Welcome to our February newsletter where we share relevant information with you about what has been happening here at Bracken Leas and events planned in future weeks.

Children’s Mental Health Week – 1-7th February

Children both within school and learning at home will be taking part in a number of teacher led activities next week. 

In addition, we are asking everyone to raid their wardrobe, dig out their brightest colours and ‘Dress to Express’ on Friday 5th February.

We will be sharing posts of the children within school and ask families at home to take part too.

Safer Internet Day – 9th February

Safer Internet Day is always an important date in the annual school calendar. Children will be taking part in teacher led activities at home and within school. The theme this year is ‘An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world’. This is incredibly relevant to families across the world at this time.
