Introducing

Introducing

Throughout Yr7 and Yr8 all students are expected to complete a soft skills passport called ‘Introducing.’

The idea behind this initiative is to help develop all our students into confident, well-rounded and thoughtful members of the school and wider community. During the many different parts of the programme, students will develop a variety of skills and attributes and undertake a wide variety of experiences.

Each letter of Introducing represents a new skill or experience for our students.

G

Setting students challenges outside of the classroom is an integral part of this process. Our aim is to push them out of their comfort zone and encourage them to try new things. Importantly, all the criteria of the ‘introducing’ programme is achievable for all students regardless of their academic ability.

By the end of Year 8 every child should have gathered the evidence they require to graduate from the programme and gain their ‘Introducing Passport.’

We ask for your support and encouragement and look forward to celebrating your child’s achievements in the first two years of their secondary school journey.
