Weduc app will be updated in the Easter holidays to be called ‘Reach More Parents’

New Reach More Parents App is coming!

Weduc has redesigned the App for Reach More Parents with major enhancements to the layout, accessibility, and general ease of use.

What do I need to do as a parent? If your phone has automatic updates turned on, there is nothing you need to do, as the app will update automatically on 03/04/2023. If you do not have automatic updates turned on, you will need to re-download the app from the App Store if you have an iPhone or the Google Play Store if you have an Android.

Can I still access the same features? Yes. The features you already use such as Newsfeed, Absence Reporting and Messaging are still accessible.

What’s new? You can find a PDF document attached which will give you a detailed breakdown of everything that has changed in the app.

Year 6 and social media

Dear Parents,

I am writing to you with regards growing concerns surrounding pupils in Year 6 using social media (at this time Snapchat) and the use of inappropriate and threatening behaviour. Whilst this is happening out of school, our ultimate concern is the wellbeing and safety of all our pupils with the added fact that this is spilling over into school life.

Going forward, our goal is to ensure that pupils are respectful and safe at all times. In school, this is underpinned through teaching a rigorous PSHE and computing programme which also includes e-safety and ‘getting on/falling out’/maintaining healthy relationships.

The minimum age for using Snapchat is 13 years old (which no Year 6 child is). As a school, safeguarding our children is of paramount importance. Children using their phones unregulated on age inappropriate apps/social media is a significant safeguarding concern. We are bound to investigate any concerns which would lead to other agency involvement.

With this in mind, I would appreciate your support through the following actions:

  • Discuss with your child how and when they are using their devices.
  • Talk openly with your child regarding the benefits and risks associated with social media.
  • Review apps that are being used and their age ratings.
  • Follow guidance on parental controls that can be put in place to further support monitoring and usage of devices and apps (if required).
  • Discuss with your child about how they conduct themselves online and the lasting impressions this can give.

Please visit our Internet Safety Page. In addition, please visit the NSPCC website which provides details of age ratings etc.

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your cooperation.


Mr Lowrie-Herz

Children’s Mental Health Week

Next week, it is Children’s Mental Health Week.  We would like to show our support for this by joining in with their ‘Dress to Express’ day next Friday 10th February.  The children can come to school in their own clothes to express their personality.

If your child/children has PE on this day then they can either bring their PE kit to get changed, bring some trainers or do PE in their own clothes if they are already suitable (i.e. trainers and tracksuit bottoms).

The week is run by a charity called Place 2 Be.  We are joining in with the activities and Dress to Express day to raise awareness of children’s mental health, however, if you would like to make a donation to the Place 2 Be Charity you can do so through their website directly.
