During the week beginning the 16th April we will be talking to the children about the NSPCC Pants Rule. During these discussions, we will aim to teach our pupils the following important safety skills without giving explicit information or telling scary stories. We will be teaching our children how to stay safe by learning the PANTS rules, which the NSPCC have developed to be like a Green Cross Code for staying safe from abuse. PANTS stands for:
Privates are private
Always remember your body belongs to you
No means no
Talk about secrets that upset you
Speak up, someone can help
Attached to this letter is an information pack produced by the NSPCC which explains in more detail about the aims of teaching children the pants rule and ways parents can have simple conversations about staying safe from abuse.
From the 16th to the 20th of April, we will be showing the pants video to the children everyday and talking to the children about what PANTS stands for.
Below is the link if you would like to have a look at the video we will be showing the children:

As you know we have been cashless since 1st September 2016. This means that we will not be accepting any more cheques or cash in school for your child’s dinner money.
You will now be able to pay for your child/ren’s school meals / Trips and Uniform online and payment will be taken by debit or credit card there and then. Please note you will need to have an email address as your receipt for your records will be sent to that email address.
Go to www.schoolmoney.co.uk – this will take you to the homepage. In the top right hand corner you will see the ‘parents click here to login’ click this button which will take you to the next page.
1. Input your mobile number, email address and password (that was given by the school)
2. Type in your child’s first name only (you can type any child’s name if you have more than one in school) then click confirm.
You will now be taken to the payments screen. You will now be able to view each child’s dinner money account and make payments.
If you are unsure of how to use this system please come to the main office and leave your name and contact number as we will arrange a support session. If we should receive a high volume of interest in those who require support, we will arrange for a group demonstration of the system.
Thank you for your continued support.
