It has been another busy week at Hardenhuish but our young people continue to work hard and follow our Covid security measures brilliantly.
We are continuing to encourage the wearing of face coverings in indoor communal areas to keep our community safe and this will become even more pertinent as we spend an increasing amount of time indoors.
As the weather gets colder and wetter, please encourage your young person to bring coats to school to ensure they stay as dry and warm as possible as they move around the site.
A reminder that jumpers are compulsory from Monday.
Have a good weekend.
Wellbeing Award Celebrations at Hardenhuish
Last week, Hardenhuish School were delighted to receive national recognition when they were awarded the Wellbeing for Schools Award.
Accredited by the National Children’s Bureau, the award recognises the focus Hardenhuish has places on the wellbeing and mental health of their pupils and staff. All members of the school community contributed to the verification process, and identified wellbeing as being at the heart of the school.
Lisa Percy, Headteacher commented, “ I am extremely proud that our school has been recognised for the work that has taken place across the school, ensuring that our pupils feel safe, valued, cared for, and proud to be part of our community”. The report also recognised the importance placed on the link between wellbeing and academic success and the collaborative approach throughout the school, from the new Year 7 pupils all the way through to Year 13, all members of staff, and the Governors at Hardenhuish.
Hardenhuish was described as a welcoming and nurturing school and the report acknowledged that the students achieve well, partly as a result of this focus on their wellbeing. Mrs Glossop, Assistant Head who has led the accreditation process is rightly proud of the achievement : “Wellbeing isn’t just about box ticking or hot yoga lessons at Hardenhuish; instead it underpins all the decisions we make for the whole school community. We continue to raise the awareness and importance of mental health for both pupils and staff and promote self-care, especially during these challenging times. Wellbeing is about ‘walking the talk’ for us”
The PE Faculty are aware that there is still a delay in getting PE kit, until this is resolved students are allowed to wear plain black shorts/top/fleece or as plain as possible. Due to the weather and PE lessons being outdoors students are allowed to wear a plain black waterproof coat, no puffa jackets or fluffy hoods etc.
