Colin Supports Theale Green’s ‘Respectful Behaviours’ Campaign

30 September 2021

Theale Green have recently unveiled their Respectful Behaviours Manifesto through social media, assemblies and staff training (INSET). They were delighted to welcome back Corinna Bartle who finished her A levels this year to launch the Manifesto to all staff. This builds on months of consultation across the school to establish a safe environment in which the whole school community feels valued and demonstrates respectful behaviours and language to one another, supporting the school’s zero-tolerance of breaches of respectful behaviour, including gender, religion, sexuality, race, disabilities and neurodiversity.

Colin was thrilled to be asked by Headteacher, Jo Halliday, to feed into this campaign. Colin makes regular visits to the school, building strong relationships and gaining the trust of the students there, and providing youth work support.

Colin said: “I held two open conferences with a group of young students from the school. The young people were open and candid with their views and what changes could be made to make things better for students. The data I collected was fused together with other groups within the school to build what is now part of the foundation, ethos and framework of Theale Green School.

“It was a very important piece of work, not just because it was integral to the wellbeing of the students and staff within Theale Green School, but also a good example of how the school and Berkshire Youth have worked together to create a space for students to open up and give frank, honest and candid answers to uncomfortable narratives. Mrs Halliday approached us after discussions between the Student Council and Senior Leadership Team led to the decision to develop a manifesto for the school community written by students on return from the winter lockdown in March. Berkshire Youth were part of a small group of other students and staff that led the development of the manifesto, which is aimed at building a better, safe, diverse and inclusive environment for all concerned.”

Well done to Colin for his involvement in this initiative; once again demonstrating the importance, value and positive impact of good youth work.
