Anti Bullying Week
Anti-Bullying Week was launched with us wearing odd socks to show that it is ok to be different. We have explored different kinds of bullying and that this has no place in our school. Over the week we have been exploring how to be a good friend and how children can reach out if they have any concerns.
Local PCSOs having a chat with children over lunchtime
Children were inspired when Jaydon Paddock came into school to speak to them about his career as a gymnast.

After a Q&A session with the whole school, classes took part in a sponsored workshop with Jaydon which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
