Happy Friday everyone!

Lots to report on this week and the newsletter is also out so check that out too!

This week year 6 had their 2nd visit to The long Eaton School library. They took back the books they'd borrowed and we were given a selection of books to bring back for our own shelves. They have really loved using the library and we are hoping to create our own specific library space in the near future!

This week 10 of our year 3, 4 and 5 children went to Trent College to be trained as Anti Bullying Ambassadors. This is a nationally recognised accreditation and will support us in this very important area of our school behaviour system.

Year 2 had a great visit from the Natwest money sense team. These workshops help children to begin to understand the importance of saving and money planning.

I'm sure you're all aware of the issues surrounding online safety and I have put some further information in the parent's tab. If any parent would like a copy of the school leaflet they are in the school foyer.

We are having quite a lot of issues spilling in to school regarding children using Whatsapp and we would ask that parent's monitor this carefully. We recognise that children like to communicate with their friends on social media however it is starting to impact negatively on classroom and learning behaviours. We will therefore be informing parents of any issues regarding individual children and ask you to deal with this appropriately.

Year 4 and 5 China trip online payment system is now open and a letter will be sent to parents today who have expressed an interest in this.

Don't forget to follow us on Twitter and check out your class pages for information about your child's curriculum and spellings.
