Events in School


Every week, we have a Safeguarding Assembly - this sometimes includes the Picture News update, as well as visitors into school and celebrations of other National Events.


Term 1 - we had assemblies on re-launching the Keeping You Safe board for children, updates on Safeguarding staff and the Wakefield Children's Charter, an introduction to Bobby Bear, the launch of the PSHE topics, Being Me in My World and Celebrating Difference, Anti-Bullying assemblys to fit with National Anti-Bullying Week and to launch our updated policy, a series of assemblies on the risk of live streaming and feedback from our Children's Survey of Safety in school.


So far in Term 2 - E-Safety lessons shared via the Goldilocks - a hashtag cautionary tale story, the launch of the PSHE topic, Dreams and Goals, input on Railway Safety and launches for Children's Mental Health Week and Internet Safety Day.

Future in Minds


School works closely with Future in Minds (part of the CAMHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) to provide emotional and mental health support to our pupils.  Each term, school discusses key children who would benefit from additional support, with the Future in Minds practitioner to gain advice, referrals and resources to support us in our work with these and other children.    In future, these meetings will also include a representative from our local Children's First Hub to allow us to integrate more closely and offer support to include the wider family. 


Additionally, each half term,  Future in Minds work with targeted classes and they can also provide events for parents and carers. 

3rd March - parent and carer event - dealing with children's emotional needs and mental health - see presentation below

7th July - advance notice of an event for parents and carers about supporting children as they transition to High School Cancelled due to Covid - restrictions - please see document to support transition, below.
