Our children in Mrs Dyde’s and Mrs Walker’s class really enjoyed our mental health training experience with the One Goal team a few weeks ago.

Today our children in Reception, year 1,2 and 3 had SCARF PSHE sessions with Harold the giraffe and Rachel and Jess. There was lots of laughter and learning throughout the school! After school we had our first Healthy Eating parent session at 3pm which was brilliant, our lovely cook provided taste testers of various foods, some healthy biscuits and juice which were enjoyed by all. Everyone who attended received a family activity book to take home and the feedback was really positive. We will be running another in the Spring.

Anti-Bullying, by Mrs Muddy

Date: 16th Nov 2021 @ 8:08pm

Dear Parents/Carers
Today we have explored what is bullying and how we can work together to prevent it in school. We have used the Anti-Bullying Alliance resources which I have been sharing over the last few days. I have attached the class PowerPoint and the activity we will be doing in class, maybe you could complete this together at home too.
We have also watched Andy and the Odd Socks song which is really catchy!
Please let me know if you have any thoughts or feedback about this or any of the online safety and pastoral information that I share (please get in touch via my school email address senco@alsagerhighfields.cheshire.sch.uk). I welcome any feedback so that we can work together for the best outcomes for all our children.
Thank you
Mrs Henshall

Anti Bullying, by Mrs Muddy

Date: 13th Oct 2021 @ 11:42am

Dear parents/carers
I have attached the link for an assembly video we are watching this week in Key Stage 2 (years 3 - 6) which was created and shared by the Diana Award to highlight the importance of standing together to support each other and to work together to stop bullying. It talks about Anti Bullying Ambassadors which is something we will be developing and working on during Anti Bullying week, which is November 15th, as it links with our school council and our junior safeguarding team.
 
It talks about your '5 people support network' which follows on from our helping hands discussions we have had previously in assemblies where we drew our hand and wrote someone on each finger that we felt we could talk to if we needed some help. 
We have included the link so that you can watch it again with your children if you would like to. The key message is that our anti bullying work is more than just one week in November, we work together every day to stop any bullying in our school. 
Thanks
 
Mrs Henshall

How to set up parental controls for Android phones and iPhone apps - #WakeUpWednesday

NOS-Logo-Trademark-WuW.png

Information from National Online Safety

Some adults tend to ignore the parental controls on their smartphone, because they expect them to be hard to understand and complicated to set up – but actually it’s surprisingly simple! This #WakeUpWednesday, we’ve produced step-by-step guides to help parents adjust these settings to block unsuitable games and apps from their child’s iPhone or Android smartphones.Whether a young person plays games and enjoys apps on their own phone or borrows a family member’s, it’s worth spending some time reviewing the parental controls on that device. Our guides walk you through the process, to help reduce the chances of children downloading and using apps or games which aren’t appropriate for their age group.
