Art Competition - British Values
Well done to all the children who entered our art competition linked to the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance .  The range and quality of the artwork was very impressive.  Fortunately, it wasn't down to me to choose the winners as I would have found it impossible.  Our new Vicar, David, along with some of our governors selected winners and runner-up from across the school who will all be entered into the Young Artists Summer show run by the Royal Academy of Arts. 

Congratulations to Imogen in Y1,  Holly in Y4 and Charlotte in Y6 who were the winners in their age categories.

EY/KS1 Winner - The Kindness Balloon

I think kindness is all around and in every person in the universe.

Being kind is a nice thing to do because we need to stick together.

My balloon is full of kindness and it shows kindness can travel everywhere.

Road Safety

Di Lollypop and several parents have contacted the school with concerns about the safety of children on the road at the start and end of the day.

As a response in school we have drawn the theme of being safe on the road into our Worships.  All the children in Early Years and Year 1 have also had training with Di Lollypop about crossing roads safely.  As a follow up, please can you watch and discuss the video below with you child:

Crossing roads safely

Road safety is a common concern around all schools at such busy periods during the day.  The narrow high street also makes it challenging for us. Unfortunatley, unsafe parking by some on the zigzag lines is increasing the risk that a child  from PaWS  will be knocked down and injured.  Please can I ask all parents to consider where they park to reduce the likelihood of anybody being hurt outside the school.
This week's attendance was 96.5% across the whole school. 
 
Well done to Elves Class for 100% attendance this week!
When coming on to site, we ask all adults to maintain social distancing and, unless exempt, to wear a face covering.  Thank you for your support.
Equality and Accessibility Survey

Thank you to all our parents and carers who completed our recent Equality and Accessibility survey.  100 parents completed the survey.   Congratulations to Dawn Tomlyn who has had their name was drawn and has won a £10 Amazon voucher.

Some of your responses included:
 
97% of parents/carers ‘strongly agree’ or ‘agree’ that Pevensey and Westham School equips their child well for life in modern day society (promoting tolerance, values and resilience).

92% of parents/carers ‘strongly agree’ or ‘agree’ that Pevensey and Westham School’s curriculum covers a wide range of religions and beliefs.

77% of parents/carers ‘strongly agree’ or ‘agree’ that Pevensey and Westham School promotes positive images of ethnic minorities in the newsletter and on the website.

 
We have used your responses in developing our Equality Objectives and our Accessibility Plan.  You can view these documents here:

RSHE Life Skills
Last year we shared with parents and carers the national guidance in the teaching of relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education.  At PaWS we teach this as part of our Relationships, Sex, Health and Economics education (RSHE Life Skills).

At the time, we carried out a parent survey. We have taken your responses into account, in addition to further feedback this term, in developing our draft RSHE Life Skills policy.  Alongside the national guidance, we have also used both the Goodness and Mercy - RSHE for Church of England Schools resources and the East Sussex model policy.
