Online safety message

Emails/Chatrooms:

To keep children and young people safe online ensure they are aware of safety tips or rules like the following. These tips will also need to be communicated in a way that does not scare children, but encourages them to take responsibility.

  • Never tell anyone you meet on the internet your name, address, telephone numbers, or any other information about your family, where you live or the school you go to.
  • Do not send anyone your picture, credit card or bank details without checking with a responsible adult.
  • Never give out your password to anyone, even your best friends.
  • Do not stay in a chat room if anyone says anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or worried and tell a parent/carer if you see such material.
  • Always tell an adult if you receive a message that is scary, threatening or rude, do not respond and log off.
  • If you wish to meet someone you have met in cyberspace, as a parent/carer’s permission and then only when they can be present.
  • Always be yourself and do not pretend to be anyone or anything you are not.
  • Never open attachments to emails which come from people or sources you do not know They may contain viruses and damage your computer.
  • Learn your ‘netiquette’ widely accepted rules of behavior include some of the following. Typing in CAPITAL LETTERS look like you are shouting so use asterisks for emphasis.
  • Be aware that people online may not be what they seem, adults can pretend to be children with similar interests to yourself.
  • Be polite when entering a chat room, check out what people are talking about before participating. Be careful not to use bad language, providers will terminate your account!
  • Finally enjoy your time on the internet but do not forget about all the other things you can do:

 

  • - Share time with your family.
  • - Read a good book.
  • - Play with friends.
  • - Participate in sport.

SMART watches

We would like to remind parents and carers that in order to keep our children safe, SMART watches are not allowed to be worn in school.

Smartwatches are like tiny computers you wear on your wrist. They usually tell the time and count the steps a person takes during the day. Most smartwatches connect with a smart phone, letting the user make calls, and send and receive messages. Often smartwatches have microphones and speakers. Some even have cameras. Therefore, as well as being a distraction in class they also pose a safeguarding concern.

Building Resilience –maths

With challenge comes resilience. As part of developing children’s resilience in Maths, we have been using a variety of problem solving activities. This encourages children to discuss their learning, think of an efficient method or approach and develop an understanding of how they have reached the answer. In Maths, Year 6 have been ‘regoogling’ long multiplication and the strategies needed to solve missing number and unfamiliar questions.

Below is the NRich activity that Year 6 attempted; some children building their resilience, determined to get to the final solution.

       

Difference between a concern and a complaint

A concern may be defined as ‘an expression of worry or doubt over an issue considered to be important for which reassurances are sought’. A complaint may be defined as ‘an expression of dissatisfaction however made, about actions taken or a lack of action’.

It is in everyone’s interest that concerns and complaints are resolved at the earliest possible stage. Many issues can be resolved informally, without the need to use the formal stages of the complaint’s procedure. Our School and Trust takes concerns seriously and will make every effort to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.

If you have difficulty discussing a concern with a particular member of staff, we will respect your views. In these cases, the Head of School will refer you to another staff member. Similarly, if the member of staff directly involved feels unable to deal with a concern, the Head of School will refer you to another staff member. The member of staff may be more senior but does not have to be. The ability to consider the concern objectively and impartially is more important.

We understand however, that there are occasions when people would like to raise their concerns formally. In this case, our School will attempt to resolve the issue internally, through the stages outlined within this complaint’s procedure.

I have a concern, what do I do?

Speak to the classteacher.

Most issues will be resolved, however, if you continue to be concerned, or your worry is about the classteacher, go to the next stage.

Speak to a School Leader.

Most issues will be resolved, however, if you continue to be concerned, or your worry is about the School Leader, go to the next stage.

Speak to a deputy headteacher.

Your issue is likely to be resolved, however, if you are still concerned, or you are not satisfied with what the DHT has done, go to the next.

Make an appointment with the head.

Please be aware that you can jump stages – if you feel you need to please contact the school office and they will direct you to the appropriate person.

 

EYFS and attendance

It's been a busy week in the EYFS and the children have been really immersed in our

‘Explorers’ scope. We spent time watching the moon landing and during PE we moved like astronauts, imagining what it would be like if we had no gravity! We have been working on our phonics and writing books about Space. The children are really beginning to apply what we are learning in focus sessions to their own work and their progress is impressing us all.

We are already excited about our learning next week when we will be focusing on Chinese New Year, learning the names of the animals and looking at Chinese writing.

A reminder to parents that all EYFS children need a

water bottle and a PE kit in school at all times.

Attendance in Early Years -did you know? 

The reasons for children to attend regularly at their Early Years setting are to support their learning and development, to make sure that children are kept safe, their wellbeing is

promoted and they do not miss out on their entitlements and opportunities. Good attendance promotes good outcomes for children. Poor attendance and punctuality, even at the earliest age, can affect achievement in later life.
