General information

On Monday mornings, Team Phoenix enjoy guided meditation - this is where pupils’ have the opportunity to lay on a large beanbag, with a blanket and relax whilst listening to guided meditation. This is to promote positive mindfulness for the rest of the week. 


Wednesday’s are our PE days. Pupils’ are advised to come into school wearing clothing appropriate for PE. Such as joggers, (shorts for the summer) T-shirts and trainers.

Team Phoenix are encouraged to read as much as possible. They read to a member of staff daily and read to a younger pupil in school twice a week. We also promote a “drop everything and read” session. This is to try and encourage reading as a pleasure rather than a chore. 

In class we also promote team work through lots of team games, drama activities and role play scenarios. Building positive friendships with peers and staff is greatly encouraged.
