School Reports

Your child’s end of year report 2021 will be given out today together with details of your child’s class teacher for next year. 

Reports need to be handed to a Parent/Carer, sibling reports will be given when the youngest sibling is collected.

Any reports not collected by Thursday will be sent in the post on Friday.

On the report you will notice that we have commented on your child’s online learning engagement during the national lockdowns due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  As you are aware for the majority of our children the online learning was an important part of the curriculum offer.

If you have any questions, then please do let your child’s teacher know.  We hope you enjoy reading your child’s report and will take the opportunity to discuss it with them.

We hope you have a safe and enjoyable summer.

 

Leona Baffour – Deputy Headteacher.

Online Safety

During this time, children will be spending more time online, using platforms like YouTube. Please take a look at the online safety tips from the NCPCC here: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/talking-child-online-safety/

Remember, you can put parental controls on your children’s devices, so that they can’t access inappropriate content. Make sure they know to talk to you if anything they don’t like happens. The internet is a wonderful place, as long as you stay safe!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

Deptford Park Statement on Black Lives Matter

Lewisham Leaders stand together to condemn the unlawful murder of an innocent black man, George Floyd in Minneapolis and sadly those other unlawful deaths in America that have followed after, due to racism.

We stand united in our commitment to tackle and challenge racism, address inequality and call out discrimination.

As educators of a school population which is made up of a significant numbers of children and families from Black and ethnic minority communities, we cannot remain silent.

The murder of George Floyd must prompt careful reflection about racism in Britain today, and the extent to which it shapes our values, politics and economic life.  We all have a duty to address systemic racism in our society and uphold this in our united condemnation of the unlawful murder of an innocent black man, George Floyd.

Deptford Park Primary School is a warm and welcoming place for everyone.  Our core values include kindness, integrity and respect – these are at the heart of all we do.  We are always here for you, regardless of your race, sexuality, gender, religion or anything else which makes you, you.

Today and every other day, all of us at Deptford Park stand as one in the belief that racism is an abhorrence that we reject.  Our community needs and deserves to feel safe in the belief that we condemn all acts of racism and violence.
