Monday saw the launch of our Safeguarding Week to coincide with Anti-bullying week, National Road Safety week and Children in Need. The children have been taking part in a variety of exciting activities to explore the different areas of keeping safe: from staying safe online and on the roads to talking about anti-bullying and friendship and also how to help others.
On Monday we had a special visitor in school to deliver Respect workshops for all of Key Stage 2 to explore anti-bullying and friendship.
On Thursday we were very lucky to have Olympic stunt cyclists visit to perform a cycling stunt show for the children. The cyclists discussed their experience of being bullied and opened up discussions with the children about friendships and the theme of bullying, offering advice on how to deal with situations. They inspired the children and encouraged them to pursue their dreams and all the children really enjoyed the show.
On Friday we celebrated Children in Need. Our School Council Communications Team organised Pudsey colouring and design your own Pudsey ears competitions plus hosted a cake sale during playtime and after school to raise funds for this worthwhile cause. We also had a non-uniform day where the children came dressed in spots and Year 5 organised games for children to play at breaktime to further help raise money.
We raised a fabulous total of £376.56!
Thank you to all the children and families who supported this event.
PC Godfrey came in to talk to the children about keeping safe on the roads as the dark nights are drawing in. He talked about the importance of seat belts, wearing reflective clothing at night and how to be a safe cyclist.
