NEWS & EVENTS
Over the last few weeks, members of Year 6 have been campaigning for the Team Captain positions within Gaunt, Leycester, Shakespeare and DeMontfort. The children applied for the roles by delivering an initial presentation to Mrs Braley and Mr Berrigan outlining their key skills and suitability for the position. Shortlisted candidates were then tasked with creating individual campaign videos which were watched by children in their teams throughout school before voting commenced.
All of the children taking part should be hugely proud of their presentations and videos. They have shown some excellent skills and qualities in their campaigning and each and every one of them would have no doubt added value to our school in the role of Team Captain.
However, the votes have been counted and re-counted (yes- it was extremely close!) and the final results are as follows:
Team Captain: Elsie
Vice Captain: Harrison D
Team Captain: Luke
Vice Captain: Ameilia
Team Captain: Lewis
Vice Captain: Sade
Team Captain: Thomas D
Vice Captain: Eve
Congratulations to everyone!
Parents are being warned that a gruesome video has been circulating on the popular app TikTok this week. TikTok is reportedly trying to remove the graphic videos and is banning accounts that re-upload the clip. Some TikTok users have reported that the video has also been hidden inside other innocuous looking videos.
Please be aware and check that if your child uses the TikTok App that they have not been frightened by any content they might have viewed. We attach a link to help with online safety regarding TikTok and children’s usage.
Our theme for Autumn 1 is: Belonging to our school
All children and adults at Priors Field are responsible for working together to make sure that everyone feels safe and happy. We have respect for ourselves and others, always strive to be polite and well-mannered, and if we make a mistake with our behaviour we remember that we are team players and always try our best to put it right with the people involved.
We are supportive of one another in our learning, caring when things are tricky or someone feels sad, and we are inclusive at play time. We celebrate our differences and unique qualities so that everyone feels valued as an important and equal member of our school community.
Even though we are not able to hold congratulations assemblies and celebrate your child’s achievements with you we are continuing to do this in school. Over the next few weeks we will be looking for children who exemplify the vision words from this term’s theme, ‘belonging to our school’.

It is important that children take the same approach to online safety when using home learning resources as they do when in school. It is also important that parents are aware of the resources available and understand their role in monitoring and supporting their children during online home learning. The following resources provide guidance for parents and can be found on the safeguarding page of our website:

Did you know that our school is the catchment school for Baginton? Whilst we do have children in school from the village, we do wonder if other families in Baginton are aware that this would be their natural catchment school. We are trying to advertise ourselves but if you do live in Baginton we’d be grateful if you could pass the information onto other families with children.
