To all our teachers, I would like to extend my thanks to you for the incredible commitment that you have shown to your vocation this academic year. I know the challenges of the pandemic have been huge but your resilience and hard work has been greatly appreciated.
I would like to say thank you to all of the parents and carers who have helped to support school children at home, giving up their time to ensure that children kept up with their school work, often whilst trying to work from home themselves.
I hope that next year both pupils and teachers will be able to enjoy a normal school year, but for now I would like to wish all of you a wonderful summer holiday.
SUMMER STRANGER DANGER REMINDER
With the long Summer holiday fast approaching, the police have asked us to issue stranger danger advice to you, to share with your children to help keep them safe when they are out and about.
STRANGER DANGER PREVENTION ADVICE
Here are some simple steps you can take to make sure you stay safe on the street:
- never go off on your own with a stranger, take things from them or get in a care with them.
- make sure you tell your parents where you are.
- if someone scares you, or makes you feel uncomfortable, go somewhere safe, which could be at your home, or a police station.
- remember to tell someone what has happened straight away.
- if you have Snapchat, check the settings on the new location sharing feature, SNAP MAPS, including details about how to change your settings and tips for staying safe.
