Archbishop Sancroft High School launches 'Positive Pockets'
Spreading happiness is the motto at one of the classes at Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston.
Since September, students with special needs have been writing notes to their classmates, complimenting them on particular skills or thanking them for their friendship.
The notes are put into an advent-calendar like pocket, which is fixed on to one of the walls, with the student’s name on it.
The nurture group, made up of 14 boys and girls aged 12 to 14, writes notes once a week, but are encouraged by their teacher Lucy Rodgerson to write however often they like.
“This project is aimed at making everyone feel valued. The students really enjoy it and are very thoughtful about what they want to say to each other,” said Ms Rodgerson. “Some have enjoyed it so much that they introduced the concept at home.”
