St Silas achieves ATSSA Gold Award!

Going for Gold!

We are extremely proud to announce that we have been awarded the Attachment and Trauma Sensitive Schools Gold Award. This is a fantastic achievement, and it shows how hard we have worked to create a welcoming, supportive and inclusive school where children, families and staff are nurtured and championed in a safe and caring environment.

Here are some of the things that the panel said...

  • St Silas Church of England Primary School has developed a 'culture of compassion and nurture'.
  • 'All 6 Gold criteria have been evidenced adequately, and in most cases, more than adequately.'
  • 'St Silas Church of England Primary School is a trauma-informed and trauma-responsive organisation.'
  • 'An attachment- and trauma-sensitive approach is becoming increasingly interwoven into strategy, policy and practice. It is no longer a ‘tick box’ of things to do, but a rich tapestry which is organic and dynamic, responding to the needs of the whole school population.'
