Important Message from Hull City Council

posted 16 Jul 2018, 07:05 by Simon Bush

 Hull City Council and Humberside Fire and Rescue Service are asking children in Hull to play safely over the long summer holiday and not be tempted by areas awaiting demolition and the many building sites which are at the forefront of the city’s regeneration.

Contractors take all reasonable steps to ensure that only authorised people are allowed onto a site when construction work is being carried out, and health and safety is embedded in the industry’s culture.  Nevertheless every year in the UK children are injured, and even die, as a result of accidents on building sites. Thankfully there have been no casualties in Hull, and we want to keep it that way. 

Cllr John Black, Portfolio Holder for Housing said, “Children tend to be drawn to building sites as exciting places to play and are unaware of the potentially life threatening dangers they pose, therefore we want to send a strong message out that “building sites bite” and are no go areas for children. 

"Across the city, the council and our partners offer a wide range of play, sporting and other recreational activities for children during the school holidays, and these can be checked out on the Council’s website 
www.hullcc.gov.uk/events and via the Council’s area teams’ Facebook pages.”

Building sites are prevalent across Hull because the Council is half way through the city’s biggest housing regeneration programme for more than 50 years, which will offer people a wider choice of quality affordable homes to rent or buy. 

"The increase in fires in such properties is also a concern for Humberside Fire and Rescue Service. Group Manager of Public Safety Matt Sutcliffe explained:

 “Derelict buildings and those under construction are inherently dangerous places for those who may become trapped inside during a fire or collapse and even for firefighters in the event of a rescue. Fire damage and water damage from previous incidents may well have made floors, roofs and stairways structurally unsafe which makes these buildings nothing short of death traps.

“Sending engines to deliberate fires anywhere in Hull is ultimately taking resources away from where they may be needed elsewhere in the city. I would urge those responsible to stay out of these derelict buildings this summer for their own safety. It is only a matter of time before we are going to be faced with a serious injury or worse.”

It's hot, hot, hot! BE SAFE EVERYONE!

Its going to be hot this week folks! If you would like your child to be protected, they are able to bring in suntan lotion in a labelled bottle. There are certain rules we need to follow however:
1.Children must put on their own sun cream/lotion/spray for their own personal use 
2.Children are not allowed to share sun cream/lotion/spray
3.It is advised that members of staff do not administer sun cream/lotion/spray for child protection reasons. Our youngest pupils can have sun cream/lotion/spray applied provided the school has written consent from the parents.
4. Sun cream/lotion/sprays must be SPF15 or above.
5. Parents have the right to apply sun cream/lotion/spray during the school day if they feel it is necessary

You can find the link BELOW to our school policy.

 



Sports Day 2018 Update!

Sports Day 2018 Update!

This year we are continuing the exciting and family-orientated approach to our Sports Day on Friday 29th June 2018 with a few tweaks based on last year’s Sports Day.


Throughout the morning all the children will take part in a range of sporting activities and events in our three zones: The Sports Arena, The Athletics Track and The Fun Zone! The children will be placed in teams representing different countries from the World Cup.  If your child has brothers and sisters in school then they will all be in the same team.  The children will be told which country they will be competing for and will be given a colour.  If possible we would love the children to wear something of that colour (t-shirt,shorts or socks) on the day.   Pupils  will move around the zones competing together and scoring points for their country.


The day will begin with an Opening Ceremony at 10.00am (for safety reasons please arrive no earlier than 9:50am).   Lunchtime will begin at approximately 12.40pm for all children. We understand that this is a long morning for the children, so they will be provided with a piece of fruit to eat before the day begins.


Once all the events are finished and the winning team is announced we will register each class. We would then like to invite you to stay for a family picnic on the field! Once you and your family have finished your food you are welcome to go home. There will also be a range of refreshments available for purchase throughout the day, these include hotdogs at lunchtime, tea, coffee and ice-pops.  For safety reasons these refreshments may only be consumed by school pupils at lunchtime and after school, not during the sporting activities.

Please also note that if the weather is hot (fingers crossed!) the children will need to have a hat and a cold drink of water.  Could you please apply sun cream before they come to school.  If the weather is wet, we will let you know as soon as possible of an alternative date. 


We hope everyone has an amazing day! If you have any questions about Sports Day please see Mrs Pullen (Y2) or Mr Spink (Y4).  Thank you for your support. Please can we have the slip below back into school by Friday 22nd June. Thanks.

 

Well done girls!
