Online Safety Workshops

June 14, 2018

James Edwards from Perform came into school on Wednesday to give online safety workshops to Year 1, 2 and 3. He gave an impressive performance as a superhero fighting the ‘internet baddies’! While distracting his audience, he made a quick change to become a totally different character – this helped the children to understand that people on the internet may not always be who they say they are. Everyone was totally captivated – a fabulous way to deliver the important message of staying safe on the internet to our younger children.

His colleague, Hannah Conway, is holding interactive workshops this morning to deliver the same message to Year 4, 5 and 6 by carrying out various role plays and scenarios for the pupils to take part in.

Thank you to Mrs Carberry who organised these workshops.

New Reception Parents Meeting

We held our new Reception parents meeting today for parents of children starting school in September 2018.

However, Miss Brewer and I were pleased to meet and talk to the new families who will be joining our school community soon.
