On Wednesday we had Tim Pinto return to school to do some workshops with the children on how to keep safe on-line, focusing on what we post and selfies that we take. He also worked with the children on what to look out fro if someone wants to add you as friend or sends you a friend request.

Our parents also benefited from Tim's excellent knowledge with a workshop shared with staff at the start of the school day to make adults aware of what dangers we and their children face.

Thursday saw the fire brigade come in to school and look at ways to keep safe in the home, such as using and checking smoke alarms, having an escape plan and knowing your address and details of where you are in case a fire needs to be reported. The children also had the excitement of seeing the fire engine and feeling the spray from the hose. Very refreshing on such a hot day!

Friday saw the launch of our new child friendly safeguarding leaflet, covering Wakefield's young peoples charter , along with lots of information and contact details for children to keep themselves safe.
