23rd September 2022
It is a pleasure to write to you again after a couple of weeks. Across the Truro and Penwith Trust, we were very mindful of putting out news at a time of national mourning. So, we have lots of positive news and information that we wish to share.
Children seem to be settling in now with their new teachers. I’m not sure that the children even see them as ‘new’ any longer! Parents and carers will have the opportunity to meet with teachers soon as part of a Parents’ Evening, but do email/speak to teachers about any concerns you might have at any point! We hugely value our relationships with families.
The academies have been massively oversubscribed this term which we’re pleased about, and those who missed out this time will have priority after Christmas. We’re also pleased to see children around school with their “responsibility lanyards” round their neck – the lanyards shows that they are helping out in some way – in the library, with the computers, and so on!
Perhaps it is a reflection of the times we live in, or that my children seem to know more about computers than I do, but the world of computers can be quite daunting at times. It is, however, still important to keep checking that children are not seeing inappropriate content. There are some incredibly helpful articles on the following website https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/. Can I invite parents to have a look, and hopefully the content might be of some use.
And it has been lovely to see the children on bikes as part of their Bike-ability programme – lots of circling the playground and heading off onto the streets of Liskeard. Be kind if you see them on the roads!
I hope that you have a lovely weekend!
