This week in school our pupils have been exploring E-Safety and some of the issues around staying safe when using technology and the internet. This included some excellent assemblies and workshops provided by our colleagues at Unique Voice.
We know that E-Safety is a cause for concern for many of our Parents and Carers so have attached a copy of the presentation on the topic delivered by Mrs McCorry at the Community Partnership meeting. The NSPCC Net Aware website is also a great tool and allows you to review the suggested minimum and, function and security of a site, app or game to help you support your children in staying safe online.
This week has seen the pupils perform their Christmas stories and Christmas Concerts. The children were fantastic, singing, acting, dancing and narrating their hearts out, and the turnout for every performance has been amazing. A lot of hard work has gone in to making these shows such a success, so a big thank you to all involved.
Pupils who have received three Golden Ticket enjoyed tea/squash and cake with Mr Rodeck today. All these children have been wonderful adverts for the school’s values of Collaboration, Aspiration, Respect and Endeavour. Well done!
Our first ever ‘Our Heritage’ celebration event, held at Lockleaze Road on Friday evening, was a huge success. Our pupils, their families and friends came along to celebrate each others’ heritages and histories. With more than, 50 languages and 40 nationalities in the school, our diverse cultural backgrounds were represented though music, cultural performances, a fashion show and exhibitions of learning as well as the delicious food served at the Food Festival. We can’t say a big enough thank you to all who were involved for making it such a joyful and memorable event.
We can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Last week, as part of our work with *Enabling Enterprise, children from Sycamore class visited JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle) a property management company to learn more about enterprise and the world of work. The children learned about the different roles in construction and development, went on a tour and then took part in a housing challenging, presenting their ideas to the group to at the end of the day. The trip was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 5 to impress and put their Staying Positive and Problem Solving skills to the test with the support from professional business volunteers.
A massive thank you to volunteers from JLL who worked alongside our pupils engaging them about their jobs and making the day such a great opportunity.
*Enabling Enterprise is an award-winning not-for-profit social enterprise. Their mission is to equip young people with the skills, experiences and aspirations they need to succeed in life. You can read more about our pupils’ day on the Enabling Enterprise website.

Here are Year 2 taking part and preparing to be the mathematicians and computer engineers of tomorrow!
