Recent News and Events: 

Children in Need

We were delighted to be able to help raise money for Children in Need on Friday 17th November.  Children and staff dressed up, we made a copper Pudsey Bear, sold buns, brought stuffed toys and arranged a colouring competition.  Many thanks for raising money for such a worthy cause!

Girls Football Tournament

On Tuesday 10th October, a team of girls from Class 4 represented the school in a football competition. All of the girls showed excellent teamwork and determination in all of the games, with Scarlett scoring a great goal for the team. The school is very proud of their efforts. Well done!

Remembrance Assembly

On Friday we had a day to think about, and give thanks, to the brave people who have fought (and continue to fight) to help keep us safe.  Many  children brought in pictures and artefacts about members of their family which we added to our memorial.  Every child made a poppy to add to their class wreath.

Stand Up Bolsover

On Friday 29th September, Scarcliffe and many other schools in the local area took part in Stand Up Bolsover day. The day was filled with active learning activities which encouraged children to move more! Here are some photos from each class's activities from the day:

Scarcliffe's Food and Cultural Week

During Food and Cultural Week, all classes took part in a range of activities including food tasting, cooking, growing in the school garden, researching different countries and their cultures. We shared our learning with the rest of the school in assembly at the end of the week and invited parents and carers to our Food and Cultural event where each class raised money for Red Nose Day.

Zoolab visits Scarcliffe

During science week, Scarcliffe was visited by Zoolab where we got to meet all sorts of wonderfuly interesting creatures.

Safeguarding children

The most important job we have in school is to keep our pupils safe.  All staff receive regular safeguarding training and we systems to ensure that any risks or concerns are reported and dealt with quickly.  

In school we have two designated safeguarding leads. They are Mr Marsh and Mrs Smith.  Our lead safeguarding governor is Mrs Smyth.  If you ever have any safeguarding concerns you can always speak to any member of staff. 

One of the biggest challenges we face nowadays is keeping children safe online.  We work hard to make sure children have the skills and knowledge needed.  

Below are a number of links that you can use to help keep your children safe when they are on the Internet.

If you are concerned about your child's online safety it might need to be reported to the police.  You can do this by reporting concerns to CEOP.  Click on the image below for more information and to make a report.
