Helping parents/carers to keep children safe online

Many children were lucky enough to have received exciting presents for Christmas which offer them access to the internet and the online world.

As part of our commitment to keeping children safe, prior to Christmas we sent a link to all parents/carers for parental guides to many of these devices, just to offer a little more insight into how they are used, and also how they could be a risk if not managed properly.

Over the course of the year, we will share information on different online platforms and devices, including the necessary age restrictions, so parents and carers can be informed and continue to support their children with ways to stay safe.

Help with broadband and phone costs


Help with broadband and phone costs

To continue to support a number of our wonderful families, we are pleased to signpost you towards the Ofcom website who are providing details of ways in which some families may be entitled to reduced prices for their broadband and phone.

Ofcom state:

“Social tariffs are cheaper broadband and phone packages for people claiming Universal Credit, Pension Credit and some other benefits. Some providers call them ‘essential’ or ‘basic’ broadband.

They’re delivered in the same way as normal packages, just at a lower price. Amid rising living costs, Ofcom is encouraging companies to offer social tariffs to help customers on low incomes.”

For further information, to check your eligibility, and to see if this is right for you, please follow this link to the Ofcom website.


Celebrating World Book Day


Celebrating World Book Day

Our wonderful children celebrated the magic of reading this week as we marked World Book Day.

Books and reading play such an important part in children's development and we had a great time finding out about new stories and new non-fiction books.

Children were also invited to bring in books for a 'Book Swap' where they could pass the books which they have already enjoyed to another child - and then choose a new one to take home.

Our younger pupils (Rec-Year 2) also enjoyed a theme of 'Bedtime Stories' and came to school in their pyjamas!
