Dear Parents / Guardians,
I have arranged for Years 3, 4 & 5 to experience Google Expeditions on Thursday 19th January 2017. Google Expeditions is a piece of virtual reality software that is used on headsets, allowing children to experience thousands of different environments from the confort of their classroom. If you would like more information about Google Expeditions, please visit the website below:
On the day your child will have a 30-minute time slot in their classes where they will get to experience Google Expeditions. If you are not happy for your child to take part, then please contact your child’s class teacher by Tuesday 17th January 2017.

Dear Parent / Guardians,
The PACT Child Safety Team aims are to ensure that our schools have the most rigorous safeguarding systems and procedures. Keeping the children safe is our number one priority.
Last term we have covered the topic PREVENT. If you would like information on PREVENT and top tips to keep your child safe please visit our school website and check out our Child Safety link. We will be revisiting this topic again for parents and children and will continue to keep staff abreast with current changes and training.
We would like to introduce our safeguarding topic for the Spring term.
Child Sexual Exploitation
During the Spring term the Child Safety Group will be delivering information for parents and talking to the children about positive relationships, online safety and how they can continue to keep themselves safe. Please spend a few moments to read through our guidance linked below on spotting the signs of CSE.\
