Our oceans matter, by Mrs Muddy

Date: 10th Mar 2023 @ 9:50pm

Today, Year 4 have really enjoyed completing some work for a competition to highlight the importance of caring for our oceans and reducing our plastic waste. They explored lots of facts and wrote about why 'Plastic is not fantastic' and why 'Our oceans matter'. Then they all wrote pledges for how they will help to protect our oceans in the future. The children made a watercolour background mixed with salt, to add texture and effect but also to replicate the salty ocean water.

Safeguarding Review, by Mrs Muddy

Date: 25th Feb 2023 @ 8:38pm

Last week we welcomed Kathryn and Becky from SCIES, safeguarding children in education settings team, to review our safeguarding practice throughout school. They met with Mrs Henshall, our Designated Safeguarding Lead and they spoke to many of our children including their lovely year 5 tour guides, our School Council and Junior Safeguarding Team, lots of adults in school and our parents too. At the end of the day, they spoke to our leadership team, Mrs Woollam, Mrs Henshall and Mrs Dyde to share their thoughts about the day and how we can continue to improve our safeguarding practice in school. 
They said they were very impressed with our safeguarding processes, that we ensure our children stay safe and that they are well cared for and listened to. They also said that our children were articulate, thoughtful and kind with wonderful manners which they observed throughout the day as they spent time in every area of our school. We already know this but it is always lovely when someone else visits our school and recognises this too. Well done to everyone for such fantastic feedback!
