Sierra Leone Visit
Mrs Havbro and Miss Sadler made a life changing visit to Sierra Leone in February. During their visit they worked with the teachers at Grafton Baptist School to develop their teaching strategies through a ‘critical thinking’ project. While they were there the British Council filmed them. Take a look at the film on the link below.
Mr Dangidi will be visiting our school at the end of the term.

Developing good bedtime routines.
Teresa from EFT will be offering a discussion group to help parents develop good bedtime routines for their children here on Tuesday 21st March 2017 at 1.30pm.
You will be discussing how to get your child into a good routine and the skills children need to do this and how to encourage your child to stay in their bed all night.
To book a place please call Teresa on 07961674055 or email her on TeresaP@educationfuturestrust.org
Dogs on Site
Please be aware that dogs are NOT allowed anywhere on site.
Please do not bring dogs onto the playground or tie them up at perimeter fences.
Remember apart from the obvious problems with dog excrement being trodden in by small children, many children find dogs extremely scary (even though you may know your dog is friendly).
We have also had reported instances where dogs have been aggressive towards each other and owners and children have been very alarmed and distressed.
The only exception to this will be registered assistance dogs.
Please let the office know if you own an assistance dog and need to bring it into school.
Please see below our new Attendance Newsletter:
It is vital your child attends school every day to maximise their learning.
There is direct evidence that high attenders achieve proportionally higher results than the children with low attendance or who are continually late. Please ensure your child is in school every day unless they are really unwell.
