Williamwood Cluster, Special Visitors
Everyone in Netherlee, as part of the Williamwood Cluster, is looking forward to a visit, next week, from several East Renfrewshire Council ‘special visitors’. Staff and children will be sharing our successes and progress towards meeting targets in our SNIP (School and Nursery Improvement Plan). We will also reflect on our journey through Covid times; recognising, not only the many challenges but also, the steady progress that staff and families made, as a Netherlee community working together, during lockdown. We are also excited to be welcoming five Head Teachers, from other schools and nurseries across the council, who will also visit us next week. During their visit, they will be able to see the wide range of learning and teaching experiences which happen each day in Netherlee and how we nurture and support our pupils. They will also engage in lots of discussion about this with lots of different groups of people too. This is also a fantastic opportunity for us all to be able to celebrate being able to now return to a more full curriculum for our pupils.
Family First is a free, confidential advice and information resource in East Renfrewshire for parents and carers of children aged 0-11. The team can offer support and advice on issues surrounding health, home, money, parenting, additional support needs and confidence building. Further information is contained in the attachment leaflet.
Some of our children’s sleep patterns may have been affected by the clocks changing at the weekend. We have been asked to share the attached Sleep Business Card as this takes you straight to lots of up to date information about developing good sleep patterns. We’re all very aware that sleep is vital to children’s, and adults) health, wellbeing, learning and development.
“Wee Woods” Projects
Next week, some of our “ECO Elephants” have been invited to plant trees in our local area as part of East Renfrewshire Council’s ‘Wee Woods’ project. This project is to mark COP26 happening in Glasgow and links well to our class mission statements about learning for sustainability. We are really looking forward to being part of this exciting project and making a positive, lasting impact on our local environment.
A Day in the Life of … Video
Please sit back, click on the link and relax for a couple of minutes to watch the snapshot video that the Leadership Team, with the help of some pupils and staff have produced for you. We really hope you enjoy this “little visit” inside Netherlee. We hope you enjoyed the video’s on Google Classroom.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
