Welcome to Belvedere Infant School. School gates open from 8.40am to 8.50am. Please see our flyer below for details of Open Days for Nursery and Reception admission for Sept 2022

A warm welcome to Belvedere Infant and Nursery School.  I am proud to be the Headteacher here and share with you all the incredible things going on in our school.

We are a 3 form infant school with a nursery attached and we work very closely with Belvedere Junior school.

We have 3 words that sum up what school is like for our children and work hard to ensure this happens every day.

Caring. Learning. Together.

 Please browse the website where you will find lots of helpful information about us. Feel free to contact the school directly if you have any queries.

We would like to thank you for all the support and wonderful comments, we really do appreciate them. Please would you take a moment to complete Parent View  to share that feedback as this would reflect your support. If you need any support in accessing Parent View - please do let us know.

We really do value your views and we would like to thank you so much for the support and positive feedback you have given  us throughout the year.  A high percentage of parent views and contributions on Parent View would reflect your continued support , so we do encourage you to spend a few minutes of your time to complete the short survey.This is a set of 12 questions about the school that should (after registration) only take 1-2 minutes to complete.

How useful is Parent View?
Once a school has a sufficient number of responses from parents/carers, results will be published in percentages in easy-to-understand graphs. They can be viewed by schools, parents and carers, the general public and Ofsted on the Parent View website.

As the results for each school are saved at the end of the academic year, they can provide headteachers and governors with a useful year-on-year picture of parents' views.

* School leaders can use parents' views to help their schools improve.
* Prospective parents can look at the results to find out what other parents think of a school.
* Ofsted Inspectors will consider parents views alongside other evidence to help them form an accurate picture of a school and give it a fair judgement. Parent View is the main mechanism for parents to give their views about the school to inspectors at the time of an inspection, but Ofsted will preview prior to an inspection.

If you have any questions re your child joining our school, please don't hesitate to contact us, we're only too happy to help

                          For children on the Autism Spectrum

Summer can be a time of fun and excitement, full of surprises, meetings with friends and family, eating picnics with things not normally found on our daily menu.  Great fun for most, but can be the very opposite of fun for children on the autism spectrum.  We know that autistic children thrive on routine and order so, especially at this time when our routine has been so disrupted by Covid, the prospect of all the changes and expectations around the holiday season may completely overwhelm them.  This does not mean that others cannot enjoy the holidays as they want to, but by making some simple adjustments, things can be more enjoyable for all. Please see this great resource below for strategies that may support you and your child.

 

Childline(2)untitled-3(1)

  • Are you a parent or carer of a child with additional needs?
  • Is learning at home proving to be a challenge?
  • Are your children’s additional needs making it hard for them to adapt to learning from home or to access the work set via their school at this time?
    Are you having difficulties getting your child to focus on their school work?
  • Is your child struggling academically or emotionally during the COVID-19 restrictions?

 

Bexley Council’s Early Intervention and Specialist Advice Service can provide advice, guidance and signposting for you as parents and carers, via phone or email, on how to support your child whilst learning at home and throughout this period where schools have partial closures. Please click on the pdf flyer below.

 

About the scheme

Accessing money can be difficult for women experiencing domestic abuse, particularly if they are experiencing financial abuse. We know that it can stop women from travelling to safety and can be a huge barrier to support. The Women’s Aid Rail to Refuge scheme means that survivors with a confirmed refuge space can travel for free across England, Scotland and Wales.

It was launched in the South of England in March 2020 with Great Western Rail and Southeastern after Darren O’Brien, a Southeastern Station Manager, watched a Dispatches documentary about Reigate and Banstead Women’s Aid. From April 9th the cost of tickets has been covered by the Rail Delivery Group, and extends the scheme across all of Britian’s rail networks, until the end of March 2021. 

 

 

 

Black Lives Matter

Peaceful protests, mass marches, and portrayals of violence. Petitions, political speeches, and demonstrations. The last two weeks have seen movements advocating for an end to racial inequality on a mass scale. Yet, current affairs aren’t always tangible or immediately clear, especially from a child’s perspective. Many children may have questions about the images, stories, and conversations they hear on the news and around them. This resource may help you to explain Black Lives Matter to children and young  people.

Your opinions and views matter to us. Please would you take a moment to complete our Parent View?

Online with Sango - click on the image to access the book online.

This book aims to teach children about their rights and safety online. It contains six scenarios children often face in relation to the digital environment:
1. Right to play online
2. Managing screen time
3. Exposure to inappropriate content
4. Right to use digital media to learn
5. Privacy
6. Adult role modelling of positive use of digital media
Each scenario provides your child with a question and two possible answers. Reading the book with your child creates an opportunity to talk with them about being online. You can find the correct answer for each scenario at the back of this book.
As you read the book, we encourage you to talk openly with your child about what they see and do online. We also encourage you to reassure your child that they can talk to you anytime about things which happen online and that no matter what they say, they won’t get into trouble.
This book was designed for children under 9 years old. ITU also has resources on rights and safety online for older children and for children who are ready to learn more: www.itu.int/cop

The DadPad app is an easy to use, freely downloadable resource for new dads and dads to be in the Bexley/Bromley/Greenwich area, packed with relevant information, as well as details on local support groups and service providers. Its aim is to provide new fathers with guidance on how to develop the mindset, confidence and practical skills needed to meet their babies’ physical and emotional needs.
Building a strong attachment will not only enable dads to better enjoy their new role but also contribute towards positive long term social, health and educational outcomes for their babies. Crucially, the app also
provides dads with guidance on how t o support and seek help (when needed) for their partners and themselves as they adjust to their new roles, and cope with the physical and emotional strains that this can
place on individuals and relationships.
The app covers topics such as:

Feeding, holding, changing and cleaning your baby

Surviving without sleep and coping with crying

Getting to know your baby

Home safety and first aid

Looking after yourself and supporting your partner.
The app was relaunched in Bexley, Bromley and Greenwich on 21 June 2021 to align with International Dad’s Mental Health Day.
