Emotional and Social Development
The school utilises many strategies to support the development of pupils’ social skills and enhance self-esteem, including breakfast and after-school clubs. Through RRS the acts of friendliness and good citizenship are promoted and embedded within school. Opportunities for self-esteem and nurture groups are well provided as well as providing one-to-one counselling and mentoring where necessary. Emotional literacy is the ability to understand and express feelings. Every morning at Beaumont Primary Academy, we self register how we are feeling. This is a core offer at Beaumont.
At Beaumont Primary Academy we are aware of the importance of personal development. This is reflected through being a Rights Respecting school but also through the ample opportunities created for pupils to feel emotionally secure to develop their talents and skills. This is through a variety of experiences within school and out of school. Throughout the academic year pupils have opportunities for out of school visits as well as having special visitors come to our academy.
