NSPCC
The children completed their pupil questionnaires last Friday in school and should have brought home a booklet, ‘Simple Conversations to Keep Your Child Safe From Abuse’.  I appreciate abuse can be a difficult topic to discuss with a child but hopefully this guidance from the NSPCC will enable you to do it in an understandable and reassuring way.

Remember the NSPCC’s underwear rule:
P – privates are private
A – always remember your body belongs to you
N – no means no
T – talk about secrets that upset you
S – speak up someone can help

Road Safety
Last week I reminded parents that it falls to each one of us to act in a manner that keeps all our children safe when dropping off and picking up children.  I am disappointed to note a number of people continue to park in the bus stop or double park on the road putting our pupils in danger.  I ask all parents remember to park politely and urge you to pass this message on to grandparents, child-minders etc. who may also help out with the school run.

Sainsbury’s Active Kids
Remember to keep collecting the vouchers when shopping in Sainsbury’s and drop these in the collection box at reception.
