Safer Internet Day

On Tuesday, Oak class learned about Safer Internet Day. The theme this year is, ‘Inspiring Change’ and we discussed changes that can happen online and how they can sometimes make us feel unsafe e.g. strangers trying to speak to us, pop ups, scams and unkind messages.

We discussed how to deal with things that make us feel unsafe by always telling a trusted adult, blocking strangers and using privacy/parental lock settings and reporting any unkind messages we might receive. We then made internet safety posters to give other people advice on how to stay safe online.

Moments matter, attendance counts!

Moments matter, attendance counts!

The link between attendance and attainment is clear:

    In 2018/19, just 40% of persistently absent (PA) children in KS2 achieved expected KS2 standards, compared with 84% of pupils who were regular attenders.

    And 36% of PA children in KS4 got 9 to 4 in their English and maths GCSEs, also compared with 84% of regular attenders.1

And it's never too late to benefit from good attendance:

    More than half (54%) of pupils who were PA in Year 10 and then rarely absent in Year 11, passed at least 5 GCSEs, compared to 36% of pupils who were persistently absent in both years.

    But attendance is important for more than just attainment:

    Regular school attendance can facilitate positive peer relationships, which is a protective factor for mental health and wellbeing.

School Council

School Council

We held our school council elections this week, transforming Oak Class and the foyer into a polling 
station on Friday, complete with ballot papers and ballot boxes! The children voted for one boy 
and one girl to represent their class this year, demonstrating great maturity and respect for the 
democratic process.

Prior to the election, the children composed letters of application to express their interest in being considered for the role of student councillor. Shortlisted candidates were then given the opportunity to read their letters to the class to support the children’s decisions when casting their vote. 

We are extremely proud of every one of our children for their enthusiasm, commitment, respect and support for one another this week. They are superstars!
