I don’t really understand why manners have fallen off the agenda of our education system, but I think it is a shame that they have. I blame my own generation: I think we have taken our eye off the ball and have undermined the importance of being polite to one another. Road rage, no win no fee legal action, or a feeling of ‘Am I bovvered?’ seems to have left our society with a selfish heart. We are going to do something to address this in our school, to draw a line in the sand. A ‘Politeness Week’ when we concentrate and re-focus our minds on what it takes to be polite and well mannered with one another, young or old. Why not join us?
