This week has been the National Anti-Bullying Week with the focus of 'Change Starts with Us.'  Throughout the week, all of the classes did some work around this topic, with every class showing their work during Friday's assembly.  On Thursday, Year 6 had an external company come in and complete a drama workshop with them. The focus of this was around social media and the issues which may arise when using it or being pressured to use it.  They also performed this during the assembly.  Thank you to the Year 6 parents, friends and carers who were able to come and watch them; I think you will agree they did a great job!

Awesome showing from our girls' Football team today at the Altrincham Football Club Winter Tournament. Despite the cold weather and a wet walk to Timperley Sports Club, the girls played amazingly. They won two and drew two games to finish 2nd in the group stage. This set us up for an epic semi final vs Heyes Lane, which we trailed by one goal all the way up to the final kick of the game. Stamford Park were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box, it was a goal now or we were going home, a brilliant shot right into the bottom corner! This took us to penalties which the girls held their nerve to take them through to the final. 

 

After a very close and hard fought final Bowden C of E came out on top 1-0. Myself and Mr Heathcote were so impressed with the Football they showed as well as their teamwork and maturity. We look forward to the next one, well done girls!

Our new academic year is off to a great start and we would like to welcome all the new children who have joined Stamford Park Junior School. It's lovely to see everyone back too after the summer break.

 

As part of the new DFE guidance for the implementation of the Relationships and Sex Education statutory curriculum as of September 2020, we have become an early adopter school and will be introducing a new weekly lesson scheme called 'JIGSAW'. Clearly stated within the Government guidance, only 'Relationships' is to be taught in Primary schools, with 'Sex Education' being statutory in Secondary schools. Although Primary schools may teach parts of Sex Education (outside of the statutory Science lessons), as a school we have chosen not to do this and just to focus on 'Relationships' at this time.

 

If you wish to find out more about this, on Wednesday 18th September (6.15pm - 7.15pm) we will be holding a parent information session. This will be run by JIGSAW and will give parents an opportunity to find out more about the scheme. Mrs Southworth will also be available to answer any questions that you may have regarding this.

Yesterday, we sent home a letter outlining the proposed changes to our Homework Policy, based on recent feedback from parents, the school council and teachers too. If parents do have any additional feedback regarding these changes, please do contact the school office. As I'm sure you can appreciate, we received a high number of suggestions and have had to incorporate the ones that we feel will be most beneficial to the children.

Today NSPCC visited the children to talk to them about keeping safe. They delivered an assembly to the whole school, introducing their mascot, Buddy. The year 5 and 6 children had workshops to discuss in more detail ways to stay safe and a reminder of how they can talk to trusted and safe adults or contacting them directly through their confidential number.

As part of our PE and PSHE lessons, we will be teaching the children basic first aid. Mr Spinola has been teaching the recovery position as part of his PE lessons in Year 6. This will continue in the summer term and become part of our taught curriculum from September. We think this is a really important life skill for the children and hope that they will share their learning with you.
