Relationships and Sex Education Parent Consultation

Dear parents/carers,

In light of upcoming changes to requirements for relationships and sex education (RSE), we’ve been consulting with parents, pupils and staff on how we can make sure that our updated RSE curriculum meets the new requirements as well as the needs of our pupils.

We’ve worked hard to make sure that our new curriculum reflects:

  • Our pupils’ age and maturity levels, as well as their cultural and religious backgrounds
  • The values of our school community
  • Every pupil’s learning needs
  • What pupils need to know to be healthy and safe in school, in their personal relationships and in the wider world

We’ve now updated our RSE policy to include our proposed new curriculum. You’ll find a copy of our new draft policy on the website along with the objectives to be taught in each year group. There are also sample lessons and a quick-glance sheet of the key changes that have been made.

We’d like your feedback on the proposed curriculum, and the wider policy. You can do this by completing this survey: https://forms.gle/ZVig6ZeWznYaJr1i7 . Unless you wish to include your child’s or children’s names, the survey will be anonymous. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to give valuable feedback on the teaching of this subject. After the closing date, we will be aiming to provide a meeting based on the feedback to cover any content that you feel you need more information and guidance on.

The deadline for responding to the consultation is 30th April 2021.

We look forward to your thoughts and comments on these vital and inclusive changes.

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs Plowman

Snow Closure (8th Feb)

School will be physically closed to ALL pupils today. We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.

This is because, although there has not been loads of snow, the freezing temperatures have made the roads incredibly dangerous for everyone to get in to school.

Plus, with windows and doors open for ventilation, and freezing temperatures, the school would be too cold.

Online learning will continue but there will be a snow theme to it! Await further info from your class teachers.

Have a safe day everyone.

Welcome to a new lockdown

Sadly, Bluebell Primary School is closed on Tuesday 5th January and will open only on Wednesday 6th to children of key workers and families supported by social workers .

Teachers will be posting remote learning tomorrow morning either on Class Dojo or Google Classroom.

For more information please see the remote learning page or read this Parent Information sheet.

We are here to help and will be in regular contact throughout. If you need anything, please contact the school.

New School Rules

When the children come back in January, we’ll have some new school rules voted for by the entire school community.

  • Be safe
  • Be kind
  • Be ready

How are you achieving these rules this holiday?

Bluebell Christmas Movie

Having a film night? Looking for some festive fun?

Well… Sit back and enjoy the ‘seasonal sensation’ made by all the classes of Bluebell, from Nursery to Year 6.

Well done to all the children who took part.

A huge, special thanks also goes out to Mr D for all his hard work putting this together. His direction and editing skills have not gone unnoticed.

Christmas Carols Online

Even though we can’t all be together, all the schools in our academy trust recorded some Christmas carols online and shared them together online.

I know I’m biased but this is amazing and definitely worth a watch.

Protect ourselves. Protect others. Protect Norfolk

Protect ourselves. Protect others. Protect Norfolk

We fully support this message from Norfolk County Council in keeping everyone safe at Bluebell.

We have been incredibly proud how everyone in our school community has shown support and care for one another on the school playground.

Adults have been wearing face masks and everyone is sticking to the one-way-system and we really appreciate the cooperation and understanding of all the changes we have had to make.
