What a busy week! Everyone looks very spotty dressed in their clothes for Children In Need, please remember it is the donation that counts– there is still time to make your donation if your child took up the offer of non uniform day in exchange for money for the charity.
It is also Anti Bullying week. We had a great assembly led by Open View Education on bullying, we took part in National Odd Socks day on Monday because we are all individuals and should be respected as such. We also met with our anti bullying champions– there is one for each class to advocate for their class mates and calm situations down. Sometimes children don’t like to tell an adult if they are unhappy, although we do have “worry boxes” in each class, having one of their peer group– a trusted friend is also an other means to voice a concern.
We had our first meeting of our Parent Forum last Tuesday. This is a means for parents to come along and have a cup of coffee/tea with myself and Mrs Collins to have your views heard about the school. The minutes of these meetings are on the school website under the “parent” tab. There were some interesting topics of conversation: the open mornings, the parent consultations now during the day rather than one parent evening and of course parking. Please do go to the website and have a look. Our next meeting will be 12th March at 8:30am– all are welcome.
Can I just remind everyone that children must only eat crisps at lunch time. Break time snacks should be fruit or sliced vegetables such as carrot sticks etc. We are a healthy school so no sweets or chocolate please. Thank you
On next Tuesday 20th November we will be having a special mass in school for the children and parents of year 5. This begins at 2:15pm. All parents are welcome, we will set room aside for car parking in the playground.
