Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 7th February 2020

7 February 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you to everyone who took part in our storytelling sessions this week. The children thoroughly enjoyed listening to a range of stories from parents and grandparents. Your participation is much appreciated.

Next Tuesday, we will be celebrating Safer Internet Day in school. This year’s theme is ‘Together for a better internet’. The children will be taking part in specific internet safety lessons and special assemblies. These sessions are designed to encourage children to openly discuss how they use the internet and to talk about strategies to stay safer online.

You can get involved by following this link for further information on:

  • Conversation starters
  • Family internet safety plan
  • Fun things to do
  • Top tips for parents

Please do not underestimate how much you and your child will benefit from having conversations about their safety in the online world.


I hope you have a great weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
