    Proposed Zebra Crossing Davenwood
    Good morning, Following requests from the local community and Ward Councillors, Swindon Borough Council are looking to provide a new controlled crossing at one location on Meadowcroft. A data analysis exercise, involving the collection of data on both vehicular and pedestrian movements between Davenwood and Derwent Drive, has shown that the provision of a controlled crossing facility is justified on Meadowcroft. Further analysis has indicated that a Zebra crossing would be the most appropriate type of crossing. In conjunction with the local Ward Councillors, Officers have visited site and identified two locations where the introduction of a crossing would be feasible and the Council is now inviting feedback on these from local stakeholders. The two locations in question are to the west of Davenwood, and east of Lansbury Drive. A plan showing these locations in more detail, along with a short survey to be completed on these options, can be found on the ‘Consultations, engagement and surveys’ section of the Council’s website. The survey will remain open until the 24th December 2021, after which results of the consultation will be discussed with Ward Councillors and a decision taken on which site the crossing would be best located. Please see the link below if you would like to take part in this survey. https://www.swindon.gov.uk/info/20019/consultations_engagement_and_surveys/1230/meadowcroft_zebra_crossing_consultation Thank you

    Water and Fruit
    Good morning, Thank you to those who responded to our survey about fruit and homework. We are still looking at homework and will get back to you about this later. 80% of parents were in favour of children having fresh fruit or vegetables only at breaktimes, and several other parents were happy if we included dried fruit such as raisins or dried apricots. From after half-term, this will be the policy implemented in school. Children who bring anything other than fresh fruit or vegetables, or dried fruit in its original form, down at playtime will be asked to go and put it back in their lunchboxes for lunchtime. The Government provide fruit and for Early Years and Key Stage 1 children already and this will continue to happen. Additionally, over time, more and more children have been bringing squash into school in their water bottles. We have always had a water only policy in school although over the last two years, things have understandably slipped a little. The reason we have this policy is two fold: first of all, as a school, we are supposed to encourage healthy choices and water is considered to be the healthiest option. Chilled water is freely available in school for all children. Secondly, we have had several incidents of bottles being knocked over in the past. When it is just water that is spilt, it isn't a problem to clear things up and dry off work. When it is squash or flavoured/fizzy water, it is sticky and messy and children's work has been ruined. In future, children who have squash in their bottles will be asked to put them in their bags for lunchtime. Children may absolutely have squash or juice cartons with their lunch but we will only be allowing them to have water whilst they are in the classrooms. If children are asked to put bottles in their bags, then they will still be able to access the water fountains throughout the day as we have paper cups available for this purpose. Many thanks for responding to the questionnaire and for your support, Miss Burke and Mrs Cole
