Receiving respect from others is important because it helps us to feel safe and to express ourselves.
Being respected by important people in our lives growing up, teaches us how to be respectful toward others.
Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they’re different from you or you don’t agree with them.
Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety and wellbeing.
Respect doesn’t have to come naturally – it is something you learn.
Respect is the glue that holds your relationships together. Learn ways to be respectful and know what to do when somebody isn’t respectful toward you.
You will see a series of these types of posts as we recognise our values of Care and Respect at Brighton Primary and acknowledge and value our differences. We encourage you to talk about them with your children and discuss what this means to you and your family.
