SMSC Day 2019

Dear Parents and Carers

 SMSC Day 15th November 2019

 SMSC stands for social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.

 This November, our SMSC day will be school based for all year groups. The programme for this term

is part of our drive to ensure that Stalham High School meets the statutory obligations with regards

to SMSC.

Year 7

Anti-bullying:

We have organised a series of workshops which support the annual national campaign to

stamp out bullying in schools. The workshops will ensure that our year 7 students

understand the meaning of bullying and will give them strategies to deal with it.

Anti-bullying week runs from Monday 11th November to Friday 15th November and the

theme this year is “Change Starts with Us”.

 

Year 8

Community First Aid:

*Students should attend in non-school uniform – as they will be doing much work on the

floor. Clothes should be comfortable. No skirts, strappy or cropped tops.*

Students will be working in groups under the guidance of a Community First

Responder. They will learn about emergency management, calling 999 and some first aid

procedures such as dealing with burns, epilepsy, and stroke. They will practice getting a

simulated casualty into the recovery position, CPR and how to respond to someone

choking.

Year 9 students will be learning about different aspects of finance that are relevant to

them now and in the future. There are four different workshops:

money safe, being able to recognise and protect themselves from fraud and scams.
