Keeping Healthy and Safe

Linking with the Government Initiative to encourage people to be fitter, we have been running a range of activities to ensure that children are confident to walk to school, that they are safe crossing the road and specifically crossing around parked cars and are using scooters safely.


All of our older children have taken the road safety challenge and have passed their cycling proficiency. In May we worked with Hertfordshire supporting the local community keep fit and all the children are encouraged to bring an older person to school to run our Daily Run.


At the end of the spring term we said goodbye to Alison Cotton, who was retiring after 12 years at our school. It was very sad to see her go, as she played such a large part in our school and was such a popular member of staff.



Our Maths Advisors have been encouraging us all to change the way we teach maths. We have been provided with lots of new ideas and ways of engaging less confident mathematicians and have been pleased to find that maths is one of our pupils’ favourite activities.



We have continued to provide a range of activities for the children:



Ball Skills





A new activity last term was that we had a dance teacher from Tring Educational School working with Class 4.
