World Mental Health Day
Today, we have celebrated World Mental Health Day. The theme of the day has been 'Mental Health is a universal right' and the children have completed a range of activities to help them to understand this. We focused on the idea of being kind, not only to others, but to yourself too.
The children played kindness bingo throughout the day which included things such as 'say hello to someone new' and 'write down 3 things you love about you.' All of the children finished the day by writing themselves a kindness postcard, remembering a time where they had done something great.

Reception Autumn 1 Welcome Letter
Please see below a letter from our Trust explaining that our school is NOT affected by the recent reports of Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC).
As the warm weather is still with us, we need to continue with sun safety.
Please provide your child with a named sun hat and ensure that they have a named plastic water bottle (with sports cap opening).
If your child requires sun cream, please ensure they apply it before school. If you wish them to reapply sun cream before breaktimes, lunchtimes or outdoor PE, please provide them with a named bottle. Staff are not allowed to apply sun cream to children, so please ensure that your child can apply it themselves.
