As you may know, we were recently awarded a national reco9gnition for our work in mental health. Mrs Brindley-Jones has now had an article published in the magazine sent to all school Governors to publicise this and we are very proud to share it here. Article for Leading magazine
After the awfully sad news of Wendy’s passing, Reverend Debbie has sent this message which we would like to share with anyone who needs support at this time.
As a school ourselves, we would like to pass on our condolences and thoughts to Wendy’s family. She was an amazing friend to us and the children who were lucky enough to have been in her care always spoke incredibly fondly of her. She will be greatly missed by the whole community.
It is with great sadness that we have to tell you that Wendy Whittington died suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this sad time. Wendy, I know touched the lives of many people in Wrockwardine Wood as a teacher for many, many years and she will be greatly missed. If you wish to come and light a candle in memory of Wendy or sit in the quiet of Holy Trinity Church with your thoughts and prayers, Church will be open tomorrow (Tuesday) from 3.30 – 6pm for you to do so. I will also be available should anyone wish to chat.
We have a wonderful time at the school discos last night and the children showed off some dance moves I wouldn’t be able to do in a million years. all the children were collected on time and my thanks go to the staff who stayed behind to supervise the disco in your own time; I appreciate it!
One point was made obvious to us though. We will be banning children from bringing any phones to any future discos. We were not aware that there were children there recording and photographing the event which sounds very innocent but we do have children whose image cannot be shared on any type of social media.
Some children have apps on their phone that are not allowed for primary age children and were sharing these images. If you know that your child has any of these apps or has photos or films from last night, please delete them or call into school with the phone and we can do it for you.
For this reason (amongst many others) we ask that no phones come to school.
Last Friday the children came home with a piece of paper with green trees all around it. On it was a challenge for the kids to try up to 6 things to improve their health. This can be a small bit of exercise , a bit of healthy eating or a piece of mindfulness.
They don’t have to do 6, any attempt would be great. The closing date for bringing their entry back is Monday 8th April and their are prizes for any family who has a go.
If your child has lost theirs and you’d like another, please pop into school or you may be able to download it here?
Thank you so much to all of you who have donated games and puzzles to school. The kids have loved using them at lunch and during Breakfast buddies and it really warms the heart to see them playing TOGETHER and chatting away while they are having fun. #bantheelectronics!
I have introduced them to The Flintstones cartoons of my childhood this morning and they’d never heard of them…..shocking parenting out there!!
One of our Year Three Parents is currently studying at university and could do with some help. she needs the input of parents to answer a few questions for her to aid in her research.
I have copied her Facebook post below and her email is
Please help if you can….
Do you have children aged between 4 and 16?
I am completing some research about the experiences you have of your children’s eating behaviours, mealtimes and technology use. If you are interested in taking part then please either comment on this post or send me a message directly and I will be happy to provide you with further information.
If you know of someone who may be interested in taking part in this study then please share this post or tag them so they can contact me directly.
Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.
