Girls on Board
As part of our continued Pastoral programme, this year we have signed up to Girls on Board .
Girls on Board is a programme which was developed by Andrew Hampton, Headteacher of Thorpe Hall School in Essex. The aim of the programme is to help girls, their parents and the teachers in our school understand the complexities and dynamics of girl friendships. The language, methods and ideas empower girls to solve their own friendship problems and recognises that they are usually the only ones who can. By way of supporting the girls, the school offers weekly sessions with the girls to help them communicate, understand and ultimately resolve any issues which arise. Girls on Board sessions are used with pupils in Years 3 to 6 – this is mainly girls, but where boys are within the friendship group there is also the option for them to be part of this.
