Keeping Children Safe Online

We would like to draw your attention to a new initiative launched by Facebook called the ‘Parents Portal’ which aims to help parents, guardians and teachers to be better informed about child safety online.

Children spend on average 3.4 hours a day on their smartphones and nowadays 62% of 11 year-olds have a Facebook profile.

The Parents Portal, which has been created by Facebook, their safety partners and parents around the world tries to answer some of the many questions surrounding the internet. This online platform provides an important resource with a Bullying Prevention Hub, important Parenting Tips, advice and important links to safety experts and the full Parents Portal can be found at

Plastic Free School

This term we will be learning how to improve our environment by engaging with the plastic free schools initiative supported by Surfers Against Sewage. This is inspired by Plastic Free Penzance and David Attenborough’s Blue Planet.
Our main aim is to raise awareness amongst children, staff and families about reducing single use plastic and properly recycling the plastics that we do use.
We have asked all of our children to help out at home with recycling. For up to date information on what can and can’t be recycled in Cornwall - please visit the link below.
