As we now live in a world that is driven by technology, the chances of encountering a situation that you can find uncomfortable online are much higher than they were say a decade ago. Here are a few tips to help you in case this happens to you.
The most important tip of all though is to “tell someone”.

Parents were recently invited to an E-Safety workshop. The importance of checking computer settings, knowing the games children are playing and talking to the children are key to keeping children safe online.
Look out for our video covering a number of great tips on cyber safety and combating cyber bullying.
St Mary Magdalene School recently underwent a SIAMs Inspection. SIAMs, or Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Mehtodist School examines how well a school has developed and implemented an inclusive and distinctive Christian vision. They also look at how well the school lives out that Christian vision.
Our inspector had some very positive feedback throughout the inspection. We will be distributing a full report from the inspector in due course so please look out for that.
We are very excited to be working in partnership with All Saints Church, Peckham to run a CAP Money Course Racheal and Winifred led a Kids CAP Money Course with members of our Faith Group which explores the value of money in a fun, engaging and relevant way.
Children in Years 4, 5 and 6 will be completing the course after half term.
Everyone at SMMS was very excited to welcome The Multi Story Orchestra to our school early May. The musicians presented a range of instruments and invited us to join in different songs. Year 5 & 6 have had sessions with members of the Orchestra!
The children thoroughly enjoyed the session, where they got to write a part of a song, and help compose the music. The Orchestra members were then able to put music to the song and the children were treated to listening to the Violin and Piano! The final performance will take place at 6pm on the 13th June at Bold Tendencies car park.
Year 4 visited The Royal Festival Hall this week to launch their orchestra project. The Royal Festival Hall is London’s leading music venue located on the banks of the River Thames at the heart of Southbank Centre. As well as a 2,700 capacity auditorium, the Royal Festival Hall is also where you’ll find The Clore Ballroom, and the National Poetry Library. Opened in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain, the Grade I listed Hall is one of the world’s leading performance venues.
The children learnt about all types of different instruments. They learnt about the string family,woodwind family and percussion family of instruments. The children had an amazing day and look forward to returning soon.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who joined us for our class topic launches today. We hope you enjoyed being immersed in our new topics which included a visit to India, the Great Fire of London and thinking about people who help us.
We hope you enjoyed it and carry on talking to your children about their learning.
We enjoyed a wonderful time of celebration at St Mary’s Church this week at our Easter Service. Reverend Jonathan Mortimer and Abie Everett from all Saints Church, Peckham led the service with our Faith Group.
They told the Easter story through sharing: bad news, worse news and good news and Gospel Choir sang beautifully. Thank you to everyone who made a donation to Lent Call 2019.
