POINTS What a scorcher this week has been and the lovely weather is set to stay with us I believe.
OF IN- You wait as soon as 20th July the weather will change...I do hope not!
Thank you to all of you who came and supported the PTA and school on Friday for the 'Get
Join us for: Together'. It was wonderful to see so many people here to take part in the talent show, especially.
The Road Thank you too for the 'BJS Bake off' entries. There were some amazing creations from both parents
Less Trav- and children alike. Next year I think we will have to have a staff category.
Friday 6th Thank you to all of those who came and enjoyed the annual Sports Day with us. Again the sun shone
down and made it a great sporting event. There has been so many people who have come forward
July praising us for making it such an inclusive event where everyone can take part. I know a few of you
have made comments that you wanted to see a 'traditional' Sports Day with races and there is a place
for that as children are regularly selected for Athletic events as part of Rugby Schools Sports. A special
Thank You to Mr Evans and Mr Cantillon for organising our Sports extravaganza as it involved
everyone and encouraged team building skills and a wonderful sense of community.
Year 6 have been involved in careers week where we have been inviting parents in to school to talk
about their professions. It has really engaged the children and along with our mission statement, they
are being ambitious for their futures by thinking of all the different careers that they may enter into
later on in life.
What’s to look forward to I hear you ask? Coming up is our 'Life Less Travelled' Art exhibition here
in school on Friday 6th July from 6-8.30p.m. Please come and join us and celebrate the art work
that children have been creating inspired by artists who live with challenging circumstances.
I am not sure I say it enough but I am so grateful to be leading a school where we have such support
from parents, carers and staff. Thank you.
I have the freedom and choice to be ambitious for my future

Inspire Challenge Achieve
With the holiday approaching and the sunshine meaning children can
spend more time outside, can we please remind families to talk with
children about stranger awareness? We have attached the following
for your information:
As promoted by Warwickshire Safeguarding Children Board’s Taking Care Scheme
please do not teach blanket ‘stranger danger’ messages to children. The reason for
this is that sometimes a stranger is the only person who can help us and is a far saf-
er option than not talking to anyone. E.g. a child lost in a shop is far safer to tell a
stranger they are lost than to wander off looking for the person they have separated
from. We may choose to discuss the likely ‘safest’ strangers in such scenarios such
as a mother with a pram or small children or someone who works in the shop.
However, we do need to clarify the stranger issue as plainly there are
situations we may want to warn children about for their own safety e.g.
not to get in a car with anyone (NOT just someone they don’t know) unless
their parent/guardian knows who/ where/ when etc and has given permission.
not leaving school with someone other than who they were expecting unless
their parent/guardian knows who/ where/ when etc and has given permission
and they have checked with a school staff member. Sometimes a password
system is used so that children are only released into the care of an adult who
can give the correct password – this is usually changed as soon as it has been
not to walk off with anyone (NOT just someone they don’t know) unless their
parent/guardian knows who/ where/ when etc and has given permission.
If someone tries to grab them it is ok to break all the rules of politeness to
others e.g. scream, kick, punch, bite…etc. Whatever they need to do to draw
attention to themselves and alert others to the fact they are in danger.
Please reinforce these safety messages to the children regularly
without giving them the idea that ALL strangers are ‘bad’.
Missing Year 6 Leavers Hoodie—please can you check at home that your child hasn’t accidently returned home with 2 Year 6
Leaver Hoodies? We are missing a hoodie and have not been able to locate it at school. Please return to the school office if you
locate a spare hoodie. Thank you
BJS calls out for votes to bag a share of Tesco’s bag fund
Bilton Junior School is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000
raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores awarded to local community projects.
Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to
Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.
Bilton Junior is one of the groups on the shortlist—we hope to get funding towards an All Weather Running Track.
The aim of installing an all weather proof track is to have an area on the school field that can be used in all weathers.
By having a track that can be used on a daily basis we hope to improve pupils/ parents/ carers physical and mental health, as well
as their general wellbeing. More parents / carers can engage with their children, encouraging social skills and better concentration/
behaviour in school. The track will be used daily to encourage pupils to actively walk /run a mile a day during lunch and break time,
which in time will reduce child obesity.
Our Mission Statement is: ‘I have the freedom and choice to be ambitious for my future’ and we feel that can be in academic,
creative or sporting prowess. It would be amazing to provide our students with a professional running facility and possible produce
the next Dame Kelly Homes or Sir Roger Banister!
Voting is open in all Tesco stores in from Sunday 1st July to Friday 31st August 2018 and customers will cast
their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. Stores to vote in:
Rugby Superstore, CV21 1RG
RUGBY BILTON EXPRESS, CV22 7ND
RUGBY CATLEMARKET EXPRESS, CV21 3AL
RUGBY HELVELYN WAY EXPRESS, CV21 1JT
Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £52 million to more than 16,000 projects up and down the UK. Tesco
customers get the chance to vote for three different groups every time they shop. Every other month, when votes are collected,
three groups in each of Tesco’s regions will be awarded funding.
