There have been a number of warnings recently about the ‘Momo Challenge’ which asks users online to complete certain tasks or challenges, allegedly including forms of self harm.
It would seem to be mostly shared through Whatsapp but there are also a number of videos on Youtube which appear in the sidebar when children are looking for Minecraft tips or similar games.
Please have a look at the webpage below which gives more information for parents and carers.
We are inviting all of our children- and families- to design a logo for our Nursery Children’s new uniform. Clink on the link below for more information. The winning design will be sewn onto the uniform for all of our Nursery children.
More information available from the school if needed.

Please see below a communication from Knowsley Council regarding National Child Sexual Exploitation Day:
Dear Parents/ Carers/ Staff,
The council is once again supporting National CSE day which takes place on Sunday, 18 March 2018 to raise awareness of this important issue.
There will also be a targeted campaign from 18 March through to 23 March which will see council officers teaming up with the police to visit a range of locations to engage with young people and the wider community around this issue – for example, McDonalds, GP surgeries and walk-in centres.
Please find below some text around the campaign which I’d be grateful if you could share through your channels – parent newsletter / your website / social media sites / staff newsletter and noticeboards.
National CSE day
Sunday, 18 March is National CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation) day, which aims to highlight the issues surrounding child sexual exploitation, encouraging everyone to think, identify and speak out against abuse.
The council and partners in Knowsley, including Merseyside Police, are continuing to raise awareness of this sensitive issue by informing, educating and ultimately preventing this form of child sexual abuse which can have devasting effects on the lives of victims and their families.
As part of this work, children and young people, their parents or carers, teachers or professionals working with children are encouraged to visit the listen to my story website – www.listentomystory.co.uk. The listen to my story campaign raises awareness of CSE and importantly, where to get help and support. It also highlights the signs to look-out for including changes in behaviour, unexplained gifts and an increase in mobile phone use or secretive use.

Dear Parents/ Carers,
Please find below a link to information about Knowsley’s upcoming Family Active Fest.
The event is held in partnership between Knowsley Council and Cycling Projects. Judging by the flyer it sounds like it is one not to be missed!
We have a wonderful and FREE opportunity from here at The Reader to engage children 4-8yrs in reading and the natural world.
Following an extremely successful project earlier this year, we are re-launching Story Explorers – imaginative weekly sessions for the whole family. Story Explorers is brought to you in partnership with The Mersey Forest Project and Big Lottery Fund. Due to increased demand, we will now be running two Sunday groups. Our new programmes will launch on Sunday 11 March.
We believe that spending time outside not only helps children and adults to stay active but is also a fantastic way to exercise our imaginations. Being outdoors and connecting with stories can help to improve self-confidence, self-esteem and generally make us feel healthier and happier.
Sessions will run on Sunday mornings for 13 weeks and are suitable for children age 4-8, as well as their parents/carers. Each session will include a story themed nature walk in the park, as well as free refreshments in The Storybarn to round off the morning. Places are very limited so if you are interested in signing up for the programme or would like some more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0151 729 2227.
Wishing you all a great weekend
Acting People and Projects Manager
