We hope you have enjoyed the lessons that your teachers have put on Showbie this week, and we know that a lot of you have had great feedback for your work.

Some classes have been trialling “live” lessons through the Showbie app.  We are delighted to announce that these will be rolled out to all classes from next week.  Information will be sent out and please remember to check Showbie for updates.

Home Learning

We still have a number of iPads available that our Y2 – Y6 children can loan from the academy to support with their home learning using Showbie.

We are hoping to have devices ready for the younger children in school at some point next week.  Watch out for a message on Facebook.

Online Safety

Please follow this link to a guide for parents on Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) reporting that also provides lots of useful information on online safety:

There is also a quick link straight to the CEOP website at the bottom of our academy website page. 

Critical Worker Places

If you require a critical worker place in the academy please contact the academy office. Places must be booked by Monday at 12 noon to start the following week to allow us to plan numbers and keep staff and children as safe as possible.

Mental Health Week

Children’s Mental Health Week 2021 is next week 1st -7th February.

Place2Be have announced that the theme is Express Yourself, and this year especially could support many children with their mental health.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

Here is a link with information and resources, including an assembly:
