Remembrance Day 2019
How proud was I yesterday of our two boys, Edward and William Antrobus, who laid a wreath on behalf of our school at the war memorial and Isobelle Lane who read Flanders Field beautifully to everyone in attendance. The poppies made by the children, which were placed on the school gate, were praised by all that saw them in the village. A moving service – a great reminder to us all to stop for a moment today and show our heartfelt respect and thanks. It was lovely to see so many families at the service. The whole school will participate in a 2 minute silence today at 11am.
Anti Bullying Week 2019
This week is National Anti Bullying Week and the theme is ‘Change Starts with us.’ Every day the children will be part of a learning activity based on this theme. We have drama workshops and a song writing workshop for everyone to participate in. It should be an interesting and thought provoking week in which children will learn what bullying is, what to do if it is happening and how everyone can make a positive difference in ensuring that it does not happen at Cobham.
KS2 Cinema Trip
It has come to my knowledge that parents are organising amongst themselves KS2 children’s journey to and from the cinema. This is of course brilliant to hear, but I feel it is my duty to remind you that not all parents are DBS checked by us. If you have arranged for your child to be transported by another parent, you MUST put this in writing to ensure that we know who is travelling with who. We will not allow children to attend if we are unsure and we simply will not have time to check on the day. Our school insurance will only cover children travelling with parents who have a DBS check with the school. Many thanks in advance for all those parents who are DBS checked and have offered to support the children in having a great morning! Many thanks in advance for informing us ASAP who will be travelling with who!
