School Photographs - Monday 31st October
This year we are able to offer family photos with siblings from both schools together. If you would like your children from both school to have a joint photo, we would ask that you bring them to Abbey Park First School hall from 8am, then it will be a case of waiting in a queue until they have been taken together and then pop them to their respective schools. We will also arrange for each of them to have their individual portraits during the school day, so effective you will end up with three images, two individuals and one joint.
We are having to take these group photos seporately because we are using a company that use ‘Green Screen’ technology, which allows parents to choose the background that they would like at the time of order.
Effectively the children at Abbey Park Middle School, who wear blue school uniforms will sit in front of a ‘green screen’ this then allows the parent to choose the background of the image when they order. As the children at Abbey Park First school wear a green uniform, we have arranged for those children to sit in front of a ‘Blue screen’ and again this will enable the parents to choose their background again.
The only problem with this wonderful new technology is that if we put children from either school together in front of a green or blue screen we will lose one of the children as their uniform will blend in.
In the morning at 8am, the joint portrait will be taken in front of a white background and parents will be unable to change this, but you will able to choose your background on the individual poses, taken during the school day.
I hope this makes sense.
In the summer term of last year a group of year 6 pupils were inspired by local athlete Rebecca Redfern. Rebecca is a 100 metre breast stroke swimmer, with a visual impairment, who qualified to go to the Paralympics in Rio de Janerio this September. The year 6 children all made cards wishing Rebecca the very best in Rio.
On Tuesday 13th September Mr Martin took the whole of Year 5 to Number 8 in Pershore to watch the film "The BFG". This was to celebrate 100 years since the birth of the author of the book, Roald Dahl.
During our first week back at APMS we went over to Croome by mini bus then we walked over to the house to have a look at the creations from Grayson Perry. After, we had a look around the rest of the house and had a snack in the extensive gardens behind. Next, we went over to the other side of the river so we could have lunch and a stretch. After lunch we sketched the bridge for a while and walked back to the house. The day was beautifully sunny and it was very fun. I enjoyed the experience a lot and at the end I was sad to go but excited to tell my mum about it.
Safeguarding Children at Abbey Park Middle School
This school believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.
We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm. We will work co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns about out pupils our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first – unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection is Lynn Evans
The Deputy Designated Person for child protection is Nikki Poole
The Governor with responsibility for child protection is Neil Grimshaw
We will review our policy and procedures on an annual basis.
