A Visit from the Police

Many thanks to PC Gardner and PCSO Derby for coming into school yesterday. They delivered an incredibly interesting and enlightening session on internet safety, cyber bullying,  the age of legal responsibility and how to stay safe around the village. The children were all very enthused, displaying great knowledge of the law, asking lots of questions and sharing stories of their own positive interactions with the police. They even got to try on some hats too!

AVSSP Trip to Gambia

Mr Basterfield from the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership came to thank us for the money we helped raise to send sports equipment to the children in Gambia. He showed us lots of photos of some very happy children with footballs and dodgeballs. He also showed some drone footage of what it was like to live in rural Africa. Thanks for a very interesting talk in our assembly and well done to the children and the AVSSP for helping to raise money for this worthy cause.

Well done all!
