We are now only a week away from the end of the half-term break. In this past week we have had the Year 7 Information Evening which I trust was really useful for our Year 7 parents. The netball team took part in the first tournament of the year and the sense of pride when scoring a goal was great to see and hear about. Well done to each and every person that represents Avanti Fields School so well – thank you.
Miss Vanessa Bardsley, the incoming Co-Principal who will be here now for the remainder of the academic year, has been in for two days this week. It has been a pleasure working with her again and we are both looking forward to the term ahead. Miss Bardsley will be running assemblies next week to introduce herself to the students and will be sharing a welcome video with parents next Tuesday.
Restorative Practice – Building Relationships, Improving Behaviour and Creating Stronger Communities
Meaningful learning takes place when we have meaningful relationships.
Continuing to read Mark Finnis’s book on restorative practice and developing a restorative mindset is such a great way to reflect on how we live with the core principles of The Avanti Way. “We need to love and be loved, and to be nourished by personal relationships that encourage us to be the best we can” is one of those principles and meaningful relationships are so vitally important.
Whether it be for the children as they come into school, or for our visitors or colleagues, the aim is to always smile and create a positive vibe which will result in positive experiences. The way we greet each other and the tone of our voice is very important and I thank you all for displaying these positive behaviours as we work together for the good of all of your children. I hope even as adults we work hard to communicate positively with each other and set that great example for our young people.
