Newsletter - Week beginning Monday February 25th 2019

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

EDUCATIONAL VISITS NEXT WEEK

We have educational visits for Years R and 2 next week. We are still short of volunteers for these visits. If you can help on either or both visits please see your child’s teacher. We have currently only received 42% of contributions for the Y2 HMS Victory and 44 % for the YR Hilliers’ Arboretum visit. If you can contribute to the cost of these valuable experiences we would be very grateful. You can pay on line in the usual way.

 

SAFEGUARDING

As I am sure many of you are aware safeguarding is always our top priority. As part of our curriculum to educate children to learn how they can help to keep themselves safe we have an age appropriate assembly from the NSPCC. This will take place in March. Please read the following information about the NSPCC:

 

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.

The NSPCC, the UK’s leading children’s charity, will be leading an assembly from their Speak out. Stay safe programme on Monday March 18th. 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. It is all at an age appropriate level. By the end of their visit, we hope our children will feel more empowered – knowing how they can speak out and stay safe.

If you would like any more information about the NSPCC Speak out. Stay safe programme, including frequently asked questions, you can find it on the NSPCC website: nspcc.org.uk/schools.

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 ‘The Underwear Rule’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse – without using scary words.

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 nspcc.org.uk/pants

If you’d like to know more about the NSPCC’s work, or take a look at the wide range of information and advice which is available for parents and carers, please visit their website nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/
