Rule of law
Each class in school produce a Class Charter on an annual basis, where the children agree on a set of principles that they should all follow. They understand how their actions and the actions of others have consequences and they learn to distinguish between right and wrong. They understand why rules apply to everyone and how rules are essential for the wellbeing and safety of all. Our school mission statement and code of conduct ensure that we shape our children to become valuable, caring, respectful and considerate members of our school, the local community and wider British society.
Over recent years, we have developed strong links with Merseyside Police, a number of who are regular visitors to the school. For example, for the last three years, our Year Six children have been involved in a programme working with the police which aims to cut down on anti-social behaviour caused by the use of scrambler bikes. This has resulted in groups of our children taking part in police led visits to an activity centre in the Lake District, a trials bike training centre in Lancashire and, for a small number of pupils, a visit to Lapland to meet Santa!
Our Year Six pupils also participate in the GANGS (Get Away ‘n’ Get Safe) programme each year. The programme’s mission is to educate, inspire and empower young people to take control of their future by rejecting the gang lifestyle. It has the following aims:
• To deliver the message “get away and get safe” to as many young people as possible.
• To create safer communities free from fear and anti-social behaviour.
• To inspire our young people to achieve their full potential.
• To prevent further victims of gang related violence.
