This term we will be focusing on relationships in RSHE. We will be exploring friendships, what makes a good friend and what makes a family.

In line with the National Curriculum for Year 5, physical and emotional changes during puberty and menstruation will be taught in an age-appropriate way over two lessons.

These lessons are statutory and will be taught in the week commencing the 24th June. These important lessons have been planned with considerable research and thought and we encourage parents who are concerned about them to speak to class teachers to arrange a time to explore the slides.

Walking Home

If you would like your child to walk home alone after school, please let the office or their class teacher know so this can be added to BROMCOM. We will be unable to allow this until this permission is received.

Parent Consultations

The following dates are for our first parent consultations of the year. Please use MCAS to book your time slot. 

Monday 5th February & Monday 19th February, 7:40-8:30am & 3:40-6:30pm.
