Introducing the Rights Respecting Ambassadors at Sixpenny Handley First School... 

 This term we have representatives from years 1-4.  Each of us put ourselves forward in a class election and were successful in being voted for as ambassadors. We are very proud of our important role within the school.  We look forward to welcoming two representatives from our Early Years class in the Summer Term.  We will support the Ladybirds in writing a manifesto and putting themselves forward for election.

On Monday 16th November 2020 the whole school were invited to spend the day wearing their 'true colours'.  We launched our Anti Bullying Week work with a whole school sing and sign along to 'True Colours' before spending time exploring the meaning of the words and indeed the song for our theme this week.  The children then shared their voices and added important idead and opinions to our ANto Bullying Policy.  These ideas ill be discussed bgy staff, collated and presented to the Governors.  The Policy sums up our thoughts as a shcool on Bullying and the resources and ideas the childrne feel are needed in order to ensure that we all remain 'United Against Bullying'.

Please enjoy our whole school sing and sign of True Colours.....

 Here are some of our recent projects...

Working in Partnership with our Heath Academy Trust Schools

We are looking forward to the next item on our agenda and to making contact with the RRS Ambassadors at the 5 schools that are also part of our Heath Academy Trust.  We would like to work on projects alongside them and to learn from others and look at future actions together.


REST Jigsaw Programme...supporting resilience in our school

We have recently become a Jigsaw Ambassador School and are enjoying sharing our work with others.  Here is our action plan to show what we would like to develop further in our PSHE and Jigsaw Work.  We have invested in the REST (Resilience and Engagement Scale and Toolkit) and began implementing this in the Autumn Term 2019. We now have weekly 'ROAR' certificates that recognise learners who show resilience throughout their learning.


Shoebox Appeal 

Every year we support the shoe box appeal and December 2019 saw our most impressive contributions to date. As ambassadors we delivered the shoeboxes to a depot in Salisbury and helped with the sorting process.
