Our latest Prince Albert Community Trust Online Safety Update newsletter is out now!
Produced on a half termly basis to keep you up-to-date with Online Safety news, new ICT initiatives and ways in which you can help to keep your family safe both online and when using emerging technology.
We hope you enjoy reading 'Issue 23: December and Christmas 2018' online now.
In this issue we look at how when you set up a new bit of tech, many of the apps will automatically offer the opportunity to share your location. We look at the issues you need to consider before deciding whether to share your child’s location...as well as recommended apps for location tracking. We also look at some Christmas conversation starter tips to help children deal with online issues and open up about their digital lives.
If you have a concern regarding your child's use of the internet at home or in school, you can speak to one of our Online Safety Leads for support and advice.
School will close for all children on Friday 21stDecember 2018.
As this is the end of term, home dinners will be collected at normal time but there will be no Friday club so all children who stay for dinner will need to be collected at 1pm.
School will reopen for the Spring term on Tuesday 8thJanuary 2019 at 8:45am.
On behalf of everyone at Highfield School, I wish those of you who are celebrating Christmas a very Merry Christmas and wish those of you who do not celebrate, a very relaxing break.
Enjoy the holiday and Happy New Year to you all. Thank you for your continued support this term.

Year 1 have a very exciting day planned on Thursday 20thDecember for their WOW day. The classrooms are going to transform into Elf Workshops and throughout the day they will be joining in with a range of Christmas activities including arts, crafts and baking.
The children are therefore able to come to school dressed as elves and do not need to wear their school uniform.If your child does not have an elf/Christmassy outfit please send them in a red or green t-shirt and we will make elf hats/ears etc. for them to wear during the WOW day.
We are looking forward to a day of fun and celebration with the children!

Throughout the autumn term, Year 4 have been studying the Romans in their Learning for Life lessons. As the term is now coming to an end, we would like to celebrate the children’s learning in an art themed WOW day on Tuesday 11thDecember 2018, where the children will participate in a number of Roman themed art lessons that will help the children to immerse themselves into this topic one last time.
There will be no charge for this experience but all that we ask is that your child brings in a piece of cardboard, about the size of a cereal box, so that they can create a Roman shield. The WOW day will take place on school grounds and will follow the same times as a regular school day.
We are also inviting the children to dress up in traditional Roman clothing for the day and it would add to the excitement of the day if your child could join in. We have given you some examples below as inspiration. If your child is not coming in Roman clothing they should wear their full school uniform.
If you have any questions, please see your child’s class teacher.
