|As you may be aware, the electrical supply to Pre-School and the Breakfast/Tea Time club buildings was lost. We have managed to get a temporary supply run in from the Children’s Centre building. Unfortunately it will take a while longer for the supply to be fully restored. This means that both the Breakfast and Tea Time clubs will continue being held in the main building. Breakfast club will always be in the Hall but due to other events Tea Time club will be in different rooms –signs will be put out in school directing you to where the club is being held.
I am sorry for any inconvenience and we all hope that normal service will be resumed soon!
Recently we have held these e-safety sessions every 2 years but with there being so much ICT related change we have decided to hold them annually. This year our Internet Safety day is 7 February. Come and find out how we can all work together to make the children’s experiences of ICT positive ones! Our meetings are 2.30 pm – 3.30 pm and 5.30 pm – 6.30 pm. If you have not received our information letter, please call into the school office to obtain a copy.More
|For quite a while I have been negotiating our involvement in an Europe wide schools project. I’m delighted to tell you that Birchfield is a partner in an ‘Erasmus’ project entitled “How our history unites us!”
There are 10 schools involved – one each from UK, Italy, Bulgaria, Portugal, Turkey, Lithuania, France, Sweden, Belgium, Spain so it really is an Europe wide project and it is a great honour for us to be involved!
The funding for this comes from the E.U. so I was worried after Brexit but we are guaranteed the money for the whole project which runs until July 2019.
Central to the project will be the exchange of ideas, information and good practice between school staff and pupils. On the 26 and 27 January, staff from the other 9 schools will visit us to ‘kick start’ the project. Later on there will be the chance for some of our children to visit schools in either Portugal or Italy – all very exciting!
