Anti-Bullying Week 14th-18th November 2022

Through the week, the children have spent time focusing on our anti-bullying work. Daily activities have helped the children to understand that managing conflict is an important part of growing up and that bullying is not simply a 'falling out'. This YouTube clip helps to reinforce this.


In lessons, the children have thought about attributes such as kindness, respect, tolerance and understanding which help the children to be good friends to help avoid issues. We have also discussed what to do if someone is being bullied and different approaches that can help or hinder situations.

What is Bullying - Anti-Bullying Alliance

The Ant-Bullying Alliance defines bullying as the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or online. You can find out more at

Year 2 children will complete their SATs tests in the last two weeks before May half-term.


The Year 2 tests are not strictly timed to reduce the pressure in a test situation. There is no set timetable for the Year 2 SATs other than they need to be completed in May.


Our 'provisional' timetable is as follows:

Friday 20th May – English – Reading – Paper 2

Tuesday 24th May – Spelling

Wednesday 25th May – Grammar and Punctuation


During SATs week, please ensure your child arrives at school on time so they have had time to settle down before the test begins. A good night's sleep, as well as a healthy breakfast, will also help your child's concentration during the tests.
