Online Safety
Next Tuesday at school, we will be learning and celebrating Online Safety Day.
The national Online Safety theme for this year is called ‘Want to Talk about it?’. We will be giving our pupils the opportunity to explore and discuss this in more detail.

Your child will have several activities uploaded to their Year Group Google Classroom, where they can explore the theme in more detail. Please encourage your child to talk about their learning.

Please remember to access other useful websites on your child’s Google Classroom such as: The Worry Box, Childnet and thinkuknow.
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Mr Steven Matthews. Mr Matthews has retired after working at Upton Cross for just over 25 years. He has supported many generations of our families over his time here and has been more than a site supervisor to staff, children, and families at Upton Cross, always going above and beyond to help. Nothing was ever a problem, from painting the corridors to coaching our football teams.

Mr Matthews has been a valued member of the Upton Cross staff and will be missed by all.
We wish him health and happiness in his retirement, and would like him to know that he will always be part of our Upton Cross family.
