From today, those experiencing domestic abuse will be able to go into a Boots or indie chemist & seek help. If they say the codeword ‘ANI’ they’ll be taken to a private room & asked if they want to call 999 or domestic abuse helpline. ANI stands for Action Needed Immediately

Hollie McNish had a good point over on Instagram. That if you or your kids are stressed by the idea of 'lockdown' and 'isolation' reframe the concept as 'hibernation' which makes it sound more fun and squirrelish.

Get up. Get a routine. Get outside when you can. Move more. Focus on the day in front of you. (Not the month or year.) Don't live inside hypothetical catastrophes. Focus on what you can control. Even if it is your breathing. Don't beat yourself up for not baking banana bread.

It’s okay to feel how you’re feeling right now. If you’re feeling worried, sad, frustrated or anything else about being in another lockdown, they’re all normal emotional responses to what’s happening. Be gentle with yourself. Text YM to 85258 for free mental health support.

Drama

The Waldegrave Drama Department is an exciting place, where learners develop in a creative and stimulating environment. Students respond positively to the freedom that drama at Waldegrave allows, as well as valuing our outstanding resources which enable them to realise purposeful and sophisticated pieces of drama.

Drama occupies a unique position in the school curriculum, providing students with opportunities to collaborate, debate and to realise creative intentions as a performer, director and designer, to the highest of standards. Encouraging students to take risks in their learning is central to our aims, as is fostering a sense of curiosity and critical reflection.  This ethos facilitates a creative process from which students create work with a sense of pride and achievement.

In Year 7 students are introduced to the full range of explorative strategies and drama techniques that enable them to access both thematic and text based schemes of learning. It is in this first year of drama at Waldegrave that a foundation of shared knowledge and understanding is acquired and this paves the way into their next two years of study at KS3. In Year 8 students are encouraged to explore important themes such as bullying and homelessness as well as revisiting and developing the key skills obtained in Year 7. In their final year at KS3 students can respond to more challenging stimulus material and develop leadership capacities by taking responsibility for shaping group work through devising projects.

At GCSE and A level students are challenged to work to professional standards in an atmosphere of creative collaboration. The chosen exam syllabus encourages students to study a number of theatre texts from Shakespeare to contemporary drama. We seek to surprise, amaze and challenge our older students, not only through the stimulating work within the course, but through exposure to a range of other theatre experiences through workshops and theatre visits.

Central to drama is the discovery of potential and learners can unleash their individual potential in a variety of ways; through their work in lessons, in extra-curricular Drama Clubs and in school productions and concerts.
