Primary School feedback

As a school we were extremely happy and thankful for the fantastic sessions Jess provided. Jess showed that she was up for a challenge and was willing to provide sessions for all our different cohorts of children and she did not disappoint. As PE coordinator I have found it increasingly difficult to find sessions which are suitable and accessible for our learners who have more severe learning difficulties which has meant they are often left missing out, however Jess came in and changed that. The sessions created a safe space for our children to explore physical activities in their own time and in a way which was comfortable for them, without any pressure of them being forced to engage in a particular way. The activities supported our pupils sensory and regulating needs and all learners were engaged throughout every session which is not something that is easy to do. When working with different groups of children Jess was able to clearly differentiate the sessions to meet their individual needs ensuring all pupils could engage. Jess was also able to communicate with our learners by using some sign language which was fantastic to see our learners communicating with someone in the wider community. Feedback from class teachers was very positive and they have all expressed they would love to have more sessions in the future.

Safer Internet

Safer Internet Day

We now live in world where the internet is an integral part of our modern world and a great tool for learning. However, as a place where the safeguarding of our pupils is paramount, we realise that the internet is fraught with risks, whether from trolls, cyberbullying, protecting personal details, to ensuring pupils are avoiding inappropriate materials. Therefore, here at ETP we are advocates of teaching in internet safety. We taught pupils with lessons on cyber bullying and keeping personnel data safe. Thus ensuring that our pupils are equipped to stay safe online in and out of school.

Mental Health

The Russell Martin Foundation is actively participating in Mental Health Week, an empowering initiative aimed at promoting mental well-being and creating a supportive environment for everyone. We believe that mental health is just as important as physical health, and this week is dedicated to raising awareness, reducing stigma, and providing resources to help nurture positive mental well-being. Why Mental Health Matters In today's fast-paced world, it's crucial to recognise that mental health affects every aspect of our lives. It influences how we think, feel, and act, and it greatly impacts our relationships, productivity, and overall quality of life. Taking care of our mental health is essential for personal growth, resilience, and achieving our full potential. How You Can Get Involved Spread the Word. Use your voice to raise awareness about mental health! Share our posts, stories, and resources on social media platforms to help break down barriers and start meaningful conversations. Listen and Support. Take the time to actively listen to others without judgment. Show compassion, empathy, and understanding to those who may be struggling with their mental health. A simple act of kindness can make a world of difference. Take Care of Yourself. Self-care is not selfish, it's a necessity. Prioritise your mental well-being by engaging in activities that bring you joy, practicing mindfulness, maintaining a healthy work-life balance, and seeking support when needed. Join us for Mental Health Week as we embark on a journey to raise awareness. Remember, your mental health matters.
