Just saw the new Matilda film. It’s basically perfect. There are no words to describe Matthew Warchus, or Emma Thompson. Lashana Lynch sensational. showing again why he’s one of the very, very best. ‘Matilda’ might make for a good Junior Musical one day…

It's been one year since we set up Footnotes, the Sixth Form and Year 11 book club that investigates history's greatest novels and delves into the worlds they create. In that time we've run through eight key novels and dozens of adaptations, spoofs and spin-offs from all media. https://t.co/qiVtAey6Bh

E-Safety Advice & Support

Today, we live in a society where it is very difficult to avoid going online. Being a conscientious digital citizen who contributes positively to the digital world around them and who critically evaluates their place within this digital world, is all part of the new Curriculum for Wales. As part of the Digital Competence Framework pupils will be taught to be prepared for and ready to encounter the positive and negative aspects of being a digital citizen and will develop strategies and tools to aid them as they become independent consumers and producers.

 

Parents/carers please report any concerns you may have linked to online safety to the school, via school@stanwell.org

 

What to do if a child has come to you and needs help, follow the advice here on Childnet’s Get Help page.

 

The Report Harmful Content website can help you with issues such as cyberbullying, impersonation and threats.
