Safer Internet Day

posted 6 Feb 2018, 01:15 by Chris Metcalfe

Today is Internet Safety Day. To promote internet safety in school we cover it as part of the computing curriculum throughout the academic year. In addition, we also celebrate days like today and have clear classroom rules in place for the children. 

The use of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) including the Internet, email, learning platforms and today’s mobile technologies are an integral element of learning in our school. To make this as successful and as beneficial as possible for all learners, we expect all pupils to act safely and responsibly when using technology both within, and outside of, the school environment.

This is particularly relevant when using Social Network Sites that are becoming increasingly popular amongst both the adult population and young people. However, many sites do have age-restriction policies where the minimum acceptable age is 13 years. Any child who sets up or uses such a site and is below the acceptable age is in clear breach of these age-restriction policies and therefore we actively discourage this in our school.

Your child should have brought home with them a copy of Digital Parenting Magazine and our ICT Acceptable Use Policy for Pupils. Please could you read and discuss the acceptable use policy with your child and return the completed form as soon as possible?

If you would like more support with keeping children safe on the internet, please visit: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/ or talk to a member of staff.

Sandringham is an Autism Friendly School

posted 30 Jan 2018, 10:59 by Sandringham School

Recently, as part of a local authority initiative, we have been collating evidence to showcase the great work our members of staff have been doing to support the children we have in school with autism. This evidence has been submitted to the Local Authority, who have acknowledged our inclusive practice and commitment towards ensuring all children achieve, and awarded us with 'The Autism Charter Mark'. 

We are now an 'Autism Friendly' School.

Parliamentary Praise for Breakfast Club Pupils

posted 12 Dec 2017, 08:27 by Chris Metcalfe

Sandringham Primary School's Breakfast Club is celebrating today after receiving the Kellogg's Breakfast Club of the Year Award for Yorkshire and Humberside. 

Setting off early this morning, several pupils travelled with Mrs Kean and Mrs Quinn to Westminster to collect the award. We are really grateful to Rosie Winterton MP who welcomed the group to the Houses of Parliament, giving them a personal tour and making the day extra special. A plaque to celebrate Sandringham's success was presented to the group which will be proudly displayed when they return to school. 

A huge well done to our Breakfast Club team for their fantastic work, which can now be extended to provide more pupils with a healthy breakfast with the support of Kellogg's.

Christmas Is In The Building!

Christmas has arrived at Sandringham!  Our halls are decked and we're getting ready for all of the Christmas events that we have planned over the next few weeks. Your child should bring home a letter today with all of these, and a copy can also be viewed in our letters section by clicking here.

Pupils have also been busy making our Christmas Post Boxes that will be based in each building for children to post their cards in from Monday 4th December. Please remember to include include names and class information on envelopes for the person who will receive the post.

Sandringham Shines As STARS School Of Doncaster

posted 17 Nov 2017, 12:02 by Sandringham School

Pupils and staff are jumping, cycling, scooting and walking for joy as Sandringham Primary School has become the 2017 STARS School of Doncaster.  

Mr Gunn, our active travel champion, joined Mrs Watts and four of our pupils to collect the award at today's prestigious ceremony in Leeds.  The event was a great opportunity for Sandringham and the other nominated schools to share best practice and celebrate our achievements.  

Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.  The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people. Sandringham is one of over 3000 schools to have joined the STARS scheme across the region, and one of just over 900 to have received formal accreditation.  Completing an application for Modeshift STARS also means that we automatically have a national standard School Travel Plan.

A huge well done to Mr Gunn for leading this aspect of the school's work, and to pupils, their families and staff for supporting active travel.
