Black Lives Matter

Following the absolutely horrific incident in America, I would like to express my commitment to making our views heard and stand together to condemn the brutal killing of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis.
The death of George Floyd has prompted reflection about racism in Britain today, and the extent to which it shapes our values, politics and economic life. Our community needs and deserves to feel safe in the belief that we condemn all acts of racism and violence and moreover that we believe racism is an abhorrence and that we have a duty to address systemic racism in our society.
We have seen protests in our own city of Bristol which have included the pulling down of the statue the slave trader Edward Colston. This incident has prompted many more question about why this statue was still on display in the centre of Bristol in 2020. We see that more needs to be done to address the legacy of slavery and racist inequalities that still exist to today.
At Cabot Primary School we continue to follow our school values of Partnership, Inclusion and Excellence and we are united in our commitment to tackle and challenge racism, address inequality and call out discrimination.

School Crossing Patrol

Dear Parents:

The School Crossing Patrols will be returning to our streets from Monday 8th June, however, it will be a phased return as we intend to support each SCP to ensure social distancing can be achieved.

You may have noticed that white box outlines have been painted at the School Crossing Patrols locations. Please do not enter these boxes while the SCP is stood in it. Once the SCP has moved into the centre of the road they will ask you to cross. Only then you should cross and please cross in front of them directly to the other pavement.

The Lollypop Person will, where necessary, manage the site in reverse. So it may be that when you arrive in the morning they will be on the other side of the road. Please make sure that your child is near to you and they are not likely to step into the road.

Please also help the ‘Lollypop Person’ stay well and explain to your child that they need to stay out of the white box so that everyone is protected.

Hopefully, this will be a short term change and by all working together we can begin to get back to some sort of normal again.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Road Safety Team at road.safety@bristol.gov.uk for any additional advice and guidance.

Regards
Mark
