NSPCC
NSPCC are visiting school on Thursday 26th January to speak in Assembly. The theme of the assembly will be Speak Out, Stay Safe. Each Key Stage will attend a NSPCC assembly and P6 and P7 will take part in a workshop. Pupils will receive information about how to keep themselves safe from harm and how to get help if they have any worries.

Safeguarding
We are currently updating our safeguarding procedures in school in line with new requirements. We would ask that if parents need to speak to a member of staff, they inform Dawn first, who will let the member of staff know. This allows us to have a record of everyone who is in our school building. We want to assure you that parents are always welcome in school and that we need to implement this to ensure the highest safety measures for your children. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Music Tuition
If your child receives tuition for a musical instrument school and you have opted to pay the fees termly, the next payment is now due. Parents can check with Dawn for amounts and if they need to pay.
