Happy New Year! I hope you all had a good holiday.
We now welcome Mrs Grant and Miss Jackson to our team. Mrs Grant is working in the school office – you may have already seen her at the school gates – and is ready and willing to help you out. Miss Jackson is our new caretaker and although you may have not seen her around, she is already doing a fantastic job of improving our school and grounds.
Don’t forget our tea-time club is open to help you with childcare needs. It is open from 3pm to 6pm. There are 2 prices for tea-time club: up until 5pm it is £7.50 whereas after this it is £10. Children will get a light tea and drinks during this time. Please book your child in with the school office to avoid disappointment.
Don’t forget that Breakfast Club is now open from 7.30am. We have increased the cost to £4.00, but we still feel this is excellent value for money.
All welcome to our informal Coffee /Tea mornings (drink and natter). These are held every Tuesday after dropping your children off at School (8.45 till 10.00am). Under school age children welcome too as there are lots of toys for them to play with. Please join us in the Children’s Centre with Mrs Boyle supplying the drinks and biscuits.
Supporting Children online and with new devices:
Younger children need different advice and guidance than older children. Older children need different advice and guidance than teens. It can be really difficult keeping up with everything that is online and what risks and issues may affect children of different ages, so on these pages there is some age-related advice and guidance for parents and carers:
- Pre-school – https://www.internetmatters.org/advice/0-5/
- 6 – 10 year olds – https://www.internetmatters.org/advice/6-10/
Setting up new devices:
It can be difficult knowing all the different settings that are available on different devices to help protect children, this includes allowing or disallowing chat, friends, spending money, content filters and much more. On these pages you will find the details, as well as non-technical instructions, which will help you understand what is available to you and how to set up your child’s devices.
