Mental Health Awareness Week 17.05.24

Dear Families

Well done Year 6 and the brilliant teaching team!

What a week for our BRILLIANT Year 6 children! Each and everyone of them truly showed our school value of WORK HARD and tried their very best in each and every single SAT paper. I am so very proud of them – well done Year 6, you did it! A special mention must also go to all of the teachers and support staff who prepare the children so wonderfully for these tests, thank you to each and everyone of you and a special mention to Mrs Heavens for organising it all whilst teaching!

Mental Health Week

This week is National Mental Health week and Mrs Roberts planned lots of amazing things for us to do throughout the week from Relaxation sessions to lessons where we all learnt about how to care for our mental health.

On Tuesday, Mrs Roberts organised an assembly which was about the importance of Mental Health, including the fact that we all have Mental Health, all feelings including happiness and calm are a part of Mental Health. We looked closely at the signs of anxiety and discussed strategies to help us when we feel anxious.

It was lovely to see so many children in green today which was to raise awareness of The Mental Health Foundation. You can make a donation here.

Here is a reminder of who our Mental Health First Aiders are in school:

Mrs Roberts
Mrs Jutla
Miss Ferrier
Neil (Green class)

Please remember that the Nest Natter is open on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday for those who need support with their Mental Health. Children are welcome to come into a safe place to talk and… natter. This is all part of our personal development offer to your children and our staff.

Sunny Weather… Label clothes and bottles please

As the weather is beginning to improve, please ensure that your child has applied adequate, long-lasting sun cream in the morning and has a (named) sunhat in school. Please also make sure your child’s water bottle is named so that it doesn’t get misplaced.


Thank you to everyone who has completed the parent survey so far – the feedback has been incredibly useful. If you haven’t already done so you can by clicking on this link. The closing date is 11.59pm on 20th May.

Just to let you know, that there will be a special edition of the newsletter which will go out on Friday 5th July to coincide with the new classes for next year and we will also report on the findings of the survey and future, exciting developments for our school.

Finally, it seems amazing to think that next week is our final week of Summer 1 and we are into the last half term of the academic year. We have so many things planned like our Summer Fete, Sports Days, Specialist Unit summer show and Year 6’s production of…. ANNIE the music (jazz hands at the ready)!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
