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.

Christian Aid “Big Breakfast”

Christian Aid Big Breakfast Event

Friday 18th May

This year Christian Aid are encouraging people to get together for a ‘Big Breakfast’ to raise awareness of the work that they do to reduce poverty. The children will take part in some fun activities to think about how we can support people leading much more difficult lives than ours.

We would like to invite you to come to school for the chance to get together to share a simple and healthy breakfast with your child(ren).

This will be a great way for the children to enjoy something different after a busy few weeks in the classroom!

There will be two sittings available so siblings can be together.

All we ask is that you make a small donation to help us raise money!

Please note, due to space, families are limited to 2 adults. Sitting places will be allocated based on a first-come, first-served basis.

Ensure the slip is returned to the office by Friday 4th May.

Thank you,

Miss Hardingham

Celebrations as Julia Jarman opens our new school library

What a wonderful afternoon of excitement and anticipation as celebrated author Julia Jarman officially opened our new school library.

Children, parents, staff and members of the local community gathered in the hall to hear Julia Jarman share her stories and talk about the importance of reading and school libraries.

Children’s excitement was echoing through the corridor in the build up to the ribbon cutting ceremony and there were cheers all round when the library was finally declared open!

Our sincere thanks goes to the Friends of North Elmham School (FONES) who have worked tirelessly to fundraise over the past few months. Without their drive and the support of the local community this would not have been possible.

What a brilliant start to the summer term! ๐Ÿ“•๐Ÿ“—๐Ÿ“˜๐Ÿ“™
