NSPCC Speak out. Stay Safe.


On Tuesday 20th June pupils in KS1 and KS2 were visited by NSPCC staff to deliver their 'Speak out. Stay safe' programme. By the end of the assembly to all pupils and workshops to Year 5 and 6 the aim is for pupils to feel empowered and confident to speak out and stay safe. With the help of their mascot Buddy, the programme aims to help children:

  • understand abuse in all its forms and recognise the signs of abuse
  • know how to protect themselves from all forms of abuse
  • know how to get help, and the sources of help available to them, including our Childline service.

For more help, support or advice please visit our 'Keeping Your Child Safe' page on our main website.

Aaaaarrgghh me hearties!


Wrens and Robins had a maaaaaarrrrvellous time on our Pirate Day on June 15th. A real live pirate called Maggot Tom dropped anchor at Silverhill and came to visit us. Maggot Tom taught us all about the parts of a ship, what pirates used to eat and what sort of words and language they used. Then we did some cannonball throwing to test how accurate we were and some sword fighting too - Maggot Tom even brought in his real sword (although we didn't fight with that!!). We had a great time but we're quite glad we aren't real pirates!

Year 1 at the Zoo

The Year 1 children had a fabulous time at the zo this week to enrich their topic 'Is it alive?'. We saw a wide variety of animals including birds, mammals, reptiles and insects. Thankfully the sun shone for us and we were able to have a picnic lunch outside- though the cheeky ducklings wanted to share our lunch! Thank you to all the children for their superb behaviour throughout the day.
