Health and Safety - Parking Around School
Please can we remind parents to park around the school site with due consideration for our friends and neighbours in the houses close by. One or two drives have been blocked lately and the residents understandably frustrated.
As you will know the school passed on letters from PC John Seymour on the 22nd and 29th January about safe parking at the front of the school. Parents are advised to read these letters carefully as I understand that the local police are paying close attention to parking around all the neighbourhood schools in the area at present and that fines may be issued for traffic violations.
Spring Term 2014
As usual there is a lot going on this term ! Please see our newsletters for more details by clicking on the button on the left hand side of this page.
One focus this term is E-Safety. We have included a link to a great website. Please click below if you would like to reinforce our messages about staying safe on line.
We hope you enjoy these images of our E-Safety Drama Workshops. Each class travelled into the screen of a giant imaginary computer for a fairy tale adventure. There were lots of tricky decisions to make while they were on-line. They learned to look out for tricks and traps and NEVER TO SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION.
Amy the drama leader reminded the children that Mams, Dads, Nanas, Grandmas, Grandads and Teachers are always ready to listen and help you if anything on your computer makes you sad or scared.
We will continue to work closely with Sedgefield Schools Sports Partnership to gove our children the best possible Physical Education Offer we can. To learn more about our School Sports Partners click on the link below.
