Past Pupil Letter

Ken Durno, who attended Redbridge Primary School during its opening year in 1937, has written a wonderful letter to our Year 6 pupils this month. He visited us in Autumn Term and, following the visit, really appreciated the time that our children took to write to him and marvelled at their handwriting skills! Please take some time to read and enjoy this letter and well done to year 6.

PE Equipment!

We have purchased some new PE equipment with our Sports Premium Funding. This is funding that our school receives from the government to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport. All of our students will benefit from this new equipment and have already enjoyed using the apparatus in their PE lessons and Fitness and Games Club

Public Speaking Competition

This week, five enthusiastic, remarkable children from Year 6 participated in a Public Speaking competition against other schools in Redbridge.  The aim of this competition was to provide them with the opportunity of speaking to a large audience about a subject of their choice. They have worked extremely hard since the Autumn term to develop their roles.  

Joel and Ayaad were our speakers and did Redbridge proud by speaking clearly and formally, engaging the audience and answering challenging questions.  ​Samiha did a fantastic job of keeping the team on time through her job of chair person.  Hanna had the challenging role of thinking of questions for the speakers and thought about excellent questions.  Elizabete was on the judging panel and thought very hard about the quality of speeches and how they were delivered.   

A huge congratulations and well done to all five children for showing determination throughout the term, as well as on the day! You were a real asset to our school.  Thank you to their families too, who helped supported them with their roles.

Winter Arts Festival at Cranbrook

We had a wonderful afternoon at Cranbrook Primary School for the Winter Arts Festival on 26th January. This year's theme was 'Heal the World' and we were delighted to spend time with the Mayor of Redbridge and children from Mossford Green, Fullwood, Manford, Cranbrook,. Glade, Leverton and Cleveland Road Primary Schools. Our choir won a silver trophy for their performance of 'Fight Song' and our art club wall tapestry also won a silver trophy! Our dancers performed their piece, 'In the circle of Hope' beautifully. We were all very proud of them. Thank you to Mr Khan and Mr Bergmann for all of their hard work in preparing the children for the event. We can't wait until next year - the theme for 2019 is 'The Elements.'

Digital Leaders become Teachers!

This week, the digital leaders  became teachers! They visited Year 1 and 2 to teach children about how to be safe online, especially when using tablets. They did a fantastic job and all the teachers were  extremely proud of how professional and engaging they were. They look forward to having future visits  in the next half term!

 

Boccia and Athletics

Miss Cooper took a group of children to Frenford Clubs to compete in a Boccia competition. Boccia is similar to bowls. They had a fantastic day showing true determination and team spirit. The team finished in 2nd place and were really excited to receive a silver medal each.

Miss Cornwall took a team of year 5 students to an Athletics event at Beal High School. The children took part in a variety of track and field events. They had a great time competing against other schools. Their teamwork and support for each other was excellent. For some of our children this was their first time in a competitive event. Well done everyone!

Safer Internet Day Message to Parents

Dear Parents and Carers

We hope you enjoy this bumper edition of the newsletter; it has been a very busy fortnight! This week we have been celebrating Safer Internet Day. A copy of Digital Parenting magazine will be sent home today with your child. Redbridge Primary School communicate with parents through letters, newsletters, groupcall emails, texts and our website only. A PTA Facebook account exists for parents, which is managed by the PTA not the school. We do not currently have any active WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter or other social media accounts.

Effective communication following principles of mutual respect is the best means of ensuring the best learning experiences for the child. Just as we expect our staff and children to behave appropriately and safely online, we ask that parents act as good role models and play their part in ensuring that children are safe online.

We ask that parents do not post pictures of pupils, other than their own children, on social networking sites where these photographs have been taken at a school event. If any parent has a concern or complaint about an issue at school, please follow our complaints policy and use official school channels rather than posting complaints and concerns on social networks e.g. WhatsApp and Facebook groups. Parents should not post malicious or fictitious comments on social networking sites about any member of the school community. We are very lucky to have such a caring, engaged members of the school community who treat our children and staff with respect. We will not tolerate any staff member being subject to online abuse. Where this occurs, it will be followed up by the school leadership team and passed on to relevant external agencies where necessary.
Please take some time to discuss safer internet use with your child over the half term break. Wishing you a restful week with your families!
Yours sincerely
Mr Henry, Acting Headteacher
