I hope you will join all the staff at KJS in welcoming Miss Lilias Amy Gordon into the world. She was born on Saturday morning at 7.48 am and is in perfect health. A huge congratulations to Mr Gordon and his wife on their first little addition to their family. Enjoy this special time and look forward to a lifetime of love and happiness.
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!

Well done to all our award winners from our achievement assembly today. You have all worked very hard in English this week and demonstrated the high standards that we expect from our pupils. Well done, also, to Kyla for impressing Mr Hull with your organisation and group working skills. For this you were awarded the Headteacher's special award! Keep up the good work.
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.

A massive congratulations to everyone who brought in their sponsorship money for taking part in the Mini-Mukker Killer Kilometre. As you can see, we have raised a phenomenal amount of money for Comic Relief. We are all very thankful to everyone for their generosity and for the children's hard work in raising this amazing total. Well done all!
A special thank you to Tyler, Hannah, Rufus, Emily, Jacob, Ashley and Jessica who between them raised a huge chunk of our total. Just the 7 of them raised £608- a sterling effort!
