As part of 'Safeguarding Awareness Week' in school this week, we have focused our attentions on 'Road Safety'. This is really important to us as a staff Team, as we have a busy local community, a busy main road at the bottom of the school drive and a busy drive too. We try to cater for the needs of the school community, but we also need to be ensuring the children are safe at all times, hence the focus this week!
We wtached a number of vidoes in Assembly this week, all designed to point out the dangers on the road and how we all must treat roads with care. We sang along to the 'Stop, look, listen, THINK' anthem and it has been lovely to hear children using this at drop off and collection times, as they cross the drive!
Team AC and Team SG enjoyed a visit to Barnsley Museums, which was great as so many children said they had never vsitied a museum before...a new life experience!
Team DB have visited Wombwell Library also this week, to see what is on offer there!
We also welcomed a visit from Mrs Oliver this week, our Chair of Governors. She had a walk through school and spoke to the children and staff, as we celebrated 'Feel Good Friday'!
Well done to the following Teams for their attendance this last week:
Team EO - 97.9%
Team SG - 98.6%
Whole School - 95.7%

Mrs Watson (PSHCE Leader) had us all organised with planning and activities and our School Council had met previously to get Children in Need Day all planned out for us! We celebrated the end of our learning about kindness this week on Friday's Children in Need day, where we all wore it spotty! The children looked amazing!
Throughout the course of the week, whether in learning time or in Assemblies, our children showed a rel appreciation of our school and how we have a zero tolerence to bullying. The children spoke wih confidence about how we are a 'telling' school and will always tackle any behaviours which are not OK.
We also enjoyed seeing more parents in school to our UKS2 Maths Workshop this week with Mrs Firth and Mrs Bamforth. We enjoyed seeing so many parents at the second Parental Meeting evening this week too - thank you for supporting your children and the school.
