Friday update

Happy Friday all! Even though it is looking a it wet and windy!


I hope all our families are keeping well.

Can I ask that your child does not bring a fidget 'toy' to school unless this has been agreed with the teacher for a specific reason.

These 'toys' are designed to relieve stress and anxiety but can also cause a distraction if they are not monitored with ground rules established. If your child needs this your child's class teacher will have a discussion with you. Please contact the class teacher if you need to discuss this further.


We are currently advertising for a cook for our Summer WRAP around club, details can be found in our vacancies section. The hours are variable and only over the summer holiday.


Online safety

As children are spending more and more time accessing games online or communicating with friends make sure as a parent that you are checking their communications regularly and using services such as Net Nanny to prevent any unwanted material popping up. Apps like Snapchat have a location feature which allows users to see where the other user is. This should be switched off to keep your child safe if they are using this app.


Next week is a 4 day week for the children with Friday 28th being an INSET day.


I hope you all have a lovely safe weekend.
