Armistice Day 2018
On Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th November, St Peter's Church in Isham will be hosting a WW1 Armistice Centenary Exhibition and service. The exhibition will include: displays, photos, reference books, information about the war and wartime documents, to name a few, as well as exhibits from our own school children and young church members.
The exhibition is open on Saturday from 10am to 5pm and on Sunday from 10am to 4pm. There will be a service of Remembrance at 9 o'clock on Sunday.
Internet Safety Evening
Wednesday 28th November, 6-7pm
This month we will be holding our regular Internet Safety Evening in school. The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect - opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But with the digital world changing all the time, we need to make sure we are keeping our children safe.
There are a number of dangers children face online, including the likelihood of cyberbullying, possible exposure to inappropriate content and vulnerability to online predators. Additionally, children who aren’t educated about the internet are more likely to get malware infections or share personal information online.
These dangers can have serious consequences, ranging from computer infections and identity theft to emotional and psychological damage. As a parent, it’s important for you to understand the risks and dangers posed by the internet, and how to best guide your children through them.
Our Internet Safety Evening aims to provide you with the right knowledge and tools so that you are able to keep your child safe in our ever changing world. It is not just aimed at parents of older children, as it is hugely beneficial to have a greater understanding of the dangers before your children become involved in social media and online gaming. Also, if you have previously attended one of our sessions, we do encourage you to attend again; the online world is constantly changing with new apps and games coming out all the time.
We cannot stress enough how important it is to fully understand the risks that your children face every time they go online. It is heartbreaking to hear the ever increasing stories of children, as young as seven, falling victim to online predators in our local area.
Please join us and help keep all our children safe!
Christmas Tree Festival
We hope many of you will support the Isham Christmas Tree Festival on Saturday 24th November. Our very own choir will be performing in St Peter's Church at 2 o'clock and all the children will be helping to decorate our tree for the festival. Alongside the festival, FOIS are also organising a Christmas Fair in school so, as well as getting into the Christmas spirit, you will also be able to do some Christmas shopping or just take some time to relax with some refreshments.
Admissions 2019 Reminder
For those of you with children who will be 4 between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019, our Open Hours for the 2019 intake are shown below. Please confirm your attendance by email or by calling 01536723956 and speaking to Sue Wood or Susanna Hogan.
Open Hours run from 11am-12pm and the remaining dates are:
- Tuesday 20th November 2018
- Friday 11th January 2019
The invite is for the full hour. You will have chance to hear a little about our school, meet the team, have a look around and ask any questions. The Exec-Head Teacher will also talk through the admissions process and how to apply to us - slightly different given our Academy status and our VA heritage.
The hour is intended for parents only and, whilst we don't seek to be awkward, we feel it would be easier for you to come without children in tow. That said, if it's impossible, we do understand.
The closing date for applications is 15th January 2019 (5pm)
