 Please come along to our Building Learning Power Workshop

Wednesday 28th Sept 3.30 at school

 Parents will remember that our school has been working very hard over the last year to develop positive learning strategies through adopting Building Learning Power (BLP). The aim of BLP is to ensure that every child sees themselves as a lifelong learner; we believe children should be empowered to see that learning takes place all of the time and should not be confined to just the classroom and school. The aim and culture of BLP inspired schools allows children to train and develop their learning muscles, enabling them to become…BLP – More curious;

– More ready, willing and able to learn with and through others;

– More willing to take a risk in their learning;

– More emotionally intelligent

– More creative;

– More thoughtful;

 In order to help us develop our BLP skills we have chosen some child to be BLP Ambassadors. Our ambassadors, along with Mr Harris would like to invite all parents to a BLP workshop on Wed 28th Sept 3.30pm in the hall. This will be a great opportunity for parents to find out more about BLP, how it can help your child learn and of course to see our ambassadors showcasing their BLP skills.

Please come along, it’d be great to see you there!

At Perranporth E-safety forms a part of everyday school life. We continue to raise awareness of internet safety by joining in with Safer Internet Day each year. ‘Safer Internet Day’ this year was the thirteenth edition of the event and it took place worldwide on Tuesday 9th February 2016. The theme for ‘Safer Internet Day 2016’ was ‘Play your part for a better internet’.

The day gave us the opportunity to think about the positive uses of technology and the role we can all play to create a better internet. “The theme encouraged us to consider what we do online, the way we behave and communicate and how we should always endeavor to be positive and post positive content.

Be SMART with their phone!

How to Protect Your Children on Their Smartphone

For many parents, the convenience of knowing where their kids are at all times is more than enough to warrant the price of a smart phone. In fact, a solid 90% of children under the age of 16 in the UK have a mobile. But as with anything else, smart phones come with both their pros and their cons, and when you’re talking about kids, the issue gets even trickier.

From cyber bullying to inappropriate web content, being able to contact strangers, being able to rack up hefty cell phone bills, all these things come to mind when we start thinking about the dangers of impressionable kids using a mobile. And truth be told, those dangers do exist. There’s no avoiding the fact that you do run a risk by giving your child a mobile.
