R&R Day | Compassionate Relationships
We held our first of three, Rights & Responsibilities Days (R&R Day) this year, with the theme focusing on ‘Compassionate Relationships.’ R&R day is a chance for students to take time away from their usual timetable and focus on topics to develop character, social skills and community awareness.
At Ark Boulton, we are committed to serving students, not only in their academic life but towards becoming compassionate citizens in their community as well. Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) is compulsory in all schools in England, and so this day allowed students to learn and explore more about this topic.
With the help from Ark Boulton Staff and external workshop providers, the day covered topics such as; what is a healthy relationship, what it means to have consent, awareness of domestic violence, the dangers of sexting, the importance of team work, adolescence and puberty, and dealing with bullying and discrimination.
“I enjoyed my first rights and responsibilities day. I especially enjoyed the team work activity in the morning!” Student from Class of 2023. See our amazing team in action here!
“The drama production about bullying and domestic violence was good. It was funny and engaging but also felt very real. Sometimes you don’t realise how common bullying is.” Student from Class of 2020.
