about yourself: It might be that you are kind and help your friends, you like to make people laugh or maybe you keep trying even if you find something difficult. We all have different things that make us who we are. If you notice something that makes your friend or classmate unique, let them know: It can feel really nice when you receive a compliment, it can also feel pretty great giving one too! Next time you are part of a group: have a think about how you might all be different – whilst we are all similar in lots of ways, we are also interested in and good at different things.

nternet safety week 2018: In EWS we are celebrating this all week to help raise awareness and inform pupils how to be safe online and the meaning of digital empathy. Each year group have learnt about an issue within this area during form time covering themes on cyberbullying, what is the digital footprint/ sexting/ online grooming/ consequences of using social media and mental wellbeing and online safety. Our cybermentors are present in the bubble every lunchtime to support pupils and they delivered an assembly to each year group this week. As parents and carers you too can take part in internet safety by watching the following clip and discussing with your child the importance of being safe and healthy when online:

Closing date 26th February It’s back! The Design a Bookmark Competition!! Every year new pupils are given a bookmark to welcome them to the Library. We would like the students to design one for the new students starting next year. The design should be bright and colourful and have a slogan to inspire reading.
