The focus is linked to the school’s commitment to promoting Fundamental British Values (FBV) and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), and connects with our Rights Respecting School Award initiative.

Girls of Steel Award

Students reflect on their interactions within and outside of school. They have opportunities to log participation in activities, clubs and events. The Year 3 and 4 scheme focuses on the School Values and sets challenges for the children to evidence them being Positive, Kind and Courageous. Years 5 and 6 construct an e-portfolio of their challenges, based on the six competencies of the Fusion Curriculum in addition to logs of participation, reflections of residential trips and any other information they wish to include. This content is assessed at the end of each year and a badge is awarded, Silver in Year 5 and Gold in Year 6.
