We have created a FREE guide for your school to share to its community about Yubo (formerly Yellow), the social media application which has been commonly labelled as ‘Tinder for Teens’.

Our guide informs parents about the dangers associated with the platform and how they can reduce the associated risks, including, but not limited to; Bullying, Low Self Esteem, ‘Going Live’ and Location Features.

All children should be taking a book home each day. When myself or Mrs Wright listen to the children read, we will comment (in the reading diary) on what they have done well and given them a target to work on in future reading.  ​​It would be great if you could listen to your child read about 3 times per week and write a comment in their diary to show how they are getting on with their target from previous reading sessions. Your support in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
