School News - 8th May 2024

Summer Term 2024

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope everyone enjoyed the extra day together last weekend, it was lovely seeing the sun too! Thank you to all of parents and carers who were able to share our first coffee morning introducing how we support Wellbeing at Goldthorn Park Primary. It was so well attended and parents valued having time to talk to others about school, home and share experiences. Our colleagues from Reflexions were available to talk to parents about their concerns around anxiety and the support they can provide. Congratulations to the Wellbeing Hamper winners too.

There has been great excitement in Early Years over the past couple of weeks as we were able to hatch ducklings helping our children learn about animals and their lifecycles. As well as the ducklings, the fire service came to visit and the children LOVED the lights and sirens and exploring the fire engine.

Next week sees our Year 6 pupils sitting their SATs in school. Our pupils and staff have worked very hard to prepare and are looking forward to the challenge that awaits. Year 6 pupils have been invited, and are encouraged, to attend our SATs breakfast in the hall from 8:15 from Monday to Thursday where they can access a range of breakfast items and relax with their friends.

Thank you all for your ongoing support.

Best wishes,

Mrs R. Purshouse



A reminder that school works hard to maintain positive relationships with our local residents as we appreciate how drop off and pick up times can be very busy. Can we all please ensure that driveways are not blocked so local residents can leave their properties? Where possible we would encourage parking a little further away and walking around to school as Ward Rd can get very congested


Nut Free School

At Goldthorn Park Primary School we have 5 pupils with allergies so severe that they must carry medication with them at all times. In order to keep ALL of our children safe and well we MUST NOT have nuts of any form in school. This includes: Nutella, Ferrero Roche, snickers and any other foods containing nuts. If you are not sure if food items contain nuts please check at the School Office.


Online Safety - Passwords

Teaching children about password safety is crucial for their online security. Here are some simplified tips that you can share with them to help them stay safe:

Create a strong password: Use a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols to make your password strong. Avoid using easy-to-guess passwords like "123456" or "password."

Keep it secret: Don't share your password with friends or anyone who isn't your parent or a trusted adult. If someone knows your password, they could access your information or pretend to be you online.

Use different passwords: Have a different password for each account. If someone finds out one password, they won't be able to get into all your other accounts.

Change passwords regularly: Change your passwords every few months to keep your accounts safer. Remember your passwords: If you have trouble remembering your passwords, write them down and keep them in a safe place that only you and your parents know about. Never leave your passwords where someone else can find them.

Ask for help: If you're not sure if something is safe, or if you think someone else knows your password, tell a parent or another trusted adult.


Medical updates

A reminder to parents to update school records where medical conditions are diagnosed so we can ensure the correct support is available in school. This includes asthma, epilepsy and allergies alongside other medical conditions which may require medical intervention and support.
