Hollywood Pupil Council have found some research on the benefits of wearing slippers in school. It is supposed to help with concentration, behaviour and emotional well being. We asked the pupils and they unanimously voted to have a slipper day and carry out some research of our own to see if we agree. Pupils should bring their slippers or slipper socks along with them to school - if your child has neither they can bring an extra pair of old socks that you don’t mind getting a bit grubby. Please bear in mind that pupils will need shoes to wear outside during play/lunch times.
Thank you from Mrs Keegan.
Hollywood Primary School is taking part in anti-bullying week with fun activities, lesson, assemblies taking place throughout the week.
Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying throughout the year.
The theme this year is ‘Power for Good’ with the following key aims:
– support children and young people to use their Power for Good – by understanding the ways in which they are powerful and encouraging individual and collective action to stop bullying and create the best world possible.
– To help parents and carers to use their Power for Good – through supporting children with issues relating to bullying and working together with schools to stop bullying.
– To encourage all teachers, school support staff and youth workers to use their Power for Good – by valuing the difference they can make in a child’s life, and taking individual and collective action to prevent bullying and create safe environments where children can thrive.

We will be working with UNICEF to achieve the UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award over the next three years. This means that we will embed children's rights in our school ethos and culture. The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. A rights-respecting school is a community where children's rights are learned, taught, practiced, respected, protected and promoted.
If you would like further information on this award, please look at http://www.unicef.org.uk/rights-respecting-schools/
We will be introducing it to children over the next few weeks as we start our journey to becoming rights-respecting!
