  • Certified School Status

    Published 23/02/24

    We are thrilled to announce that we have once again achieved our Online Safety Certified School status through National Online Safety, marking the third consecutive year of this significant accomplishment. This success wouldn't have been possible without the unwavering support from everyone involved in our whole school online safety approach. From teachers and staff to parents and students, each contribution has been invaluable in ensuring a safe and secure digital environment for all. This achievement not only reflects our commitment to prioritising online safety but also underscores the dedication and collaboration within our school community. Thank you for being part of this journey and for championing online safety with us.

    What an awesome week we've had celebrating Children's Mental Health Week! We've been busy learning all about how to take care of our mental health with extra special wellbeing sessions. It's been super cool hearing about all the fun things happening in class, especially the wellbeing workshop for Years 4-6—it was a blast!

    Our amazing School Council organised some fantastic lunchtime activities that everyone loved! They've been superheroes, planning everything from a mental health assembly to lots of fun lunchtime activities for the whole school to enjoy.

    A big thank you to everyone for helping us raise a whopping £447 for YoungMinds UK! There's still time to donate—just visit our school's JustGiving page:

  • Children's Mental Health Week 2024

    Published 02/02/24

    From February 5th to 9th, 2024, we're participating in Children's Mental Health Week, and fundraising for YoungMinds UK. Our School Council have selected YoungMinds UK as their chosen charity due to their exceptional dedication to championing children's mental health. We will also be teaming up with Mrs Miles’ ‘Mental Health Ice Hockey’ team to promote positive well-being.

    ‘Dress to Express’ - On Friday 9th February, children are encouraged to express themselves through their clothes, hair etc. This could simply be their favourite jumper, a ribbon in their hair or a pair of socks. We encourage your child to be as creative as they wish; this could include wearing a wig, face paint or a funny hat. Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for a normal school day (eg; flat shoes, warm coat etc) and any items should be clearly labelled as we cannot be responsible for their safe return.

    To raise money for YoungMinds UK we are asking for a donation of £1 per child. Please send your child into school with this money and it will be collected by their class teacher. Alternatively, you can donate to our school justgiving via the link below.

    Lunchtime activities - During lunchtime on Friday 9th February, our School Council will be hosting some lovely wellbeing activities in the old hall. Pupils can participate in the following activities for a suggested donation of 50p: Wellbeing Minecraft, colouring and drawing, kahoot quiz, word trail, puzzles and word searches.

    We have lots of activities planned during Children's Mental Health Week (Feb 5th - 9th) to help the children understand the importance of mental health. If you would like any help or guidance please chat to our staff or visit the ‘Children's Mental Health’ section of our website.
