Our excellent new school JRSO’s (Junior Road Safety Officers) learnt so much about with today. The event run by included bike safety and maintenance and they found out how the police use speed guns. They were most excited to learn that they will be joining them soon to see the speed guns in action on our streets! They also got to meet the lovely the Hackney Deputy Speaker who encouraged them to get that road safety message across at school.
We had fab “Little Big Hair Assemblies” this week to celebrate Thank you to my helpers who shared what they love about their hair, reminding us that all hair deserves hair equality and that Afro hair is cultural and beautiful. We loved reading “My Hair” by Check out this fab display!
The Queens portrait sits above our staffroom. Walking past it every day was normal. Now it’s an end if an era. Such a sad day and our condolences of course to her family.
School will open tomorrow as usual. We will be talking with our children about the changes that this news will bring both in assemblies and in class. We will then be following this with more opportunities for pupils to learn about the life of Queen Elizabeth and her 70 year reign.
We will explain to the children that many people are going to feel sadness and grief at this news, and that they may see adults visibly upset. Loss and grief can be hard for some pupils to see and understand. We will continue to support pupils through our established wellbeing approach and keep a watchful eye for any pupils who are upset or have questions.
You can also find some helpful guidance and support at childbereavement uk- link in bio.
We anticipate that schools will be closed on the day of the funeral, and we will write to update you when this has been confirmed.
The children will still be going out to local parks later in the morning as planned for Outdoor Day. Please make sure that your child is wearing appropriate shoes/boots and a waterproof coat. Sending love to you all on this sad day

We met some pretty amazing teenagers today. Zoe the CEO and founder of came with her ambassadors all the way from Miami, Florida to talk to us about how she experienced bullying when she was younger because of the colour of her skin and that she’s on a mission to make sure other children like her know that they are perfect and beautiful just as they are. She donated so many dolls and copies of her book, I know published already and only 15! She is an inspiration and our kids were so excited to meet her and listen to her positive message and rally cry to celebrate Thank you Zoe, her ambassadors, her mum who was woken up at 3am her time to chat to us, her fab Godmothers who flew over with all the dolls and stickers and Glen from Zoe’s school for helping make this happen too. It was so lovely meeting you all!

Thanks to the sweet people who left gifts on my (very messy) desk today! One example of the many random acts of anonymous kindness spreading love and appreciation that have happened throughout our mental health and well-being week. We’ve been learning how to be a HERO: Helping Others, Exercising, Relaxing, and Opening Up. An acronym reminding us how we can help look after ourselves and others. Whether it’s gardening, reading or meditating finding time do do things you love or be with people you love is important for our well being. Exciting workshops showed us how being active and mindful make us feel great too!
