Reflect and Respect

In assemblies this week we focused on our Lawford Mead value of respect. We learnt about the Jewish festival of Yom Kippur, a time to reflect on the year gone by and consider how we can be kinder and more considerate in the year ahead. At Lawford Mead it’s always a good time to challenge ourselves to be better. We looked at some kindness challenge ideas suggested by the NSPCC. Could you try a few of these next week?
