The focus for PSHE this week @ Hall Green School is Anti-Bullying. All students will be learning about bullying, what cyber-bullying is and the consequences of it. We will be learning in assembly and in form time about bullying and what action we must take if we are worried about bullying of any kind. All students will know who to see / talk to at school is they are worried about bullying. BullyingUK is a useful source with guidance for parents
The main Yr 11 Mock exams begin on Tuesday 4th December and pupils should be revising regularly at home in preparation. Our advice is that pupils aim to schedule 2 or 3 forty five minute revision sessions every evening, with 4 or 5 sessions at the weekend as well. The pupils recently had a series of revision workshops in school and know how and what to revise at home. If parents have any questions about the mock exams they should contact Mr Hosfield at school. Good luck to all those taking mock exams this December.

We are proud to inform our parents, pupils and wider community that Hall Green School has been working towards embedding the values and principals of the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award. It helps develop pupils’ acceptance of difference and diversity, and provides them with a strong moral compass. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together. We are awaiting confirmation of our Bronze Award, as we work towards Silver and Gold!
We have, for the 3rd year in a row, been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for our continued commitment and development to Physical Education, Physical Activity, School Sport and Leadership.
