Week beginning 19th February 2018

WB 19.2.18

Building on from the success of our BRECK workshops last week, we had Internet Safety Day on Tuesday. The children took part in a range of activities and discussions about how to stay safe whilst using the internet including appropriateness of what they should and what they should not write on various Apps or social forums. Always good to remember, once it is out there, it is there forever and the message is clear – never write something that you would not say to that person’s face. Some great discussions ensued, particularly in the upper key stages. Well done to all.


On Wednesday, Class 8 delivered their assembly to the school about the Winter Olympics. Many excellent messages given. Thank you to those of you who came. Well done children, we certainly have some aspiring actors in our midst.


Massive shout out to our girls football team: Croydon Champions! We are now the Croydon representatives in the School Games Level 3 Finals in March. Well done girls, Ms Langan and Coach Callum – proud! The girls netball team took part in the first of a 3 day tournament on Thursday- well done to all of those that took part. On Friday, the mixed football team played against Beaumont, it was a very close match and our team played with excellent spirit, determination and at times, tolerance. Well done to all – the final score was 2-1 to Beaumont.


We had an excellent Fun Day today to celebrate our good Ofsted. It was great to see our children playing games with each other and enjoying each other’s company. Perfect timing as we now sprint into the half term holidays for a much deserved rest!

Weekly School Swimming Lessons: a message from Miss De Cruz

As we are now at the mid-point of the year, the swimming groups 1 & 2 will swop over. Group 2 will swim first, going forwards for the remainder of the school year. Please ensure your children have their swimming kits each week, several are regularly forgetting kits and as already communicated, children who do not have their costume will not be able to swim. Many thanks.

Swimmers are not allowed to wear earrings or any jewellery for swimming for health and safety reasons. Please remove earrings on swimming days to save time and them getting lost. If you want your child to have her/his ears pierced, it is preferable that s/he waits till the beginning of the summer holidays. However, if it is urgent, then please tape up the ear with a plaster. If the plaster comes off, then your child will not be able to swim. Drowning Prevention Week is June 15-25th. From Monday 18th - Friday 22nd June, we will be swimming in our clothes, please bring in long sleeve tops and bottoms so the children can feel what it is like to be in the water with clothes on. We will remind you nearer the time.


Have a great half term and see you all on Monday 19th February.
