Safer Internet Day

This week children participated in Key Stage assemblies and lessons in their classrooms which focused on staying safe and acting responsibly in the online world.  As part of the National Internet Day parents across the country are being urged to check what their children are accessing/posting online.


School Menu

This week your child brought home the new school meal menu which commences after half term.  Our school meals are cooked onsite by our wonderful kitchen team, and are in accordance with the East Ridings balanced diet menu which is based on The School Food Standards.  These standards help children develop healthy eating habits and ensures they get the energy and nutrition they need to learn and to grow.  I can also personally vouch for how delicious they are.   If you feel your child is eligible for free school meals you can contact the council’s benefit team on 01482 394799 or click on the link

Welcome to Week 6 Live Green

It’s nearly half term.  How are you getting on with our little handy hints? We hope you are being inspired to Green up your life!  Here are our final suggestions for this Spring. 

Go greener in the garden.  Setting up a compost bin means you turn food waste into nutrients for soil and, at the same time, save money on buying it at your local hardware store.  It’s not just extremely beneficial for plants and much better than using chemical fertilizers, but it’s also good for your purse.  It can also really help when it comes to growing your own fruit and vegetables.  Meanwhile, if you need the compost quickly consider adding earthworms to speed up the process.  Place a water butt to collect rain water and use it to water the garden and grass. You can also use bath tub water and water from the dishwasher.  Plenty of eco-friendly plant pots these days are made with petroleum alternative materials such as rice hulls, wheat straw, peat, paper and coconut fibers.  Rice hulls can be broken down and put in a compost heap while wheat straw pots end up being planted along with whatever’s in the pot.  (Don’t forget to try ‘ecosia’ search engine for all your surfing needs!)
