 Digital Leaders Logo

We have joined a fantastic programme which enables us to develop a team of Digital Leaders in school. These children will help support their peers in school and become experts in internet safety and technology. We are very excited about the opportunities that this will provide the children.

We told the Year 5 classes about what being a Digital Leader would involve and asked the children to fill in an application form if they thought that they had the right skills for the job. After a careful selection process we are happy to announce that the following candidates were selected for the positions:

Sorcha, Elsie, Darcy, Nicole, Lacey-Ann, Alexia, Alan, Nadia, Marcin and Kayden.

They are currently undertaking online training modules to equip them with the skills they will need to support the rest of the school with their computing skills and online learning. When they have completed their training, before the summer holidays, they will receive badges and certificates ready to go into Year 6 with their new qualifications!

Mrs Owen and Miss Roberts (Computing Subject Leaders)

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please show consideration to our residents and parents/carers when parking outside school. We also ask that you drive slowly, 5MPH, on the school driveway.

Please do not park on both sides of the road outside of school as this prevents emergency services from accessing this road. Do not park on the zig zag lines or block driveways. Please show consideration for our local residents and think about the safety of ALL OUR CHILDREN!

Thank you to the majority of parents/carers who do park and drive considerately.
