Safer Internet Day

8 February 2015


SAFER INTERNET DAY - “Let’s create a better internet together”.

Dear Parents,

Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world. (http://www.saferinternet.org/safer-internet-day )

On Tuesday February 10th every class at Crossdale will be considering how we use the internet and how we can use it safely. Please ask your children to discuss what they have learnt and what they have been talking about.

As previously indicated, we will also be holding a short meeting for parents and carers at 6pm on the 10th to share information about how we use technology at school and what you can do at home to support our e-safety strategies.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Happy Birthday to Crossdale!

Crossdale School is celebrating its 40th birthday in 2014/15. As part of the celebrations we will be having a party for the children, during school time on the 11th February. On that day we’ll be planning fun activities and telling the children a little bit about the school’s history. Children can come in none-uniform and we’ll be awarding prizes to children who come in 1970s fancy dress. The staff are all rooting through their cupboards at the moment, looking for flares and maxi-dresses! We’ll be having a birthday cake competition on the day – send in your cakes in for the Crossdale Bake Off!


Over the coming months we’re also hoping to complete ‘40 things to do at 40’. The party will be the first and we’ll keep a blog on our website of the other 39. Watch this space and let us know if you have any ideas!
