Rocket Seeds!

Class Beech are our Space Scientists and are taking part in Tim Peake's Rocket Seed experiment.  This is a national school's project and we are very lucky to have been selected as a school to participate in this.  Please feel free to pop in and view their 'experiment.'

Nut and Food Allergies 

Please be aware that we have children at school with nut and food allergies.  Please do not include any nuts or nut containing foods (e.g. Nutella) in your child's snack or lunch.  Help us to keep everyone safe.

Derbyshire Healthy Schools

 We are working in partnership with the team at Derbyshire Health Promoting Schools to gain full accreditation as a Derbyshire Healthy School.  Recent sessions have include work around

  • oral hygiene
  • germs and personal hygiene
  • exercise and healthy choices
  • water - and the importance of water in our diet.

If you have any questions, please contact Jen Chapman who is leading this project, along with our School Council.

 

Online Safety

The pupils all took part in e-safety week and safer internet day this month and were asking some very interesting questions.  This national event is very important and helps us to ensure that our pupils are being helped to stay safe both at school and at home.  A great many resources are available that you can use with your child and we ask parents to take time out with their children to explore the issues relating to online safety carefully. 

E-safety in the Computing Curriculum

The introduction of the Computing curriculum in England aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding and skills to use information and communication technology creatively and purposefully. A key aspect of this lies in being digitally literate. Online technologies play a huge role and so providing a broad and balanced e-safety education at each key stage is vital to ensuring that pupils can navigate the online world safely and positively.
