It feels like another busy week in school.
This week is Anti-Bullying week in school. We ‘kicked’ this event off with ‘odd sock’ day – a day to draw attention to (and celebrate) what makes us unique.
In our school, there are two STOP messages in relation to bullying:
- the definition: Several Times On Purpose
- the solution: Start Telling Other People
The theme this year is ‘Reach out’ which ties in perfectly with our message of telling someone if you’re being bullied or if you see it happening to someone else.
On Tuesday, we had the vaccination team in school to offer the flu nasal spray to children whose parents had given consent. Over 200 children had the vaccination and apart from some watering eyes and runny noses, the children handled it brilliantly.
Today, we had our second coffee morning of the year and our first for nursery parents. It was great to see people and take some time to have a chat. We’ve got two more of these coming up:
31 January 2023 for receptions parents 9-10am
28 February 2023 for nursery parents 9-10 am
We usually have a little gift for you to take away at the end of these sessions so they are worth coming to!
Friday 18 November is Children in Need and a non-uniform day for our children. If you’re able to donate, your child’s teacher will be collecting the money in class. Year on year, we always seem to raise a huge sum of money to send to this long established charity. We know things are difficult this year so whatever you can spare will be really appreciated. Please remember to send your child to school in appropriate wear. When asked about this, our JLT (Junior Leadership Team) described it as ‘setting appropriate’ and ‘well judged’. A copy of our uniform policy can be found here.
I’ve just looked at our school diary for the next few weeks – blink and it will be Christmas!
