We may think it is just normal for everyone to have access to Education but for many people around the world, this is not the case. Today, in our British Values assembly, we have thought about what it means to have an education and to consider those who are not allowed or able to access this. This is part of our work on Mutual Respect and Tolerance.
One of our pupils, Dima, has won a drawing competition for the charity Cakes For Heroes, which does brilliant work supporting really poorly children. Dima's picture has been turned into a wonderful embroidered mascot for these children.
Each week in our assemblies and our learning, we think about a range of themes: We have our Learning Muscles, which are part of our Growth Mindset philosophy to help us become better learners; In our Jigsaw PSHE lessons, we help ourselves and others to grow as people; We think about our British Values; We look at Religious festivals, Global Issues and Diversity on our Planet.
In today's Safeguarding Assembly, we have been thinking about all the people we could turn to for help in school. Whether it is a problem about school work, or a personal matter, there is always an adult we may talk to. We also spoke about Child Line, which is a brilliant service aimed at helping children.
Each term, we publish a curriculum map for each of our year groups. These give a summary of the different themes that are going to be covered in this term's curriculum. Listed by subjects, they give details of the areas that pupils are going to be studying. Click on our Curriculum Overview webpages to access individual phases/year groups and their thematic units. If you require any further detail, please ask a member of staff.

One of our Trust schools has made us aware that there is a new type of meme on Tik Tok where you are encouraged to do a specific Google search. One that is currently viral is “art of the zoo” or “art of zoo” – a staff member's son was on this and when she looked it up it showed very disturbing images of animal pornography. Please check what your children are looking at on social media.

Years 1 & 2 will arrive at school at 8.50am on the Back Playgrou
