Respect and positive mental health on timetablePosted: 4th May 2022
A day away from the school timetable helped students to develop into responsible young adults.
Students in Year 7 to Year 10 took part in a drop-down day as part of their personal, social, health and economic education.
Drop-down days take students away from the usual timetable to indulge in activities or topics giving a wider educational experience.
The day focused on respect, health lifestyles and positive mental health, with sessions giving students an opportunity to explore and discuss the topics.
As part of the work, they looked into the dangers of vaping and worked out how many sugar cubes are in various drinks, as well as producing a video on respect and what it meant to them.
Deputy Headteacher Rachel Braniff said: “These days are crucial to the education of the students at Burnt Mill Academy. We not only have a responsibility to provide them with great lessons, but we also have to create the lessons that create the responsible young adults that they will become.”
