It has been lovely to welcome all children back to school this week and to have feedback from so many of you about how safe and happy your children feel at school. I know that we will continue to work together to do our best for them during these challenging times.
If you or a loved one are in need of additional support at the moment, community support available to you is detailed below.
An additional new service is now being offered via Barnardoes. Details are below.
As always, please contact a member of school staff if you are in need of additional support.

PC Suzanne Lester visited the Starling Class to talk to them about how Police Officers can help us to be safe. The children have worked on their emergency phone calls and learnt the police emergency number – 999.
Children took part in ‘Safer Internet Day’, considering key ways to stay safe online. Our parents received information about how to keep their children safe on the internet too. Please speak to Miss Beckett (ICT coordinator) or Sally Wright (Designated Safeguarding Lead) if you would like any help or support with this.
We have been celebrating ‘Friendship Week’ (Norbury’s positive take on Anti-Bullying Week’). The children have taken part in various activities throughout the week, focussing on building our friendly behaviours within the theme ‘Change Start With Us’.
The Year Six children have learnt and invented some traditional playground games and taught them to the other classes, showing lots of patience and understanding!
Starling Class thought about the ingredients for a good friend, friendly and unfriendly behaviours and made a delicious friendship cake!
We worked with our friends to make some fabulous friendship bracelets at Forest School.
We enjoyed Odd Socks Day and discussed how we are all different but all equal. We made this fabulous video for the national Odd Socks competition to win a visit from Andy and the Odd Socks!
See our video on our twitter page by finding us @norburyprimary .
Children reviewed our anti-bullying policy and thought about what would help if they felt like people were being unkind or unfriendly towards them.
