Announcements

Ed Carlyle 2My name is Ed Carlyle and I am delighted to be the Executive Headteacher of Nassington School. I warmly welcome you to our school website, which I hope will give you just a flavour of some of the amazing things we do at this wonderful school.

Nassington School is dedicated to providing children with the best available education in a safe and fun environment. We also teach the children social and wellbeing skills which set them up for the wider world as they move on from us to higher education.

Our mission statement is ‘The Nassington Way’

This applies to everything we do, from the classroom to the playground, from academic accomplishments to the peer to peer interaction that build up the children’s social engagement.  Nassington School is dedicated to providing children with the best available education in a safe and fun environment.

We also teach the children social and wellbeing skills which set them up for the wider world as they move on from us to higher education. Every child has the potential to be outstanding and we believe it is our job to nurture this potential and watch it grow in every activity that takes place in the school and during extra-curricular opportunities. We encourage imagination, creativity and practical achievements as much as the core assessment criteria.

Our aim is that every child who leaves our school will be more confident, social and ready to take the next step towards the rest of their lives.

Our values are:

  • Teamwork
  • Inclusivity and Kindness
  • Courage
  • Independence
  • Resilience
  • Creativity

As we develop our vision, we will ensure that these values are at the core of all we do! You can find 'The Nassington Way' on our policy page.

Mr Ed Carlyle
Executive Headteacher

Anti-Bullying Week: 14th to 18th November 2022

On Monday 14th November, we will be launching Anti-Bullying Week at Nassington Primary with our Odd Socks Day. All the children need to do is wear odd socks! It’s a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique in Anti-Bullying Week!

There is no pressure to wear the latest fashion or to buy expensive costumes. All the children have to do to take part is wear odd socks to school, it couldn’t be simpler! Odd Socks Day takes place on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week each year to help raise awareness of bullying.

In 2021 over 5 million children, 1000s of parents, 100s of workplaces and lots of celebrities and influencers got involved. Ant and Dec, Emma Willis, Brian May, Craig David, Sir Mo Farah and Anne Marie donning their odd socks! This is an ideal opportunity on highlighting the important issue of bullying in a fun way.

REMEMBRANCE AT NASSINGTON

The school has been taking time to commemorate Remembrance Day - here is an example of the work the pupils have been doing:

ONLINE SAFETY

Have you heard about an online character called Huggy Wuggy from a game and TV show called Poppy Playtime? The animated character goes by the friendly name of Huggy Wuggy, leading parents and children to believe the videos are aimed at youngsters and contain no inappropriate material. However, the blue bear-like creature with sharp teeth chases and threatens other characters in nightmarish scenarios, leaving many children upset and frightened.  The character is from the cast of Poppy Playtime which is described as a ‘survival horror, logical puzzle video game’. Huggy Wuggy is the villain within the game.

The game involves staying alive in a horror puzzle adventure. This game is not suitable for primary aged children as it contains some frightening and disturbing content that is very upsetting to view. The Poppy Playtime game is available on the App Store and Android store and has a PEGI 12 rating, meaning it is only suitable for people over 12. To put this into context Minecraft has a rating of PEGI 10 meaning it is only suitable for people over 10.  Toys representing the characters from Poppy Playtime are sold on Amazon. The Huggy Wuggy character has also been recreated on Roblox, a virtual community where users can create their own 3D worlds with their own game players.

Please see our newsletter section for a range of factsheets and advice regarding online safety for your children.

Not sure what to read next with your child? Check out the Recommended Reads for each class! Lots of ideas to excite and inspire young readers and to get a ticket for the Reading Raffle!

You can find the information under 'Our Classes' and the lists are in each class section. Enjoy!!

Hello Yellow Day!

Nassington Primary is taking part in #HelloYellow on the week beginning 10th October 2022, as part of the World Mental Health Day activities.

As a school and our wider community, we need to ensure our pupils know that their Mental Health matters and they deserve to feel supported and confident to talk openly about their feelings. We will be joining thousands of other schools by wearing yellow to show young people that how they feel matters, as well as raising money for YoungMinds.

To take part, children can wear yellow to school on  Friday 14th October, and we ask parents and carers to consider, if possible, making a donation to YoungMinds: www.youngminds.org.uk We will also be including some fun activities throughout the week that we hope the children enjoy, starting with an assembly this week created by Youngminds specifically for Primary Schools. You may like to ask them what they have learnt! We’re confident that taking part in #HelloYellow will show our young people that their mental health is important, and to ask for help when they need support.

Together, we can create a brighter future for children and young people.
