Next Meeting Friday 30th Nov 2018



Dear Parent/Carer,

The NSPCC’s Speak out. Stay safe. programme is visiting our school to make sure our pupils have the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse.

I’m pleased to tell you that we will be working with the NSPCC, who’ll be delivering their Speak out. Stay safe. programme on  11th October 2018. This is a nationwide programme for every primary-school-aged child in the UK and Channel Islands. With the help of their friendly mascot Buddy, they’ll be presenting an assembly to the children in our school.

“NSPCC has helped me to build the confidence to tell people about my worries and problems.” Child’s feedback.

If you would like any more information about the Speak out. Stay safe. programme you can come in to speak to me or visit the NSPCC website

Talking PANTS with your children

The NSPCC’s work in schools will help encourage conversations about staying safe – and they have a number of child-friendly materials to help you carry on the conversation afterwards. That includes ‘Talk PANTS’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse – without using scary words or even mentioning sex.

The guide uses the rules of PANTS to teach children that their body belongs to them and them alone. You can find out more and download the free resources at

Emotional Literacy- ELSA


Working on pupil Wellbeing

Dear Parents and Carers,

We understand just how important Wellbeing is for our children and for us as adults.
Wellbeing is the  focus of our School Development Target 1.

One strategy to develop some children as rounded people and active members of our community is the delivery of ELSA.

Mrs Lloyd is already trained in ELSA. School is investing time and effort in training a second ELSA, Mrs Hines.


Introduction to ELSA – What is ELSA?


ELSAs are emotional Literacy support assistants working in schools.

– help children recognise, understand and manage emotions to increase success
– plan and deliver individual ( and small group) support programmes
– receive training and supervision from education psychologists.

ELSAs with support of the parents and school, provide interventions helping to meet the needs of pupils in our school.  Interventions are planned to last 5 weeks to 1 term in length.


What are the benefits to the school?
ELSA can make a difference to help children feel supported,

to develop greater self- awareness, to interact more successfully and manage better in school.


You can find out more about ELSAs at

School Council Focus- Know Your Rights!

All children have rights. These rights are the things that children need to be safe, healthy and happy. The United Nations has a list of all the rights that children have. This list is called the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, or UNCRC for short.

Our School Council, have been working on some of these rights. Please take some time to have a look at the display in the main hall.

Autumn Term

This term we will be working on Article 29

Your right to become the best that you can be.

and Article 6

You have the right to life and to grow up to be healthy.

This work will be underpinned by Jesus’ call to be Loving and Compassionate*
