Welcome to Abbey Park First & Nursery School

Pershore Carnival

Vicky Young and Elisabeth Witter have very kindly offered to organise our schools Federation float ready for the Carnival. To date they only have a handful of helpers who have offered time to decorate the float.

This is a plea for more help please. The ladies have organised two days (Thursday 25th and Friday 26th May) when parents can come into school to build/make the decorations for the float. You don’t have to come in for the whole day, you can come in for just a morning or an afternoon if that is more convenient. If you can’t offer any time to decorate, please send in any items which you feel could be used to decorate the float with a ‘Jungle theme’, this could be coloured paint, cardboard, fabric, stuffed jungle toys, silk flowers?

Please please if you can spare just a few hours on one of the above days, do come into school and lend a hand, we will make sure that we have tea/coffee and biscuits on hand.

They cannot do it without you. We look forward to welcoming you all. Thank you so much.

Cereal bars - healthy snack or not? Some parents have commented on our removal of cereal bars as a healthy snack. This links to an article from diabetes UK which explains the high sugar content.

There is also an app called Change4LifeSugarSmart which allows you to scan barcodes to find sugar content.

Art Club - request for help We would really welcome a £3.00 donation towards the resources used at the after school Art Club. The club is free of charge and this is purely a one off contribution towards the items the children will use at the club during the Summer Term. Thank you for your support with this.

Safeguarding Children, including Child Protection, at Abbey Park Schools Federation

This school believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.

We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm. We will work co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first – unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Lynn Evans
Deputy Safeguarding Leads, including Child Protection: Nikki Poole, Claire Mitchell and Jackie Roe
Early Years Designated Safeguarding Lead: Lynn Evans
Prevent Single Point of Contact (SPOC): Lynn Evans
Safeguarding Governors: Neil Grimshaw and Nick Jones

We will review our policy and procedures on an annual basis.
