Free@Last

This half term some children have had the chance to work with the Free@Last team in their new building. Children have experienced using the Climbing Wall and Recording Studio. Sessions will continue to run until the new year.

During the time spent at Free@Last we have been able to see what talented musicians and climbers we have at the academy. Well done to you all.

St Clement’s PCSO’s

Here at St. Clement’s Academy we are lucky to work closely with Louise and Robbie our Police Community Support Officers.

Louise and Robbie come into school regularly and teach the pupils a range of lessons from what equipment Police Officers use to dealing with knife crime. Children are also lucky to get ‘Story Time’ with PCSO Robbie, which is enjoyed by them all. The Officers also help in Policing the streets in the community and manage parking outside of the academy. We would like to say “Thank You Louise and Robbie!”

PCSO visit to Year 3

Year 3 had a visit like Year 2 from our local PCSO’s – Police and Community Support Officers Louise and Robbie. They are based at Nechells police station and their main role is to keep the area we live and go to school in safe. They are working in partnership with our community to educate all and are really working hard to make sure that we all feel safe in our local area.

Louise and Robbie reminded us that there are good strangers and bad strangers and that they are good strangers. It is ok to ask a good stranger for help when lost but to always ask them to show their identification badge to check.

Year 3 had homework set by the PCSO’s to learn their full address so if ever lost they would be able to be returned home quick and also that 999 is the number to call if we need the help of the police.

Police Visit.

This week, Year 2 had a very special visit from two important people who help us in our community. They are Police Community Support Officers and their job is to look after us when we are out and about.

We heard all about their jobs and the special equipment they need like torches, Kevlar vests, radios and even special shoes. We were lucky enough to try on some of their uniform too!

Year 2 asked some interesting questions to find out more about what they do. Now we know that there are numbers on the tops of police cars so that helicopters know which officers are in which cars. We also know that if we are in trouble and need help, we can ring 999 and tell them our name and address. Do you know your home address in case of emergency?

CHILDREN CHAMPIONS

The children have voted and this years Pupil Council and UNICEF representatives have been chosen.

Together they will be called ‘Children Champions’ and will carry out a range of tasks. Firstly, they will be looking at changing the academy’s house point system and designing and calculating cost for a KS2 outdoor classroom. Whilst carrying out these jobs the Champions will also be collecting pupil voice and making sure the views of the students of St. Clements Academy are heard.

Article 12: Every child has the right to express their
views, feelings and wishes in all matters
affecting them, and to have their views
considered and taken seriously. This right
applies at all times, for example during
immigration proceedings, housing decisions
or the child’s day-to-day home life.

Well done to you all.
