Drop Down Day

On our drop down day on Tuesday 13th March we covered a range of topics from sex education through to British Values. Drop down days are part of our PSHCEE (personal, social, health, citizenship and economic education) and SMSC (Social, moral, spiritual and cultural) programme when we cover some of the most important non-examined learning in our  curriculum. Student engagement was really high all day and discussion about Brexit and British Values particularly high level. Our community is so diverse and we celebrate all of the wonderful opportunities this diversity provides.
