We’ve reached the end of the Spring 1 half-term. Thank you to everyone for attending the parent-teacher meetings this week.
Next half term, our Living and Learning sessions return to the theme of mental wellbeing. MindMate supports mental health and wellbeing – check out the resources and support that’s available for parents and carers.
As always the associated weekly Living and Learning statement can be found on our school calendar.
Sticking to the theme of health, find out more about Play Streets, Junior Parkrun and Park Play in this short video.
This week’s seen us mark Safer Internet Day – talk to your child about what they’ve learnt about in school. To help support staying safe online, have you got parental controls switched on? Check out this easy to follow guide. Read more information about parental controls.
As part of the Safer Internet Day, we had some special visitors from the NSPCC come into school. Here’s some lovely feedback…
Thank you for allowing us to visit today to share important messages with children. As soon as we walked through the door, we had a warm welcome from the reception staff, the children on the playground (they all recognised buddy, our mascot) and from the teachers. You have a lovely school, and it had a warm and friendly feel to it!
Both classes [Y5 and Y6] engaged extremely well… There were some great discussions and involvement from all children. Both volunteers commented how well behaved the children were.
Does your child have additional needs?
