St Joseph’s RC Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff, governors and volunteers are expected to share this commitment. For more information please see our safeguarding policy which can be found under Key Information > Policies & Statements > Safeguarding Policy.
The teachers in Class 3 are:
Mrs Hamer ( Monday, Tuesday and Friday) and Mrs Burgess (Wednesday and Thursday).
Our teaching assistant is Miss Lonergan.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. The children will need to come to school dressed in their PE kits on these days.
Due to the current restrictions we will only be changing the children's reading books twice a week. This is so that all books can be properly cleaned before being sent home with another child. We will therefore only be changing books on Mondays and Thursdays, but will be sending two books home at a time. Please only send your child's reading folder into school on a Monday and Thursday. For more information about reading at home please read our Year 1 Autumn 1 newsletter.
There is a new resource for parents and carers about internet safety. "Video guides for the free ISP parental controls". These guidelines have been produced by Safer internet who have been working with BT, Sky, Talk Talk and Virgin Media, who have each made short video clips outlining where you can find their free parental controls, what they do and how you set them up.
These films are available on the UK Safer Internet Centre website and you can embed the films if you want to use them or download them. See http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-and-resources/parents-and-carers/parental-controls . Do please make use of them and let people know about them. The ISPs have committed to keeping these films updated, and if you embed the films on your site, we are able to update them for you if they change.
