#AntiBullyingWeek - All Different, All Equal
This week across the country it has been An-ti-Bullying Week. During the week, we have raised awareness of the bullying of children and implementing ways of pre- venting and responding to it. All children at Eastbury stood united against bullying by wearing their anti-bullying wristbands and showing how they could be kind and respectful to each other.
Stand Up To Bullying!
Our Anti-bullying Ambassadors were rewarded with a trip to the Alexandra Palace for an Anti Bullying event. This involved participating in many different workshops throughout the day, including CBBC, rapping and poem creating with Bars and Melody, Dance, celebrating differences and guest speakers. The action packed day was full of fun, inspiration,andlearning opportunities for our Ambassadors. Not only did they get the opportunity to meet famous people and attend workshops but they also gained lots of great ideas as to how they can raise awareness within Eastbury to start making a difference.

Free School Meal Check
Holiday Absences During School Term
Please do not book holidays during the school term as this will affect your child’s progress. The school will not approve any holiday absences and you may receive a fine.
Appointments During The School Day
We have noticed that there has been an increase in the number of children leaving before the end of
the school day to attend medical or dental appointments; this is having an adverse impact on their learning. While we accept it is not possible to schedule all appointments outside school hours, we would be grateful if parents could do everything possible to request appointments at those times. If this is not possible, please let the office know in advance - at the latest, before school on the day of the appointment. We will then provide you with a letter that the doctor/dentist can sign or stamp to confirm that you attended an appointment at that time. If you do not notify us in advance, then your child may be involved in a learning activity that they cannot be released from.
Thank you for working with us in ensuring that children receive the maximum possible learning time.
