The event for parents on Wednesday 6th May was well received. Sharon Amensu was an excellent presenter and offered strategies to develop resilience in children to equip them for 21st Century living. By the end of this half term you will be able to view her slides and the handout from school on our website.
Mobile Phones (Extract from newsletter January 2014)
Mobile phone theft is currently the most frequent street crime and young children using a mobile phone on the way to, or from school, are consequently at risk. I am sure you will have discussed the safety issues surrounding your children’s use of mobile phones, and understand the need for some older children to be able to communicate their safety to parents. However, in consideration of the entire issue, I would request that parents return a signed letter explaining the need for their child to bring a phone to school. This will also help in making us aware of children having the responsibility of a mobile phone in school.
Further to this advice, we have now requested that all mobile phones brought to school should be submitted to the school office for safe keeping until collected at 3.30 p.m. by your child.
