Digital permission required

Here at Pinkie, we have been doing some amazing work over the last few years in the Pod…from podcasts, fantastic photo displays and some interesting short films. And we have been proud to share our learning on this blog, Twitter and YouTube. This year, we have even more interesting projects that we would like to do right across the school.

However, we need your permissions, right across the school,  to include everyone in these projects.  A form was sent out and it’s vital that it is returned. Thanks again for your help. And, as always, my door is open. If you want to discuss any of these topics, please get in touch via email in the first instance: . Thanks again for your help.

The last episode of News4U this academic year

Now the end is near. The News4U crew recorded our last podcast. We had the podders of the year there; Karen, Holly, Katie and Emma. It was emotional – we wanted to share the rules of the pod and also who we wanted to thank for our amazing stay at Pinkie.

It is a personal pod and we know we left the pod in safe hands.

So, from us, for the last time, thanks for listening.

News4U Episode 21

Welcome back to News4U. While we have been away, the usual P7 crew have been ‘transitioned’ and P6 are now P7 in pod terms. So, there have been some changes. We also said goodbye to Mr McManus, our football coach. But we did interview him and got his thoughts about school and football. We also did a survey around the school about boys and girls football. We hope you enjoy it.

Enchanted Garden Working Session – Health and Safety

Hi everyone,

There have been a number of enquiries and volunteers in the last week about this event. I thought it would be important to share the Risk Assessment undertaken by the Headteacher  -it would be good if you could take a moment to check it out  –  you can read it here.

We are going to be undertaking some heavy manual work and will depend on some reasonable common sense precautions. Whilst we will supply wheel barrows and some shovels; we must rely on volunteers themselves to have the appropriate footwear, gloves and any other clothing. Equally, this is an event where children’s participation is going to be limited and obviously parents/carers will be responsible for the control of their children. We can not allow unaccompanied children on the site.

If there are any questions or queries about arrangements – please email me directly and I will endeavour to clarify. Thanks again for your interest.
