Lifelong Learners

Welcome

BOLT (Mrs Welbourn FS2)

Welcome to the Bolt Class!

Welcome to Bolt Class. It's going to be a very exciting year, with lots of fun learning activities.

I'm Mrs Welbourn and I'm new to Longmoor Primary. I've been a teacher for 11 years now, but worked with children since I was 18 in various roles, so I do love this job!  In my spare time, I enjoy family time, going to watch Nottingham Forest, see live music, exercising and keeping fit and I love walking my dog Sooty.

Mrs Tuck is an experienced TA, who has been in reception for 6 years now. She loves spending time with her family too, watching Nottingham Forest and making wonderful things through her crocheting hobby.

We look forward to sharing lots of good times together and making good school memories.

 

Our class is named after Usain Bolt, who is a famous sprinter from Jamaica. He is famous for holding the record in the 100, 200 and 100 metre relay race. Well done Usain!

WHISPER - Anonymous Reporting Tool

 

Sometimes it is really hard to tell an adult if you feel like you are being bullied. That is why we have subscribed to WHISPER. It is an anonymous reporting tool which allows you or your child to report any incidents of bullying and cyber bullying in confidence.

 

Click on the web link below to fill in a report. It will then be emailed to Miss Hughes (Online Safety Coordinator). Messages are checked as often as possible. In order to resolve issues effectively and promptly, please include your name. This will be kept in the strictest of confidence.

 

If you have any concerns or worries about your child regarding online safety and would like further advice, please contact Miss Hughes or Mr Lyons, the school's online safety co-ordinators or speak to Mrs Dainty, Headteacher.
