I am the Data Administrator and I teach Maths to some of the Year 6 children.

Family Lunch 20.3.19

We welcomed over 250 parents today and again it was lovely to see so many of you. We we blessed with superb weather and I know the children thoroughly enjoyed showing off their school to you all.

Thanks so much for supporting our school events.

Mobile phone use on school premises

As a school, we allow children in Year 5 and 6 to bring mobile phones, as this allows parents/children peace of mind linked to safety when they travel to and from school alone.  Phones must not be kept in bags during the day and can be handed into the office or the class TA for safekeeping (the children know this rule).  Due to safeguarding,  from now on, we must ask that phones are turned off as soon children arrive on the premises and are not switched on until they leave the premises at the end of the day.  Teachers will be discussing this with children today and we hope that you will support us in this matter at home.

 

Grandparents Tea Party

Wow.. what a turn out!

We were delighted to see over 300 Grandparents today and I know the children simply loved showing off their school.

We have to admit, we didn’t expect such a great turn out (over double compared to last year) and plan to change the format slightly next time to allow a little more space and time.

Please pass on our thanks to all who braved the rainstorms to come and we hope they enjoyed seeing where their Grandchildren spend a good chunk of their time.

 

Kind Regards,

INTERNET ‘GAME’ WARNING – MOMO CHALLENGE

Dear Parent/Carer,

You may have heard of a ‘game’ doing the rounds on social media called The Momo Challenge. This game targets younger children and involves them in a series of tasks which may lead to self harm and potentially suicide.

Could I ask that you read the attached news report from the BBC and talk to your children about this issue and the way it may be making them feel if they have already been exposed to the game.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-47359623

WhatsApp and Facebook are both being used as a vehicle for this ‘game’; could I take this opportunity to remind you that WhatsApp has an age limit of 16 and Facebook 13, it would be sensible for your child not to be on these platforms.

 

Further guidance can be found here:

If you have any questions please do get in touch.

Regards

 

Miss Cook
