All the children in years 5 & 6 were given the opportunity to apply to be a Kindness Keeper.
To do so, they had to read the job description carefully and then write a paragraph about why they think they would be great for the job.
Lots of children applied but Miss Errington had the tricky job of picking only ten children to be the Kindness Keepers.
The Kindness Keepers had their first meeting. In this meeting they got to meet the other Kindness Keepers and they found out what the theme is for this years upcoming Anti-Bullying Week.
The theme is 'One Kind Word'. Take a look at the PowerPoint on the right to meet our new Kindness Keepers!
In our second meeting we discussed the things that they want to achieve in their role. They had so many ideas! They would like to raise some money to help create a safe space within school to relax (Peace Garden) and maybe do a plant donation in the Spring. They also liked the idea of being assigned to a class and they would like to be able to spend a few playtimes with other classes to support with friendship wobbles (but this currently depends on bubbles). As well as this they want to update the Anti-bullying charter...so watch this space! Also, they would like to develop a digital worry box that children can use when they have friendship questions.
Highfield's new Kindness Keepers!
Support for parents & guardians
In November, during national Anti-Bullying week (Friendship Week), the Kindness Keepres reviewed our Anti-Bullying Charter.
This is an important document and is displayed in every class as well as on the Anti-Bullying Ambassador display in the main school corridor.
