Dear Parents and Carers,
The time has flown by since Christmas and although it has been a short term, Charlton Park Academy has been full of exciting events and activities.

I have particularly enjoyed Number Day recently with a numbers' disco organised in the multi-hall for students and staff to enjoy. Our students are taking part in Wellbeing Week 10-14 February with lots of activities to promote physical and mental wellbeing, including a visit from Zoo lab. I hope that some of the information to support wellbeing will be shared between school and home. A letter recently went home outlining our commitment to the Leading Parent Partnership Award, many thanks to those who responded. The feedback that we get from parents and carers helps us to improve in areas such as home school communication, supporting learning for students and their parents. Sara Johnson, our school counsellor has sent out letters to support our parents/carers with workshops. One of our key priorities we are currently focussing on is reading, a number of students are taking part in a reading trial using an online programme called Reading Wise, this is to help them improve their reading skills.
In my role as Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) I am regularly supplying information to go on our website to support students and their families, you will find helpful factsheets to promote e-safety. Please visit the online safety area of the website here: www.charltonparkacademy.com/online-safety
I have delivered online safety training and will do so again next term, so a letter will follow.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
Senior Vice Principal
