Parent Resources

By Collective worship, Community, PSHE, Religious Education

Today many of our children came to school asking questions about Ukraine. For this reason, in collective worship we talked about worries and the importance of sharing these worries with people that we trust.

Here are some reading resources to help parents think about how they can support children with what they are seeing or feeling during these challenging times.

Supporting our Children through Books

By Community, English, PSHE, Reading

Unfortunately, most children will experience loss or grief. We want to be here for our children through the good times and the sad times. With the help of Ernie’s Wish, we now have a library of beautiful books that could help children through these challenging times.

Children can loan these books or read them with an adult at school -whatever feels right. Books have such a special way of helping children understand and explore unfamiliar emotions.

Please let us know if your child requires any additional pastural care.

A big thank you to Mrs Mayor, who sourced many of these books from Ernie’s Wish.

Thank you,

Our School Rules

By Community, Equality, Letters to Parents, Mental Health, News, Newsletter, Policies, PSHE

This week we have been discussing our school rules:

Be responsible
Be respectful
Be ready to learn

With the children, we have been looking at how these rules fit into good habits in every aspect of civil and academic conduct.

In collective worship, we launched a competition for the children to design a poster that advertises our school rules. If your child would like to take part in the competition, all entries need to be returned to school by Friday 17th September.

Thank you,

Diversity

By Collective worship, Community, Equality, House Carmel, House Jericho, House Jordan, House Sinai, PSHE

This half term, we have been learning about diversity. We asked every child in the school to complete a questionnaire to find out what diversity means to them.

This week our house leaders have been super busy interviewing children to prepare a diversity assembly that we are going to show at school tomorrow. House leaders worked so hard to conduct the interviews in a covid safe way.

Here is a trailer for their assembly.

Well done St Alban’s!

Class Elections

By Collective worship, Community, House Carmel, House Jericho, House Jordan, House Sinai, PSHE

Today our lovely house leaders led collective worship for the whole school.

In this meeting, house leaders discuss class elections that are happening on the 6th May. We think it is important that our children learn about democracy, preparing them to live and thrive in modern Britain.

Watch this film to find out more.

Thank you,
