When discussing equality with my students the other week, I asked them to come up with some counter points they could use when discussing the issue with those who oppose equal rights. They showed me this. And I love it! https://t.co/BWgknrhVd5

Day and Week

Aureus Day and Week

Our normal day runs from 8.30-4.30pm Monday-Thursday. We have an extended day so that on Fridays we can finish early at 1.00pm and maintain the school community's wellbeing.

Our vision is to grow a community culture so we start and end each day together, we sit down and eat together, we use coaching to talk to and to listen to each other.

Our school day consists of:

8.30-9.00am
Community Wellbeing and Mindfulness Programme

9.00-10.20am
Lesson 1

10.20-10.40am
Community Break

Our Community Personal Development Time runs Monday-Thursday, with Mondays being led by an external partner to release staff for meetings.

Mondays:

* We are delighted to be working in partnership with MF Kent to host the Didcot Martial Arts Academy. All of our Year 7s are invited to participate for free from Monday 18th September.


Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays:

* Will run Personal Development Time from 3.40-4.30pm. 

Fridays:

* We are planning an early finish for staff and students, so there will be no personal development time. Students will go to their community lunch (12.00-12.30pm) and then community coaching session (12.30-1.00pm). Students will be dismissed from the site at 1.00pm.
