Good To Be Me!
Understanding Who We Are
This is the important topic for the coming terms as girls and boys have begun their learning journey focussing on books that cover a range of topics on well-being, diversity and inclusivity – these include some of the texts Chilton received as part of the successful Ramsgate Books for Change project last year.
Head of School Kate Law explained there is an added dimension to this annual PSHE initiative that was could not be engaged with on a term-long scale last year due to the pandemic lockdown measures across the UK.
She said: “This project is particularly important this year as the children have been isolated from each other and so many people have been affected by that in so many ways.
“Building a community at Chilton is part of our school ethos and so the project helps us to move forward from an unsettling time.
“Pupils will investigate self-esteem and self-worth as well as identity and the importance of family/community. It will give them a chance to find out more about each other and themselves, and will reinforce the diversity of our school community.”
