Pupil Voice
Pupil Panel Children were asked about their new project: Mental Health.
Kaylin said, “Wellbeing is looking after ourselves and making sure we are happy, how we are living and if we are healthy. We learnt about big feelings & little feelings. Big feelings affect how we behave and we might need a friend. Little feelings we can help ourselves, like taking a shower and relaxing or going for a KFC.”
Naomi said, “We have been learning what to do if we are not happy and who we should tell. If it’s a big feeling they we would need to tell our parents, or a person we trust, if it’s a little feeling it’s not such a big deal. We have made a worry box for each class as it was voted to have a new one in Pupil Panels.”
 
School Lockers
Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

After school clubs will be running from Tuesday 23 April 2019.  If you would like to your child to attend, please contact the school office.
