We all know the importance of teaching children how to KEEP SAFE, in EVERY WAY. 

Your Journey to School:

Please talk to your children about the importance of holding your hand on the way in to school. ALWAYS use the pedestrian gate together and NEVER encourage your child to use the vehicle gate. Accidents WILL happen if you use this gate.

 

 

Safety in School :

 Our Golden Rules are:

We are kind

We are safe

We are ready to learn. 

Please talk to your children about the importance of each rule and how it helps to keep everyone safe. You will see these posters displayed around Nursery. 

 

 

Internet safety:

An increasing number of 3-4 year olds now have access to digital devices without adult supervision. 

We will be teaching your children INTERNET SAFETY using the character "Smartie the Penguin". Please have a look at the links below...

Please use these resources at home with your children. 

Many children are copying violent language and behaviours from online gaming.

BE CAREFUL about what your child is seeing at home and always monitor their use of any digital devices.
