Dear Parents and Carers
This week we will have the first of three assemblies across the session which focus on Time for Reflection. All Scottish Schools are responsible for delivering Time for Reflection in a way that is suited to their own particular needs. However, some come features are that Time for Reflection:
“… provides opportunities for the school community to express and celebrate values which are considered common human values;
gives the school community time to reflect upon a variety of traditions and viewpoints as well as other stimuli such as literature, art and music;
provides opportunities for the community to reflect upon values, beliefs, commitments and hopes which are implicit in being human.” (CFE Briefing 16)
We hope that all students will benefit from our Time for Reflection and that this will support us, as a school, as we move forward with our Rights Respecting School agenda. However, any parent or carer who does not wish their child to participate in Time for Reflection should please contact the school and we will provide an alternative activity.
