Democracy-At St Wilfrid's we understand that it is important for everyone to be listened to. This term we have elected our class school council, they attend regular meetings with Mrs Reynolds and share the thoughts and ideas of their class. Each class has a 'School council folder' in which children are encouraged to read the minutes of meetings and submit their ideas.
"I feel happy that I was voted for by my class to be on the school council, because it lets me share my friends ideas with Mrs Reynolds" Nana
"I felt proud when I was voted on the school council, as my class voted for me. I like making new friends on the school council and sharing ideas" Finlay
Mutual respect-St Wilfrid's we are always providing opportunities for the children to make links with the wider community, Ripon class read their Remembrance poems at the village memorial, to honor those who have fallen or fought in wars. Hexham class lead the school Remembrance service, inviting family members and governors.
Prevent- 'reduces or eliminates the risk of individuals becoming involved in terrorism. Prevent involves the identification and referral of those susceptible to violent extremism into appropriate interventions. These interventions aim to divert the susceptible from embarking down the path to radicalisation'. At St Wilfrid's we are committed to the Prevent agenda and have adopted a school policy to ensure our staff are trained to identify and reduce the risk to our children and our community. Staff and Governors are all trained annually on Prevent.
