Next week is National Anti-Bullying Week. During the week the children will explore what bullying is and what to do if they are being bullied/see bullying. They will discuss who they can go to if they think they/or someone they know are being bullied, as well as how we all play a part even as a bystander. The children in Key Stage 2 will also cover what is meant by online bullying and what to do if an individual experiences this. In addition, on Friday 20th November we will be holding Odd Socks Day where children and adults are invited to wear odd socks to school to celebrate what makes us all unique.

Term 2 and Christmas time in school is always a fun  and exciting time in school. Despite the challenges we face this year, we still intend to celebrate this Christian festival—although slightly differently! We shall send out more information shortly but please be assured you will still get to enjoy a performance or 2 (but virtually!)

We are unable to hold our Christmas Fair this year but the PTFA are still keen to raise funds for the school. We shall be holding a non-school uniform day on Friday 27th November. On that day we ask that you ‘re-gift’ a gift. This means sending in an unwanted gift you’ve received so it can be used in our Christmas Hampers. We shall then be selling raffle tickets, giving you the opportunity to win a hamper. Unwanted gifted items (only brand new please) may include toiletries, toys/games, chocolates etc. These items will be ‘quarantined’ before adding them to the hampers. I thank you in advance for your donations.

Finally, thank you for continuing to adhere to our changing guidelines. We are continually updating our risk assessments and including links on our website to updated DFE guidance. Of course we shall inform straight away of anything we need you to know/action.

Have a good weekend.

Mrs Crittenden
