Congratulations to our wonderful Year 6 pupils for all the effort they showed during SATs week. Some of you have been with us since Reception, others of you have joined since then. All of you have made good progress in your time at Cabot. You deserved your after SATs treats.
We have celebrated another wonderful Book Week at Cabot. We are so lucky to have such a positive reading culture at our school.

Your Holiday Hub returns to support families this Christmas
Low-income families in Bristol will receive extra support this Christmas with the return of Your Holiday Hubs (YHH) across the city.
Children and young people who are eligible for free school meals will be able to access almost 200 school holiday clubs for free over the school winter break.
Families will be able to enjoy activities including cooking, arts, crafts, sports and lots of outdoor play during the four-hour sessions provided by 35 Bristol organisations.
Experiences include creating a piece of winter music, Sail with Santa around the harbour, Hansel and Gretel outdoor theatre and learn how to make snow.
The clubs provide opportunities for children and young people to make new friends, learn and develop new skills and build their confidence.
Those taking part will also be provided with a hot, nutritious meal.
Amongst the organisations running school winter holiday clubs this year are the SS Great Britain Trust, Imayla Community Interest Company, Bristol City Robins and St Werburghs City Farm.
Councillor Asher Craig, Cabinet Lead for Children’s Services, Education and Equalities said: “We know this can be particularly hard time for families. We’ve worked with partners across the city to make this time a little easier for those in need and ensure we have an offer in place over the winter school holiday period, using the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme. I am grateful to everyone who is contributing to this years’ clubs and the support they are giving families this Christmas.”
Families who would like to access a YHH should contact the organisations directly.
A number of children in school have spoken to us about the TV programme Squid Games. This TV programme includes lots of violent content and is not appropriate for primary aged children. It has a certificate rating of 15 and should only be watched by people of this age or older. However, some footage from the programme has been uploaded on to apps and social media platforms and younger children may have seen it there. Please talk to your child and monitor their online use. Below is some advice about keeping children safe online.
