The school enjoys a rich diversity represented by at least thirty languages. We take care to ensure that anyone who may need something translated (written or spoken) is catered for.

Our pupils, in learning to accept others with all their differences, develop an appreciation for what we can all offer to each other.

 

Summer Holiday Cycling

There are cycling courses running throughout August in Enfield  for all ages and levels of cycling ability. Take a look at the website and book a place - training courses are free. The only restriction is you must live, work or study in Enfield.

Have fun!

Feedback from our parents' survey

Thank you to all of you who took part in our parents' survey at the end of May and took the trouble to write comments as well. The response was overwhelmingly positive and we are delighted that you feel welcomed when you come in to school and receive satisfactory answers to your queries. 

This does not mean we are complacent however and as you know, we will always listen to your suggestions for improvements. 

This quote was  a typical response-

"It's always a pleasure coming to drop my daughter off to school in the morning. Ms Creed and the other members of staff are always warm and welcoming. They are always on hand if we have a problem. The ladies in the office are always kind and extremely courteous. We appreciate you all and thank you for looking after our daughter."

 

Parents' Computing Course

We have had a very good response to our letter about running an IT course in school for parents.  In order to make sure we have enough time to cover all aspects at the correct level, we will be starting the first course in September (we are planning three programmes). We will be sending letters out in the next week with details of time and dates. This should give you plenty of time to make any arrangements you might need to and to speak to us if you would like us to change anything. We are looking forward to running the course as it looks to be something you feel will be of real interest.

 

By the way don't forget to let us know if you have skills and experience which you feel would benefit us in school in any way. Speaking to one parent for example, she told me that she does not need the course herself a she is an IT specialist but she would love to come in and help. As you know we welcome you coming in to school -the children always enjoy it and teachers recognise the benefit of having a different perspective. Contact the office and they will give you details of how to go about completing any paper-work (DBS check is always necessary).

We are very fortunate to live just a stones throw away from the River Lee and the Lee Valley Park which follws much of the river. The park provides vast open spaces, nature reserves, Lee Valley Park Farms as well as facilities for a variety of sports including water sports.

The London 2012 Olympics led to a number of projects to improve the Lee Valley waterways for both people and nature.

DANCE FESTIVAL 2018

We danced to the theme of 'Let's Dance'. We went to Milfield Theatre to perform our dance. We were so proud of ourselves and really enjoyed dancing on stage!

"I liked doing everything, I got to dance infront of my parents" "I had fun dancing, it was great"

 

"I liked going into the huddle, and into the circle" "the best was my bowtie, it was so glittery and sparkly" "I think I did really good jumping"

"The best bit was when we were going to dance infront of all the people, but I really liked doing the colouring after!"

 

"When the lights went off, it was a bit scary" "Then then lights came on, I was nervous to do the dance, but I was so happy, I heard the music playing and everyone was clapping"

"I liked doing the turns" "I was scared but very excited" "I had a beautiful feather and gems on my headband"

"It was so good to do the dancing, I really liked the fact that we got to make up the moves ourselves and think about the way we had to put all the steps together" "We got to do our own styles and it felt so good to perform infront of everyone"

Raising awareness of sexual abuse of children (NSPCC)

TV Advert
As you may be aware the NSPCC have been broadcasting a TV advert to raise awareness of how parents can help their younger children keep safe from child sexual abuse. If you’ve missed it, you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/nMIKUsZjirA

Parents' Pack for PANTS message 
The TV advert directs parents to the PANTS campaign, used in schools for many years. There is now a pack for parents to use, to encourage them to have a conversation that many might feel uncomfortable about having. Information is also available in Welsh and for children with a hearing impairment. The link to the parents’ PANTS pack is here: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/underwear-rule

Pantosaurus App for iOS and Android
The NSPCC have also teamed up with award-winning animators, Aardman to create a free app, for both android and iOS, featuring the Panatsorus characters. There are four mini games where players test their skills against Pantosaurus. The app is great fun to use, although I’m rubbish at mobile games and struggled with the basketball game! Get the app by going to the relevant App Store below:
