Dear Parents/Carers,


Rights of the child : October - Article 25

Right to meet with friends and join groups


Parents' evening will commence next week on Monday and Tuesday, I trust parents and carers have made arrangements to meet with staff. Telephone consultations are also an option should parents /carers need this option . I am sure you are all looking forward to receiving feedback on your child's progress.  

We are looking forward to our Harvest celebrations next week. As you know our main celebration will be held in Tabernacle on 26th October at 10am.  We are very grateful to our Tabernacle Friends for welcoming us, once again.  If you are able; don't forget to bring in any tins/toiletries for the North Gower Food Hub , we would be grateful to receive these.


A special young lady …

On Sunday 29th October at 17.05pm Izzy will be appearing on CountryFile for a special episode called 

Ramble for Children in Need 2023. Please give it a watch. We are so incredibly proud of her.

Shoe Box Appeal

Polite reminder that the decorated and filled shoeboxes will be collected from the school on 8th November.  Perhaps this could be a project for children over the half term holidays.

I will be decorating mine and filling with useful items for a small child. Remember items can be inexpensive. We are always grateful for your support towards this incredible charity. 


Social media 

It has been brought to my attention that some pupils in Y4,5 and Y6 have set up Whatsapp groups and are apparently using inappropriate language .


Please can I remind parents/carers the school asserts the following guidance:  


* The minimum age to use WhatsApp’s is 16 +.

* Pupils should NOT be adding contacts and creating groups for the purposes of sharing offensive posts with pupils.  

* Passing on offensive material is considered legally to be on a par with initiating it.

* Making multiple groups/ multiple Admins is inadvisable at best.  

*Should parents feel that their child is emotionally responsible enough to use apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook and games like Fortnite etc, despite being considerably underage, we advise that you discuss this with your child and agree boundaries.  


Please be assured that your child’s emotional well- being is important to us and we are keen to work in partnership with parents on a range of digital concerns. During the year several E-safety lessons are taught and in addition the school police service has a teaching programme including such topics .  




Our key message  

Whilst we are duty bound to pass on any offensive material that is shared with us, our role is NOT to police the use of Social Media amongst pupils outside school.”
