Anti-Bullying Week

anti_bullying_weekWe will be celebrating odd socks day on Thursday 16th November.   Children can come to school in odd socks to emphasis that we are all different but equal.   Children will also be learning about what bullying means,the importance of being kind to each other and what to do if they think they are being bullied.   Parents and carers can find out more about anti-bullying week here.

Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and takes place this year from 13th – 17th November and is supported by SafeToNet.


A message from your new Headteacher

I am delighted to be your new Headteacher at Speedwell Infant School and look forward to getting to know you and your children over the coming weeks.   It was lovely to meet some of you at my ‘Meet the new Headteacher coffee morning/afternoons’.   If you didn’t get chance to pop in, but would like to see me, I am at the school entrance most mornings and look forward to saying hello.
