The School Blog

We are pleased to say that we have set up a school blog for pupils and staff.  For those of you who may be unfamiliar with blogs and 'blogging', think of it as an interactive website that allows our pupils and staff to add their own content and comments.  The aim of the school blog is to improve literacy by encouraging our pupils to write content for the blog and to respond to the writing of others in a constructive and positive way.  We will also be using the blog as a means of teaching our pupils how to use social media safely and responsibly.  Pupils will be encouraged to leave comments on the blog and these comments will always be checked by staff to ensure they are appropriate before they appear on the blog.  We will use the blog in school as a fun, interactive and collaborative way to share pupils’ work and ideas.  Pupils can access the blog outside of school if they wish to. It is an exciting resource which we encourage you to use alongside your child.

You can access the school blog via the link below:
