Harrison Headlines - Friday 13th May 2022

Firstly, a huge well done to our Year 6 children and the Year 6 team this week. The children demonstrated incredible resilience and perseverance. We are proud of their efforts and attitudes to learning. The Year 6 team has worked tirelessly to give the children confidence and has inspired our children to do their best. A huge thank you to everyone who supported the children. We celebrated the end of SATs with ice lollies and the launch of the Year 6 Production today!

Walk to School Week - 16th to 20th May 2022.

 Mrs Scott has met with the ‘Junior Road Safety Officers’ in Year 5 this week to sort out   

 publicity materials for next week. One of the aims next week will be to get everyone 

 walking - even if it’s a ‘park nearby and stride’ walk up the road to school.

 Also over the coming weeks all classes across the school will be designing ‘Safety in the 

 School Streets’ banners. We want to get our whole community involved in promoting 

 safety on Harrison Road. 

I have been very alarmed by events on Harrison Road this week - it is just a matter of time before a child is seriously hurt. Please be assured that we do teach road safety however parents must take responsibility for their children at all times. Please remember that cars can still use the road when the scheme is in operation. 

Our volunteers are there to guide cars through the scheme - they cannot be responsible for children’s safety. Our hope is that the scheme will become more permanent.

We want to make sure that all parents know about the role of our Governing Body - to give parents insight into the strategic role of Governors but also to let you know what we do - in case you wanted to join us.

Governor Update from Andrew Prescott, Year 1 link governor

This week the Learning and Teaching Committee met.  This is the committee that reviews the progress the school is making in improving the quality of the curriculum and teaching. The governors’ role includes reviewing the school’s improvement plan (known as a SIP).  

At this meeting, we had a great update on e-safety from Mr McCune, Year 3 teacher who leads ‘e-safety with Mr Gooding, where we discussed the school’s approach.  

t was great to hear how engaged the school is on such a vital subject, and we discussed how important it was that parents/carers, along with the school, are aware of how we can both support children, and manage the use of devices through parental controls.  Watch out for more info on this subject over the coming weeks.
We also discussed the SIP, progress against the plan, and how the governors are really seeing what is happening in school through visits. Each governor has the opportunity to see the school in action - it's a great way to see the reality of how the school is delivering.  

Our next meeting is in July - our final one for this school year.
