Torridon Primary Sponsored Bounce

Friends of Torridon PTA is delighted to host the much-loved summer term Sponsored Bounce on Monday 20th May, during school hours.

How does it work?
Each child gets a turn to bounce as many times as they can in 1 minute. We ask parents, carers, friends, family and neighbours to sponsor the child for each bounce they do.

Where does the money go?
All money raised will go towards planting hedges along the school fence to improve air quality in the playground.

How can I help?
The Bounce will only happen with support on the day from parents. Please email friendsoftorridonpta@gmail.com to help for 2 hours.

National School Breakfast Programme

Our school has joined the government’s National School Breakfst Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.

As a NSBP School we are pleased to offer free playground bagels, available to all, and enjoy the benefits that brings, with children settled and ready to learn at the start of the school day.

Y5 Trip

Our Y5 are thoroughly enjoying their time away from school!  Keen to get stuck in with their next adventure, they are reaching new heights with Indoor Rock Climbing!  You can follow their adventures on Twitter.

Torridon’s Pond Looking as Good as Newt!

We would like to say a huge thank you to members of GoodGym, a local charitable running group (www.goodgym.org), for volunteering their time last Saturday 23 March to assist our gardener Shaha with the mammoth task of cleaning our school pond. We are extremely grateful for their support!

Becoming a Childminder Pre-Registration Briefing

If you wish to become a childminder in Lewisham you need to attend this pre-registration briefing.  This is the first step to becoming a Registered Childminder with Ofsted.  This briefing outlines what is involved in embarking on the new career as a self-employed childminder including what training is required. 

This session will provide you with an opportunity to: 
– Find out about what is involved in becoming a registered childminder, including what is required by OfSTED (which is the government department responsible for registering and inspecting childminders) 
– Hear about the process for applying to register as a childminder on the Early Years Register and begin to network with other prospective childminders. 
– Find out about the courses available to you through STEEP to support you in becoming a Registered Childminder. 

For those who have attended this Briefing, Lewisham offer a Basic Skills assessment, so anyone considering becoming a Childminder can ensure they have the literacy skills in English needed to follow a Level 3 course. The Introduction to Childminding Practice is a Level 3 course and aims to ensure course participants have the best chance to excel.
