Our Learning Value for Autumn 2 is Resilience.


At Southglade we know that you show resilience when:

  • you persevere and don't give up
  • you try your best to complete a challenging task
  • you learn from your mistakes



Alan Rapley

On Wednesday we had a very special visitor come and deliver an assembly about resilience. Alan Rapley competed in the GB swimming team during the 1996 Olympics. Although he had missed out on qualifying for the 1992 Olympics by 0.05 seconds hard work and perseverance allowed him to fulfil his lifelong dream! He inspired the children and helped them to realise that anything is possible when you are resilient!

Resilience at Southglade

Here are some of the ways children show resilience at Southglade. Year 1 worked as a team to pass a hula hoop without letting go of their hands whilst year 6 have been writing about how they showed resilience during their residential to Kingswood.
