Learning Journals are a secure online reporting system that we use at Sunnyside Primary, we would like to invite any parents/carers to our workshops tonight, Monday 21st October 2019, at 3.15 and 5pm.
These workshops aim to:
- Ensure you have access to Learning Journals.
- Share how you can review and comment on observations.
- Clarify how the school uses these throughout the session.
- Share how to upload your own observations of wider acheivement.
- Answer any further questions you may have.
If you cannot make these we have also updated our Learning Journal FAQ’s – available here:
Keeping children safe online is one of our main priorities and is an area of great concern. Many of our children access the internet and social media e.g. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok with no awareness and understanding of the consequences and risks that they put themselves in.
In recent times we have seen a rise in; children who have been targeted by adults online; who have been bullied online; and who have posted inappropriate images and content which have resulted in them being significantly at risk.
Therefore we have asked NSPCC to support our mission by offering online safety workshops for parents. You may feel that you are able to monitor your child’s usage, however, we would strongly advise taking this opportunity to further support you in keeping your child safe.
This workshop is completely free, light refreshments will be provided, and will take place on Tuesday 29th October at 1:30pm and again at 4pm.
Please contact the school office if you wish to attend.
At Sunnyside we believe that education should be accessible to all and with this in mind we are launching our “Cost of the School Day” parental consultation.
It is important for us to understand how issues affect families and children’s abilities to engage with all aspects of their learning. To access this online please use the link below:

Sunnyside is opening its doors to parents once again, we are hosting an open afternoon for parents/carers to “drop in” and see learning in classes.
The school open afternoon will take place from 1:45-2:45pm. Parents do not need to stay for the full hour, as this is a drop in and lessons will be taking place as usual.
Please note P7LS will be skiing and will be hosting a separate open afternoon in November.
Our Family Learning Survey is LIVE!
The feedback you provide is invaluable, it lets us know how we are doing, and helps us to decide our next steps. It is a short, multiple choice questionnaire and should take no longer than 5 minutes.
The survey will close on Wednesday 2nd October.
Our “Meet the Teacher” event will be taking place tonight, from 5-7pm. We look forward to welcoming our families with a free scavenger hunt and refreshments provided by our Parent Council.
Sunnyside will be collecting these stickers, if you shop at Aldi and receive these vouchers please ask your child to drop them into reception.
