Anti-Bulling Week

Anti-Bullying Week 2018 had a focus of ‘Choose Respect’ which ties in with our RESPECT PRIDE value.

On ‘Wear Blue Friday’ students and staff wore something blue to show our unity and support for the Anti-Bullying campaign. On Monday students and staff wore odd socks to reinforce that we are different and to show that we accept and tolerate diversity; again another one of our values – DIVERSITY. Throughout the week during Form Time students participated in a range of activities such as: responding to ‘agony aunt’ style issues; debate and discussion; producing comic strips and participation in role play.

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
