16 Bright Days are going to be a key area in which Guidance material will be delivered to students. Each Year Group will have 5 days (Years 11, 2 and 13 will work slightly differently due to examinations in the summer term) in which they focus on key topics for a day, giving time to go into a developing depth on key issues / topics and enable time to reflect on areas discussed. These will be split into 5 key areas:
Bright Bodies – These will look at Health, Sexual Health and matters around emotions.
Bright Lives – Cultural awareness, Social development
Bright Sparks – Science, Technology, Engineering and mathematics integrated
Bright Lights – Art, Drama and music merged together
Bright Futures – Careers development
