At Littlehampton Primary School, we support every aspect of your child’s growth and development, including helping them develop the necessary skills to flourish in life. This is achieved through a range of wellbeing programs, designed to promote social, emotional and physical health.
Super 7 Values
These are the values which we share as a school, proudly developed by our students and staff.
- Valuing others
- Including others
- Being trustworthy
- Positive attitudes
Our positive education strategies also include the PERMA model, which focuses on:
- Positive emotion
Supported by good sleep, exercise and nutrition, the five PERMA elements are important in achieving a happy, balanced and meaningful life.
School should be a safe place for every child. We take bullying very seriously and take proactive measures to identify and stop bullying within our school.
We teach our students the IT STOPS steps to help them stand up to behaviour they don’t like:
I – IGNORE: Ignore it for a while, and see what happens.
T – TALK: Tell them to stop.
S – SEE: Wait a while and see if it works.
T – TELL THEM: Tell them you’ll speak to an adult.
O – OPEN UP: Open up and speak to an adult.
P – PERSIST: Speak to as many adults as you need to until it stops.
S – STOP: If you follow these steps the bullying WILL stop.
Additionally, we conduct a “Bully Audit” every term. This is a confidential survey that asks students to anonymously identify other students who they feel have bullied them or others, or to reach out for help if they are having problems. Students identified by four or more others are given one-on-one support to help them learn new social skills on resolving issues with others in a more acceptable way, and to try and identify any issues which may be causing them to bully others.
Problems between students are resolved through Restorative Justice conversations, These give each student the opportunity to hear the other’s point of view, express their own feelings, apologise if appropriate, come to agreements about how they can resolve issues in future, and move forward together with mutual respect.
If you believe that your child is being bullied, or is bullying others, please contact us so we can step in to resolve the situation quickly.
