As part of the computing curriculum, all children have e-safety lessons and children in Years 5 and 6 have additional e-safety sessions with the local authority e-safety adviser. While the internet is incredibly useful, it is vital that children know how to stay safe on line. There have been recent concerns in the press about the gaming app Roblox, with reports of children seeing inappropriate images and the messaging facility allowing children to be contacted by strangers. It would be worthwhile checking if your child has a Roblox account and the restrictions that you have set on it to ensure that your child does not encounter these issues. Please always monitor your child if they are playing or working on line.

On the Tuesday before half term, our Top of the Form team won their match against St Elpheges. The team (Sophia, Hari, Iniyaa and
Tanuri) had to answer a series of general knowledge questions, some of which were very tricky. Winning this match means that
they are now through to the quarter final.

Miss Newton, our PE leader, has details of a swimming gala that some of our children (Year 4 upwards) may be interested in entering and being part of the Devonshire team. Children must be able to swim 25 metres competently and confidently and know the ASA swimming rules. If your child would be interested in being part of the Devonshire team, please can you email Miss Newton, using the school email address, with details of their age, stroke and times so that she can see if they would qualify.

This week, I will be giving our sports leaders their badges and they will be wearing them with pride. Our sports leaders are children from Year 6 who organise activities for younger children at lunchtime. This year, our sports leaders are Maddison, Jeet, Lina, Sarah, Mya Grey, Dylan, Marissa, Sophia, Hayley, Nicol, Freddie, Mia, Alex, Diyora, Harry, Bright, Laura, Eleesha and Jeet.

On Monday 15th January (10am – 12pm) at The Coffee Lounge, Wallington United Reformed Church, Stanley Park Road, Wallington there is a friendly and informal drop in support group for parents and carers of children with additional needs. Mark Brown is an expert in a range of issues including toileting, sleep, behaviour, obsessions, puberty and much more. He has worked with many families to help them overcome a wide range of issues. He is generously donating his time for free to help local families, so come along and get his advice and meet other parents who are in a similar position to you. There is no cost for this session, although a £1 donation would be appreciated.

If anyone from Year 1 - 3 is interested in their child taking up the recorder and learning to read music there will hopefully be a new group beginning lessons some time this term. The recorder is a nice easy starter instrument for young children to learn to play and learn how to read music at the same time. I use a special colour coded system to appeal to younger children and group sizes are kept small so they learn very fast. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please email me as soon as possible if interested at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The cost is £35 per half term for group recorder lessons.

Mrs Humphreys and Mrs Herd have both joined the Y5 team as teaching assistants. Mrs Page has joined the Sparrows team as the class teacher for 3 days a week. Miss Grefaite has joined the midday supervisor team.

We have a new family support worker starting at Devonshire this week. Miss Hannah Green will no longer be based at Devonshire, Mrs Emma Green is our new family support worker. She will provide exactly the same advice and support as Hannah and will be based at Devonshire on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We are looking forward to welcoming Emma to the Devonshire team. Thank you to Hannah for everything you have done at Devonshire.

If you wish to speak to the family support worker please make an appointment at the school office or she will be at the school gate on the mornings of the days that she works in school.
