Message from Mrs Kingston We have noticed increasing levels of playground chat about the game Fortnite— Battle Royale which is a PEGI 12+ gun battle game which requires players to work as a team. The main risks to children are interacting with strangers and also making costly in-app purchases. If your child is talking about Fortnite, please follow this link to find out more about it. https:// fortnite-battle-royal-parents-guide-keepkids-safe-gaming/



2nd February 2021


Today is the second of February which is the feast of The Presentation of the Lord. It is also called Candlemas. In pre-Christian times, it was the festival of light. This ancient festival marks the point in the winter half-way between the winter solstice, the shortest day, and the spring equinox.  The strength of the life-giving sun increases as winter gives way to spring.

Children’s Mental Health Week

1-7 February 2021


Children’s Mental Health Week (Pupils) (


According to Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity that provides counselling and mental health support in UK schools, around three children in every primary school class have a mental health problem, and many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement.

Place2Be launched the first ever Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015 to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. Now in its seventh year, they hope to encourage more people than ever to get involved and spread the word – we wanted to get on board and bring a God-context to these issues too.

We never have to be afraid because Jesus is always with us. Take a moment to tell Jesus about anything you are scared of and ask Him to help you and comfort you
