What Is Thought4TheWeek?

Keywords

Our tutorial resource is based on weekly keywords (received a term in advance) and is written to foster pupils’ SMSC, Personal Development, Cultural Capital and literacy skills, as reflected in Ofsted’s November 2019 EIF

Current

Written during the week prior to delivery in the classroom, Thought4TheWeek also incorporates (where applicable) recent news and calendar events.

Delivery

Tutors can choose to deliver the PowerPoint themselves, during tutorial, or they can use the filmed version, press play and allow Richard to deliver Thought4TheWeek himself, freeing up valuable tutor time to speak with individual tutees.

Review

Both the PowerPoint and filmed version of the Thought4TheWeek will be sent to you by email every Thursday evening, for you to forward whole-school, ready for delivery the following week.

Importance

Testimonials

Harwich and Dovercourt High School

Largely because of our subscription to Thought4TheWeek, OFSTED noted that our provision has led to pupils having a “well-developed sense of democracy and equality.” OFSTED noted that “Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted successfully” and this is mainly because of the combinations of assemblies and lessons driven by Thought4TheWeek. Thank you, Richard

Brentwood School

Richard always puts together an excellent lesson that can be tailored to your school or year group. The topics are always relevant and the resources he produces are very good at evoking discussion and debate. I would most definitely recommend subscribing to Thought4TheWeek.

Ormiston Bushfield Academy

The [Thought4TheWeek] PowerPoints are sent to 40 tutors, to use during tutor time. Thought4TheWeek means we get strong, topical and consistent SMSC messages across the Academy during the week.

Colchester County High School for Girls

I would highly recommend Thought4TheWeek for all school’s SMSC, British Values and Cultural Capital aims. The PowerPoint resources are superb and easy to follow with current news stories, book recommendations and ideas from modern thinkers. Topics are incredibly thought-provoking, allowing for debate and well as stretch and challenge for all abilities. The highly professional video resource is particularly helpful in guiding staff and pupils through culturally relevant themes and human values. Richard has also been very helpful and just an email away for support and continued guidance. Thank you Richard!
