    Firework Safety
    Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is reminding everyone about the dangers of fireworks to help keep people safe this bonfire and fireworks season. With many organised events cancelled, emergency services are preparing for a busier night than usual as people celebrate in their own gardens. We are asking everyone to show RESPECT this Bonfire Night. Respect the Firework Whilst most people enjoy fireworks responsibly, in the wrong hands they can cause real misery. Remember that fireworks are explosives, and as such should be treated with respect and only used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and the Firework Code. • Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable, and ensure it finishes before 11pm • Only buy fireworks which carry the CE mark, keep them in a closed box and use them one at a time • Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary • Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back • Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks • Never return to a firework once it has been lit • Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them • Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators • Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire • Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving. Respect the Emergency Services We are currently amidst a global pandemic and we are asking people not to take risks, putting additional pressures on our emergency services. Injuries can be prevented by following the Firework code. If you suffer a burn, ensure you: • Cool the burn under cold running water for at least ten minutes. • After the burn has been cooled, cover it with cling film or a clean plastic bag. • Call 999 if necessary. Always seek medical advice for a baby or child that has been burned. Respect your neighbours Fireworks can frighten people and animals. The elderly and children are frequently scared and intimidated by firework noise. After all, fireworks are explosives. Tell your neighbours if you’re a planning on letting off fireworks and avoid purchasing really noisy ones. Please be considerate when having a firework party and make sure the noise is over by 11pm. You must not set off fireworks between 11pm and 7am, except for: • Bonfire Night, when the cut off is midnight • New Year’s Eve, Diwali and Chinese New Year, when the cut off is 1am Show some respect this Bonfire Night. Thank you for your assistance, we appreciate your help in encouraging everyone to show Respect and stay safe this Halloween and Bonfire season.

    Collection Times - Social Distancing
    Happy Friday.... We are still having difficulties with collection times. Social distancing is vital if we are to do the best we can to protect each other. We have lots of parents who are arriving much earlier than they should to collect their children, which means that we have far more people than need to be there on the school playground. Smaller children are spending that time, quite naturally, running around together and adults are standing together in groups chatting - again very normal, but potentially risky for all of us when we are still in in the middle of a global pandemic and cases are clearly on the rise again. The reason we have staggered start and end times is to try and spread out the number of people in the school grounds at any one time. When people arrive early, this isn't working and the playground is as busy as it is during non-Covid times. We are asking people to share this responsibility and wait to come into school until their collection time so that collecting the children can be socially distanced and as quick as possible. It is also really important that only one adult comes onto the school grounds at collection times and small children stay with their adult. Please help us to keep each other and all of the children safe. Collection Times: 3pm - Parents who only have children in Reception 3:10pm - Parents who have children in Year 1 and 2 with younger siblings in Reception only 3:20pm - Parents who have children in Year 3 and 4 with younger siblings in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 only 3:30pm - Parents who have children in Year 5 and 6 with younger siblings in Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 or Year 4 only

    Green Day - Friday 25th September
    Every year, at around this time, St. Catherine's gets involved in the MacMillan coffee morning to raise money to help those living with cancer. Many people in our school community have been affected by cancer and this is a chance for us to show our support. Unfortunately, we aren't able to host a coffee morning this year; instead, we are are going to have a green day. On Friday 25th September, we are inviting everyone in our school community to come to school wearing something green - a green jumper, green hair, green shoes etc. (no school uniform is necessary) - and we are asking for a donation of £1 from each person who wears green; the children can hand this in in their classrooms. Mr Forde and I will also have collection boxes whilst we are on the gates. All of the money raised will go to MacMillan to help them to support those living with cancer right now. Many thanks for your support.
