A big thank you to all of the children who have donated a book to the school library in celebration of their birthday. These will bring much pleasure to those who read them and give a lasting memory of the children’s time at Welton St. Mary’s Primary Academy.
The books that we receive are acknowledged by a book plate with the child’s name. and are added to the range in our school library, enabling our children to access a varied genre, and leave a lasting legacy to future children.
School Year 2018/19

Later this term, the children in Years 2 and Years 6 will be taking their statutory National Curriculum tests. Thank you to the parents who attended the workshops to gain more information about the tests the children will be taking. The parental feedback has been very positive as to how they can support their children further on the run up to these tests.

Social Media, Gaming and the Internet
In this digital age it is becoming increasingly difficult for parents to control what their children are exposed to and for children to protect themselves on the range of social media platforms available. The dangers from the internet may seem like a distant problem, but Lincolnshire schools are informing the police, daily, of internet issues relating to areas such as cyber bullying and child grooming. In addition to this, radicalisation and extremism is a concern in Lincolnshire. Whilst we try our very best to educate the next generation, the speed at which the internet grows and changes can be difficult to comprehend. For this reason we must ensure that our children are willing to talk to trusted adults about their experiences online.
Attached are a list of prompts and conversation starters to make this process easier- remember the children are the experts in this digital age and we can learn just as much from them as they can from us.
If you would like to know more about how you can keep your children safe online the thinkuknow website – https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/ – a fantastic resource which offers many up to date and helpful tips to assist you. There is also a website advising about radicalisation and extremism http://www.educateagainsthate.com/parents/
– which is a useful resource.

We always welcome support from parent, carer, friends and members of the community. We believe you can add an enormous value to the children’s learning opportunities. There are different ways of getting involved. Would you like to get involved in helping in the class room? Are you available for school visits? If you have any time that you could offer to support our children whether it be on a regular basis or just on occasions we would love to hear from you.
What skills do you have to offer? Are you a qualified football coach? Do you enjoy music? Have you travelled? Can you speak another language? All of these are just examples of some of the skills that we would love you to be able to share with our children.
Welton St. Mary’s Primary Academy is committed to the safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All volunteers will be subject to a DBS check, prior to working with our children.
