Mobile free zone
Our children have been discussing, in their classes, about the use of mobile phones in the school playground. They have decided that the playground is now a 'mobile free' zone. See below for some ideas of ways to start and make conversations with the children.
You can also visit the website below to find ideas about ways to promote conversation and a nice activity to encourage this:
Academy Council Members serve for a year, from February. Members are nominated, then elected by their peers with additional community nominees being selected by the Educate Together Academy Trust Board.
We recently talked to Year 1 and 2 parents about the assessment procedures for both year groups. The powerpoint is available here.
80by18 is essentially 80 things you should look to do in Bristol before you're 18. These are all free Bristol-based activities to do with the children. We have a reward system in place for anyone who completes 10, 20, 30 etc challenges.
The E-Safety presentation can now be seen here.
At Educate Together we actively encourage the involvement of parents in the education of your children. Research shows that children do better in school if parents take an active part in their child's education.
How can you do this?
- Come in every morning for the first ten minutes to learn with your child
- Read to your child and with your child
- Hear them read their books regularly - at least five times a week
- Find out and learn with your child about the topics they are doing - the teachers will give you this information at the start of every new term
- Visit the school often and talk to the teachers and also spend time in the classroom - there will be plenty of opportunities to do this and we will let you know.
- Shopping and cooking with your child will be an excellent way to use maths
- Attend open days and open evenings
- Help out in the class by hearing readers, playing maths games, getting involved in creative activities, helping on trips, accompanying the children and teachers to the park, helping a language lesson
- Use your skills and talents to help us
Having your say and getting involved?
- Become a parent Council Member - there will be an election every February until all year groups are in the school.
- Respond to questionnaires and surveys
- Talk to the teachers and the Headteacher
- Join Friends of Redfield Educate Together (FORET)
- Attend parent forums and parent information afternoon/evenings
- Come to family breakfasts, not Tuesdays in the school hall
Don't forget to tell us if your phone number or address change.
