Having hosted a very successful 'Community Health Fair' in school back in February this year and as a follow up on this we are providing further support to parents' and friends of the school which will focus on the importance of Positive Health and Wellbeing.  We have engaged an organisation called 'Dare to Stretch' to deliver a Level One Certificate training workshop which will explore Suicide Prevention and Emotional Health and Wellbeing.  The workshop will be held on Tuesday, 3 November 2015 in the school's multipurpose hall from 7pm to 9pm.

Pre-registration for this event is essential - if you are interested and plan to attend either by yourself or with a friend please contact Mrs Beckett via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name, address, contact telephone number and email address no later by Friday, 9 October 2015.

We trust that this event will be well supported by the parents' and friends of the school.  It will also be a great opportunity to enable us to work together as we strengthen the wellbeing of our school family and support the health and wellbeing of our pupils as we also continue to make a difference to the lives of children together.
