School Fund

Our school fund is vital to providing extra-curricular opportunities for our pupils and we cannot do this without your help. Thank you to the parents who have paid their one-off contribution of £15, it is greatly appreciated.

If you have not made a contribution to the school fund yet, please can we ask that you do so soon to enable us to pay for the exciting trips and workshops we have planned.

The contribution is a one-off payment of £15, but if this is too much, please make a smaller contribution. This includes pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. If every parent contributes something, it will make a real difference to what we can offer.

Unfortunately, as things stand at the moment, we may not be able to go ahead with the planned activities if we do not receive more contributions.  

Please make your one-off voluntary contribution using:

ParentPay (under the item ‘Voluntary Contribution 2017-18’)

Cheque (payable to Avenue Primary Academy)

Cash (in a clearly marked envelope, to be given to a member of staff on the gate or directly to the office who will give you a receipt)

Summer 1 Health and Wellbeing

This half term, we will be learning about topics from all of the Health and Wellbeing strands – physical, emotional and social.

We will be learning about Growth Mindset, how ‘mistakes’ can lead to good things and how to cope with ‘setbacks’.

We will be recapping positive strategies for test pressures and worries.

We will be learning about how drugs including alcohol, tobacco and ‘energy drinks’ can damage immediate and future health. Also, we will be discussing how some drugs are restricted and some are illegal to own, use and give to others e.g. performance enhancing drugs linked to our Body Works topic.

We will be teaching the following skills: a range of strategies to overcome  and manage anxiety e.g. finger breathing; yoga as a form of exercise and relaxation and mindfulness  techniques to help us prepare for SATs.

Happy Easter!

We hope that you all have a relaxing and enjoyable Easter break! You all deserve it as you have worked incredibly hard this term.

We look forward to seeing you when you come back where we know you will be ready to go for you final term at Avenue!

Have fun!

From Mrs Scammell, Miss Cook, Mr Brown and Mr Haines
