Grinling Gibbons, we follow the SEAL themes of:
- New beginnings
- Getting on and falling out
- Going for goals
- Good to be me
and children focus on each aspect as appropriate to their age.
We promote anti-bullying week and use our assembly times to reinforce these key messages further.
Lewisham Junior Citizen
Our Year 6 pupils take part in the The Lewisham Junior Citizen Scheme which is a multi-agency event designed especially for year 6 pupils. Partner agencies offer key safety advice, including the London Fire Brigade, Metropolitan Police, St Johns Ambulance, Transport for London, Lewisham Road Safety and Drugs Education specialists, to name but a few. Pupils attend a series of interactive workshops to learn about the many ways that they can stay safe.
