Internet Safety Coffee Morning Parent Handout 07.02.19

Please find attached the Parent Handout from the Internet Safety Coffee Morning.

 

Safer Internet Day 2019 

A big thank you to Mr Gough who provided a fabulous Internet Safety session with parents this week in school.   The session was attended by a small number of parents who found it really valuable (see testimonials below).   I will ask Mr Gough to re-run this in the future in the hope that more families access it. Mr Gough is a trained CEOPambassador (Child Exploitation Online Protection) and is here to support any parents with individual queries if ever they have them.

 

Parent A

I attended the above workshop hosted by Mr Gough on the 5th February. 
I found the presentation and content fabulous, Mr Gough talked us through the dangers of apps, games, privacy settings, new apps which are targeted at the teenage  years, but also the positives on the internet and how it can enrich children’s learning and knowledge base. 
I can’t thank you enough for providing this workshop for parents to discuss their own experiences and help others. 

I highly recommend that all parents attend this or similar workshops as it was so beneficial to myself and the others parents who attended. 

Parent B 

Just wanted to let you know how useful I found the meeting this morning and ask if you can pass on my thanks to Mr Gough for presenting the information to us. 
Also thank you to the Year 3 children who demonstrated their skills on the Purple Mash website for us. 
I really feel I came away from the session with a greater understanding of the potential risks but also useful advice in keeping my child as safe as possible when online.

School Crossing Patrol 22.01.19

As you are aware the County Council has been considering a number of proposals to help close a budget shortfall for next year, this has included moving to a community funded school crossing patrol service.

We have been notified by Staffordshire County Council that, after listening to public feedback, and successfully securing additional Government funding, that they feel this is not the right time to stop funding the service and therefore they will not be taking this option any further.

We would like to thank all those who supported the campaign and who replied to the online questionnaire before the Christmas holiday.

Charity Concert at The Royal School (22.01.19)

Please see attached information regarding a Charity Concert at The Royal School Wolverhampton.

It is on behalf of the Reverend Mike Fox who is involved in the organisation of a charity concert at The Royal School on Sunday 10 February featuring Margaret Fingerhut in aid of Wolverhampton City of Sanctuary.

It is an opportunity to hear an international pianist locally - she is giving her services free and is taking the concert around the country where there are cities of sanctuary who wish to take up her offer; all proceeds will go to support asylum seekers and refugees via the local City of Sanctuary.  The project is on her website: 

https://www.margaretfingerhut.co.uk/far-from-the-home-i-love

The main activity at the Wolverhampton City of Sanctuary is to run a drop-in every week on Wednesday where asylum seekers gather for fellowship and support.   Financial assistance is provided  to those who are destitute and need special care; they can also access legal advice from a solicitor.

Yr 4 Forest School Blog 20.12.18

Year 4 Forest School 2018

Year Four have participated in their Forest School sessions with enthusiasm and enjoyment. They have adventured through  World War Two, set up different camps, learnt how to set a campfire safely, become experts on shelter building and made all sorts of creations with natural materials including wood, clay and lots of mud! We ended our adventures with a feast, budgeted by the children, which was cooked on the campfire and then an afternoon of Christmas craft making outside. The children have all progressed with a wide range of skills including problem solving, creative thinking, team work, communication and just getting on with each other. Well done Year Four!  

Special mentions to:

Zara - amazing ideas and creativity,

Brooke - for throwing herself into everything and giving 100%

Aden - brilliant problem solving, 

Nicolas - working hard to improve his team work and communication, 

Finley- showing maturity and working well in all areas,

Bradley and Luke - great ideas and problem solvers,

 Ettie-Belle,  Miley and Hattie - lots of good ideas and working hard as part of a team. 

Merry Christmas everybody!

SIMS Parent Lite App Live 14.12.18

To enable parents to use a secure method of updating personal data for parents/carers and students we are introducing an app that can be accessed on any computer, tablet or mobile phone called SIMS Parent Lite.

Priority 1 parents who live at the child's address will receive a letter & an invitation/activation email from the school with children's reports today.  The letter introduces and explains how to get started with the Parent Lite App (if you have provided school with an email address).  The slip on the bottom of the letter should be returned with any changes to email addresses or to request other parents (with parental responsibility) to be sent an activation letter.  Parents must be either Priority 1 or 2 and have parental responsibility to be able to access this App.

The SIMS Parent Lite App can be accessed online at www.sims-parent.co.uk or by clicking the link in the activation email.  If you have any further queries or to email an activation request please contact Mrs Currall in the school office.This email address is being protected from spambots.
