The children in all year groups were recently involved in a school friendship survey. As you may be aware our 'Friendship Week' was in the Autumn Term and continuing on from this we have been promoting positive relationships across the school.
As part of this ongoing initiative the children's data was collected and analysed. Reception children and Class 1 spoke about friendships and their data was collected through circle time and verbal discussions and Classes 2-6 completed a written response.
The following is a summary of our findings:
- A very high percentage of pupils felt safe in the classroom, on the playground and going to and from school.
- The majority of pupils never spend playtimes alone and the ones that indicated occasionally they did have been spoken to individually and issues addressed in a positive and nurturing way.
As part of our British Values in school we always listen to each other's opinions. Our children are made aware of our differences, tolerating others and being kind and caring towards each other.
We have many visitors in our school each week for a variety of reasons ( Teaching and Learning consultants, prospective parents, volunteers, outside agencies, members of the community and school governors) . We pride ourselves on the comments we receive about our warm welcome and the friendly atmosphere which helps us to create a caring environment for your children.
Finally, we are thrilled with the hugely positive response from our survey and as an ongoing commitment to your children we strive to promote a happy, safe and friendly environment here at Richardson Endowed Primary.
Thank you for supporting us.
