Drop Down Days

The aim of Drop Down Days are to provide additional opportunities for students to develop as rounded individuals. Drop Down Days are in addition to the taught PSHE curriculum and Personal Development  and offer flexible enrichment opportunities that allow us to respond to the needs of our students and build upon the taught curriculum.

In practice this means:

  • There are opportunities for students to develop an awareness of, and respect for, themselves and others throughout our DD days.
  • These enhancement days support the development of positive self-esteem, which will help pupils to cope with the challenges of personal growth.
  • The wide range of activities enable students to be aware of the personal choices they can make and prepares them to make responsible decisions.
  • DD days help students to explore their feelings and emotions and promote confidence in one’s own ability.
  • We also provide chances for students to explore and question their own thoughts and feelings.
  • We give students the opportunity to engage with employers and further education providers to ensure future generations will benefit from quality, meaningful interactions that help them understand the links between courses, skills and the pathways they open up.

Assemblies

At Eden we offer students two assemblies a week. One of these is a themed assembly which links to the guided reading topic and the other addresses behaviours and attitudes.

In addition to this, we invite in many guest speakers who have recently included:

  • Brook Sexual Health Services
  • The Beacon Counselling Trust- Gambling Awareness
  • Exit UK- tackling far right extremism

“Eden is a life-transforming school where we provide the best education for young people who have complex social, emotional and mental health needs.”
