Triple P Teen Parenting Programme

Hannah Smith - Thursday, April 21, 2016


The Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme) knows that all
parents have different needs. That’s why Triple P offers a
number of specialist programmes tailored to suit parents with very specific needs or circumstances.  A parent who attended, highly recommended the course because
“it helps you more as a parent because you feel calm and
prepared to deal with behaviours before they happen.”

Teen Triple P has been developed for parents of teenagers. Because it’s based on Triple P’s proven parenting strategies, it gives a way to deal with the kinds of teenage behaviour problems and issues that can make family life stressful.

The next session is on Wednesday 11th May 2016, at Angram Bank
Children’s Centre High Green, 12.30pm—2.30pm

Active Kids vouchers can be collected from 27th January until 3rd May at all Sainsbury’s stores, petrol stations and when ordering groceries online. As a school, we are collecting these vouchers to help us buy sports and cookery equipment for our pupils. You can hand in any vouchers to class teachers or the office, who will place them in our bright orange collecting box! The more we collect, the more we can buy!  Thank you for your continued support, it is much appreciated.


School Uniform Reminder

Hannah Smith - Friday, February 26, 2016


As a school, we want our pupils to take pride in being part of the school. We therefore promote the
wearing of a school uniform for all age groups. 

The recommended school uniform that we ask all parents to provide for their children consists of:

  •  * Navy or red polo shirt and navy sweatshirt or cardigan.
  •  * Grey, navy or black trousers/skirt (these should be appropriate for school; tracksuit bottoms or jeans are not recommended)
  •  * Black shoes (footwear should be appropriate and sensible for school. High heels, backless sandals or platform soles for example are not suitable)
  •  * Please note hooded jackets or coloured jackets should not to be worn in school.

During the winter months we ask that every child brings a suitable coat to school. We do take the children outside as much as possible so they need to be wrapped up to keep them warm. 

We also ask that KS2 pupils bring a pair of indoor pumps or slippers to change into.

Y5 Basketball Competition
A huge congratulations to the 8 Year 5 children who took part in the Hotshots basketball competition on Tuesday. There were some thrilling games played which had
parents and children alike on the edge of their seats. We made it out of our group with two wins and a closely fought draw before unfortunately, losing to the eventual winners in the semi-final. Well done to all the children who greatly enjoyed the event.
