Positive Value of the Month

Be ready to always forgive.

'Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom.' - T. Jefferson
In March our focus value is for all our pupils to be Honest.  Good books begin with a great first chapter.  When we fail to tell the truth we start off badly. If we, however, are honest we start well.  Honesty  is always the best policy!  

Internet Safety Hint:

This month we are hoping to achieve our 360 Degree ICT E-Safety Award.  As part of this award we need to educate pupils that when they use the internet they need to be aware that information needs to be considered carefully and the source evaluated. They need to be e-SMART!
