We are holding a Dyslexia Coffee Morning on Wednesday 22nd November 2017 from 9.00-10.00am in the Junior Hall.
The coffee morning will be led by Emma Foster from Pupil and School Support service. This is a great opportunity for you to understand what dyslexia is and the identification process involved. Emma will also be able to answer any questions you may have about dyslexia.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Please come to the main reception.

I am writing to you to invite you to our next Online Safety Parent Workshop. Following concerns from parents and teachers, this half terms focus will be on:
• Children playing age restricted games – what do the age ratings mean?
• Child friendly search engines – how can I keep my child safe when searching?
During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice on topics surrounding the age restriction of games, films and websites.
The Online Safety Parent Workshop will take place in the Junior Hall from 3:00pm to 3:30pm on Monday 20th November.
This is a fantastic opportunity to ask for advice, put your mind at ease or just enquire as to what you can do to keep your child safe online at home.

Dear Parents/ Guardians,
I am writing to inform you that next week is anti-bullying week across the PACT. We will be raising children’s awareness of bullying and what this means. The children will take part in activities throughout the week that will be led by the Pastoral Team. The children will also have an assembly that outlines what bullying is and what they can do if they are concerned about bullying happening in school.
Below we have outlined some information for parent’s on what bullying is and signs that may indicate your child is being bullied.
• Bullying is when someone intimidates or causes harm to another person on purpose. The victims of bullying can be verbally, physically or emotionally assaulted and are often threatened and made to feel frightened and feel they cannot stop the person’s behaviour.
• The behaviour is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.
• Cyber Bullying is any form of bullying which takes place online or through smartphones or tablets. It includes harassment, sending of abusive messages, use of extreme and abusive language, hacking (accessing details illegally) impersonating another person as well as excluding others from social group chats.
Friday 17th November is Children in Need Day and for a donation of £1 your child can wear non-uniform to raise funds for such a worthy cause.
The theme for the day is to come to school dressed in SPOTS!
As the weather is likely to be cold please make sure your child brings a coat to wear at break/lunch times, and sensible shoes (no heelies or heels).

Trust Pastoral Leader
