Child Safety Week, 1st – 7th June 2020 – Safety Makes Sense
South Tyneside Safeguarding Children Partnership are pleased to inform you that we will be supporting Child Safety Week again this year.
This year Child Safety Week runs from 1st June until 7th June 2020 and looks very different due to the COVID 19 pandemic. None the less the messages of how to keep children safe from accidents remain the same. Our homes are accident hotspots for younger children which is a scary prospect at the best of times and sadly less traffic doesn’t mean we can completely switch off about road safety.
Throughout the week we will be sharing a range of top tips on how to keep children safe from accidents during lockdown (these can be found on our Twitter feed @STSafeguarding), as well as providing links to some excellent resources from the Child Accident Prevention Trust.
We would encourage you to share the links and resources across your own networks and have attached the 2020 family activity pack.

Some information for our children aged 10 years and over to support with mental health.
The “ThinkuKnow” ia an education programme from the NCA-CEOP.
This is a UK organisation which protects children both online and offline.
There are resources on the website targeted at different age groups. Parents/Carers and teachers could use the resource to assist as part of their learning. It would hopefully help keep them safe.

After a year of funraising in school and with the support of our wonderful parents. carers, staff, governors and the wider community we have our first ever school minibus.

Thank you to Variety for the Sunshine Coach and to Turn Key for sponsoring us.
Year 3 and Year 4 had a brilliant day at the Laing Gallery. We completed a workshop creating sculptures and also had a good look around the different exhibitions. We sketched some of our favourite paintings and looked out for different things in the artwork.
Year 2 from Valley View and Hedworthfield and the Additional Resource Base 1 enjoyed a ‘Great Fire of London’ day. They baked bread in the Pudding Lane Bakery, build Tudor houses, drew London fire landscapes with pastels, sang songs, toasted marshmallows in our fire pit. They then watched as the Tudor houses were set alight to act out the burning city.
We are delighted to announce that we have been chosen to participate in the National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP)
This support from the NSBP, funded by the Department for Education and delivered by the Charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast, will enable us to expand breakfast provision in our school and reach additional disadvantaged children with a healthy free breakfast.
