Sitting in a Ferrari at the Year 11 Prom, competing in our all-inclusive sports day and celebrating success at Bradford University Student Rep awards are all activities where our students have developed their social skills in a range of different contexts. Trips to themes parks to celebrate high attendance or participation at the Rock Assembly in London in recognition of high levels of effort are a couple of ways that we have rewarded our students for their hard work.
Ofsted consider the social development of pupils to be shown by their:
• use of a range of social skills in different contexts, for example working and socialising with other pupils, including those from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds
• willingness to participate in a variety of communities and social settings, including by volunteering, cooperating well with others and being able to resolve conflicts effectively
• acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; they develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
Below are a collection of images that demonstrate the way in which UAK students are extending their social development.
