Parking at the Surgery

The surgery has been in touch this morning to say that there’s quite a few people parking in their car park at drop off and pick up time at school. They even reported that one parent had parked in the emergency bay the other day which presents a serious problem should they need to call an ambulance.

We appreciate that parking at these times can be a challenge but they would like to remind people that the car park is for surgery use only.

Many thanks,

Mr I

Sun Safety

We were joined by Kelly and Beverly this morning from the N&N Hospital to teach us all about sun safety.

We learnt:

  • That we needed thick enough clothes to block sunlight
  • To wear sunscreen factor 50 and 5 stars
  • Wear sunglasses to protect our eyes
  • Wear a sun hat with a wide brim to protect our face, ears and neck
  • Drink plenty of water

With this in mind can you make sure your children have all of these so that they can be sun safe at school.

Thank you

SIAMS Success!

Before Easter we were visited by inspectors from the diocese to carry out a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection. This is a bit like an Ofsted inspection but looks at the Christian character of the school and how our Christian values underpin everything we do.

We were so very pleased to be awarded a ‘Good’ which recognised all of the hard work put in by staff over the past year to develop our church school community.

Highlights from the report include:

  • This is a nurturing and inclusive Christian community which serves its pupils and its families very well. Consequently, North Elmham Primary School ensures all are encouraged to do their best within the context of a Christian family environment.
  • The partnership between the churches and the school enriches the worshipping life of this school community and supports their spiritual, moral and personal development well.
  • The commitment and dedication of all staff and governors is seen in a renewed impetus to take forward the distinctive Christian character of this school on its journey of school improvement. As such, this embraces care, well-being and nurture together with a new Christian vision which is beginning to make a difference.

This has very much been a team effort though special recognition needs to go to Miss Hardingham and Mrs Barber for their incredible contributions.
