This week we had a fire drill- the whole school was out in record time with all the children reacting sensibly. Even our new Reception lined up beautifully for their first evacuation. Well done!

On Tuesday Elaine Jones the curate from Sawley came to do an assembly. Elaine will be coming in to school on a regular basis to deliver assemblys which I know the children are going to really enjoy if Tuesdays presentation is anything to go by.

On Wednesday we had our first look rounds for our 2020 EYFS intake. We had a lovely email afterwards from one of the visiting families congratulating all the children for their lovely behaviour. Well done Dovedale for showing everyone what we're about!

Today has been Stand Up Derbyshire day and the children have been extra active in support of this initiative. We are a healthy school and encourage our children to be as active as possible. In support of this healthy lifestyle can you please make sure that packed lunch boxes do not contain sweets or plain chocolate. Chocolate biscuit type treats are acceptable alongside a balanced selection.

I am a pasting a link below to the NSPCC website online safety web page which has some good ideas for parents about being vigilant with regard to their children's online presence. Please give it a look as there are some practical tips about how to keep your children safe in the digital world.

Please check the September newsletter in the news section.

Have a great weekend!
