Our Vision

We believe that our children should have the aspiration and opportunity to ‘Live life in all its fullness’ and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’.
New this week…

Next week our Year 6 children will be taking part in SATs, we wish them the very best of luck.  Parents of Year 6 children please check that you have received an information email from Mr Anson and confirmed attendance at breakfast club.
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
A huge thank you to the wonderful group of parents from across both schools who came together on Tuesday evening to help as we review our federation policy on RSE.
Parents are recognised as children's primary educators for Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), yet many feel unprepared.

to access some useful information and resources for parents and carers. They are designed to support you in helping your child at each stage, to become more aware of themselves and others, to help them navigate the emotional and physical changes that take place during puberty, as well as learning about sex in the context of safe, loving relationships.
Health & Safety
Please may we remind all families that grapes need to be cut in half lengthways to prevent the risk of choking and to meet health and safety requirements.
School Uniform
A friendly reminder that jewellery is not part of our school uniform.  Please can all jewellery, including friendship bracelets, remain at home.  Thank you for supporting us in keeping our children safe.
As the weather has improved please can we ensure that children come to school with a sun hat, wearing sunscreen.  Don’t forget a waterproof coat, just in case.
Year 4 MTC check
As we approach the national multiplication check for year 4s, please may we remind parents of children in year 4 that they need to practising their times tables on TTRS at least 5x per week. This will really support them with their confidence and fluency. Thank you.

Safeguarding, Health and Wellbeing Updates…
Message from Autism Central
Autism Central will be running a series of drop-in parent/carer support sessions in Ripon over the next couple of months, please see the attached flyer and the information below for more details:
Our parent coffee morning sessions are for parents and carers of children who display traits associated with, or have a diagnosis of, a neurodevelopmental condition including: autism, sensory processing, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). A diagnosis is not needed.  These free drop-in sessions will provide a safe space for parents and carers to meet others in a similar situation and provide the opportunity for peer support, enabling parents to support each other, share experiences and ideas. These groups are facilitated by a member of the Autism Central team. The aim is to provide a supportive and empowering environment for our parents and carers.
