Who lives in a rock pool?

We have had a very busy and exciting topic this term. Our next topic is called ‘who lives in a rock pool?’ We will be learning all about rock pools and the different animals and plants we may find in them.

One of our first activities in this topic is to ‘make a rock pool in a jar’. In preparation for this activity over Easter please can you collect some of the following items for you child.

  • shells
  • rocks
  • pebbles
  • sea life creatures
  • star fish
  • a clear plastic container to put your rock pool into for example a jar
  • and any other items you can think of!

Please can you bring in these items in a named carrier bag for the first day back after Easter.

Thank you for your going support, we hope you have a lovely Easter.

Operation Encompass

19th November 18

Dear Parent/Carer


This is a reminder that our school is participating in the Operation Encompass partnership scheme between local schools, academies, colleges, nurseries, community health agencies and Cleveland Police.

Operation Encompass was set up to provided early reporting to school about any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school hours to which a young person attending our school has been exposed, and which might then have an impact on them attending school the following day.  This information will be shared on school days during term time and, when incidents occur on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, the police will contact the relevant school the following Monday.

Information will only be shared with the school by the police where it is identified that a young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident.

A nominated member of school staff known as a Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer (DSLO) has been trained to liaise with the police.  They will be able to use information that has been shared with them in confidence, to ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children or their families.  The DSLO will keep this information confidential, and will only share it on a need to know basis, for instance, to teaching staff for the child or young person.  It will not be shared with other pupils.

Operation Encompass was first introduced in Plymouth in February 2011, and has proved very effective in providing appropriate and timely support to young people affected by domestic abuse.  This initiative has been implemented across the whole of the Cleveland Police area.  If you would like some more information about it, you can view it online at www.operationencompass.org

We are keen to offer the best support possible for our pupils and a recent review of Operation Encompass showed that is it beneficial and supportive for all those involved.

Kind regards
