Will you be a Parent Governor for Mill Water?
We are looking for enthusiastic and committed parents from a variety of backgrounds to join our friendly, active and motivated Governing Board. Your special quality is being a parent of a Mill Water pupil. It doesn’t matter how long your child has been at the school.
The children had great fun learning about and using numbers in activities, games and play. The newsletter next week will showcase all the day had on offer but here is a little taster.
National Online Safety
Learn how to encourage open discussions about young people’s digital lives. Simply checking in with them regularly about their experiences in the digital world, both good and bad, is a brilliant way to engage with what they are currently into online. It also acts as a valuable early warning system about potential issues.
You can register with our school here to create a free account, download the National Online Safety App and access all of the free resources.
