This is the first year that this event has been held and what a success it was!

The pupils had the opportunity to experience what life was like for children growing up in the 80s and 90s - they played board games such as Twister, Battleships, Hungry Hippos, Screwball Scramble and Operation, to name but a few; played playground games such as bouncing on space hoppers and hopping about in hopscotch; they watched old films and children's programmes; made their own movie animations inspired by Trapdoor; made hand-held puppets and puppet shows inspired by Button Moon; filmed their own music videos; took part in an 80s Jane Fonda workout; danced to 80s and 90s music and much more!

We would like to thank all parents and pupils for supporting the event. Throughout the entire 24 hours all pupils were an absolute credit to us and Poltair School.

When we have received all sponsor forms and money we will inform you of the amount raised as deadline for collection is today!

Policy Review

Dear Parents and Carers

As you may be aware, the statutory guidance from the Department for Education around Relationships and Sex Education has changed. Here at Poltair School, we have worked hard to think about how to teach this to our students, making sure that our lessons are engaging and designed to suit the needs of all of our students in an age appropriate manner. Students will have a lesson called Personal Development once a fortnight, in which this and other topics will be covered. This was formerly known as Morals and Ethics.

We would like to get feedback from our community in order to finalise our policy on the delivery of this important curriculum area. Our draft policy is available on our website for your consideration, and we welcome any questions, comments or feedback via email to Clare Price ([email protected]). When we are able to open up the site to parents and carers, we will hold a review and consultation meeting at school to consider our policy and delivery further. Please send any communications by 10th July 2020 at the latest.

Contact during exceptional circumstances

It is important that all children, families and professionals are able to contact key staff to share information in respect of safeguarding and concerns.

Following the wider opening of all CELT schools, there is now a member of the safeguarding team on duty in school every day. Please contact the school directly and ask for the DSL if you have any concerns you wish to discuss.

The dedicated CELT e mail address is still in operation and can be used if, for any reason, you are unable to contact the school;

[email protected]

This will be monitored during office hours only, Monday to Friday.

However, you should contact the Police or Social Care if you feel that a child is at risk of immediate serious harm.

The Poltair Art Department have started a Poltair Pinterest page.

Students are emailing work they have completed at home to their teachers, the work is then showcased on the page.

Some fantastic work on there already:
