Netting a good result.

On Tuesday the Thorn Grove Netball team played in the Stockport Legacy Games Netball final at Bramhall High School.

The competition, a gathering of the top teams from across Stockport, saw the local heat winners battling it out to see who would represent the borough at the Greater Manchester Games.

Our year five and six team, had done brilliantly to reach the finals and, despite their lack of experience, approached the tournament with determination and a huge amount of skill.

They performed magnificently in the sweltering conditions and managed to finish fifth out of the ten finalists.

It was a superb performance from players who had only just begun to develop their Netball skills.

As part of the opening ceremony the children were able to meet Olympic, commonwealth and world 4x400m medalist Kelly Massey, who opened the games with an inspiring speech.





On-line Safety

Dear parents and carers,

As you will be aware, on-line safety is consistently in the news and we (as parents and educators) have to ensure that we fully understand the current trends in our social world. Each day new systems for communication and sharing pictures as well as media for streaming conversion and images appear – we believe that parents should be fully aware of what is available for chidren to use and problems which some have encountered using these.

In the on-line section of this website 2 links have been posted for you to look at. One is an article all about live streaming focusing on the trend of using sites such as musical-ly and live-ly. This article gives practical advice about how to ensure that your children are safe and what to do if you believe that they are not.

The second is an information page from the NSPCC which details the main social media outlets and how they are supposed to be used. It also goes into detail about age restrictions and how you can support your children to use these sites safely and responsibly.

Children are receiving lessons in on-line safety at school but it is vital that this work continues at home.

If you have any questions about what you discover, please ask your child’s class teacher.
