Just saw the new Matilda film. It’s basically perfect. There are no words to describe Matthew Warchus, or Emma Thompson. Lashana Lynch sensational. showing again why he’s one of the very, very best. ‘Matilda’ might make for a good Junior Musical one day…

It's been one year since we set up Footnotes, the Sixth Form and Year 11 book club that investigates history's greatest novels and delves into the worlds they create. In that time we've run through eight key novels and dozens of adaptations, spoofs and spin-offs from all media. https://t.co/qiVtAey6Bh

7 Key Areas

1. Food and Fitness

Food and nutrition, physical activity and sport are seen as integral parts of the school experience at Stanwell. The health and welfare of all children sits at the heart of the Food and Nutrition policy and reflects the core values of the school.

2. Mental and Emotional Health and Well Being

Well-being and emotional health are at the heart of Stanwell’s provision. We foster a sense of belonging to a school community where each individual is valued and her/his uniqueness is recognised. We aim to be caring and positive and strive to provide an environment that is both safe and secure for all.

3. Personal Development and Relationships

Stanwell’s personal development and relationship policies aim to provide pupils with information about growth and development and raise awareness about themselves and develop respect for others.  Strong and supportive relationships are encouraged and appreciated.

4. Substance Use and Misuse

Stanwell aims to enable pupils to make informed choices by increasing their knowledge about substances and providing opportunities for them to explore their own and others attitudes. We join forces with outside agencies to offer a comprehensive package of support around this action area.

5. Environment

Stanwell takes every opportunity to enhance the environment of the school. We aim to enable pupils to learn how to care for and protect their environment and practice the key concepts of ESDGC. The Eco-Schools committee also encourages pupils to engage with environmental and sustainable development issues.

6. Safety

At Stanwell, we aim to provide a safe environment for our pupils. We have a Health & Safety Policy that addresses many of the areas including security, pupil welfare and educational visits; we also have a separate Anti Bullying Policy, Racial Equality Policy, eSafety Policy and Sun Safety guide.

7. Hygiene

Stanwell follows the recommendations of Public Health Wales’ ‘All Wales Infection Prevention and Control Guidance for Education Settings’ to ensure that hygiene is taught properly across the school. We recognise the importance to pupils and staff of preventing and dealing with infections efficiently and effectively.
