07/11/2018 - NSPCC visit

The NSPCC will be visiting St Francis over the next couple of weeks:

12th – 26th November - The NSPCC will be in school for their Speak Out/Stay Safe programme and fundraising activity.


12th – 16th November – To acknowledge anti-bullying week and to think of how all different children are, our children will be invited to wear odd socks at some point during that week.


On Monday 26th November, the NSPCC will be holding a parent workshop on online safety between 3:30 – 4:30pm in the school hall.  This is for parents only.  If you cannot provide child care at this time, children can wait in a class room where we will play a dvd or they can read quietly.  Children cannot be left at school unsupervised.  Please email if you would like to attend and require a space for childcare.

If any parents feel the visit may give concerns, please contact your class teacher.
