Year 4 Assembly 25th November

Alan Cocker (cockera) on: Headteacher's Blog

Well done Year 4! It was great to be in your assembly this week. I really like the way you created a script and story which weaved in the learning from this term. It seems you have really grasped a lot and I so impressed with the confidence you had to share your learning in front of so many. Thanks also to those who helped behind the scenes - children looked great!

Pictures to follow.

E-Safety Evening for Parents 10th November 2015

Alan Cocker (cockera) on: Headteacher's Blog

A great thank you to the parents who came to the e-safety evening tonight. The information provided to help our children be safe, how to conduct themselves online and how to deal with inappropriate online behaviour was really powerful. Thanks for the informative discussion and good questions raised. It was particularly useful to hear your points about how to get more parents aware and how to promote the key messages to the parents who were not in attendance. We will be updating the website with some of this guidance and resources in due course. In the meantime if you have any other ideas or suggestions just let me, Mrs Keilty or Mrs Adams know.
