Lots of work has taken place over the break so far on phase 2 and phase 3 of the toilet project! The new boys’ facility is almost complete, whilst work has also begun on the refurbishment of the old boys’ toilet.
Phase 2 (formerly the girls’ toilets)
Phase 3 (refurbishment of the original boys’ toilets)
But can you guess what the two extra doors are for?!

Just a quick post for adults to make you aware of an article that appeared in the news this week regarding a very popular game with children – Movie Star Planet. The article has reported that children playing this game were sent obscene messages by adults posing as children.
The full article can be seen HERE, but we should understand that this type of activity can happen anywhere online whether that be games on the Xbox One, a smartphone, playing on the laptop or any other device or online activity where there is the ability for communication with others.
We have not heard of any incident at our school or any other schools in our area but we felt it important to bring this matter to your attention.
It should be understood that incidents such as this are not limited to Movie Star Planet, which is a fantastic game for children and is very well moderated, but this can happen anywhere online where communication can take place.
Our advice is as follows:
1. Check which online games and social media apps your children use.
2. Ensure you and your child know how to report and/or block if any inappropriate activity is witnessed.
3. Dependent on age, parental supervision is paramount when your child is online.
4. Ensure your child knows that he/she can come to you if they see or hear anything that upsets them.
