‘Life in all its Fullness’ John 10:10 underpins our school vision. Currently, in school, we are all thinking about what this bible quote means to us personally. Parents and carers, we would love to hear about what it means to you too! If you would like some inspiration, you can see some that we have already collected on the Vision and Values page on our website. We would love to share some of your thoughts on the website too so please email them in to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have many parents and staff who are passionate about clean air and healthy life choices. Please read this information some have shared with us.
According to the Council’s own reports, cars are the biggest contributor to air pollution in Bradford, causing 1 in 20 early deaths in the region, and costing local NHS Trusts around £3million per year. Around 200 people are killed or seriously injured on Bradford’s roads every year. And still, millions of pounds are being spent adding capacity to the road network, while too little is done to provide the infrastructure and incentives for alternative modes of transport. This is why 40% of journeys under 2 miles are currently made by car. Now is the time to enable and encourage active travel: a simple lifestyle change that has such enormous health and social benefits.
Shipley & Saltaire Living Streets, in support of the excellent campaigning done by the Bradford Shipley Travel Alliance, Clean Air Bradford, and Friends of the Earth, are calling for an end to car-centric thinking in planning and transport (avoid), more joined-up cycling and walking routes (shift), and measures to prevent antisocial driving, parking and rat-running (improve). We need your help! Commit to leaving the car at home whenever possible, or get in touch to join our team. We especially need some help from parents of primary-aged children (to start a walking/cycling bus and play streets), young adults with a flair for social media (to run our accounts), and artistic folk (to do some tactical urbanism).
We have a choice, now, between a cleaner future for people, places and our planet, or continuing with activities which damage our health and environment. Walk with us…and make a start next week!
It is Clean Air Day on Thursday 17th June. The aim of the day is promote awareness of the massive negative impact air pollution has, particularly on our children. According to Bradford Council, cars are the biggest contributor to air pollution in the District, causing 1 in 20 early deaths in the region and costing local NHS Trusts around £3million per year. It is the cause of over one third of our childhood asthma cases. Many of our Wycliffe children usually walk, scoot or cycle to school. If you normally drive to school why not make Thursday 17th June a day to try something different? Just for the day try out walking, scooting or cycling. Join in and help us all have a healthier environment.

Primary school obligations are to provide two face to face parents’ evenings a year and a written report. With COVID restrictions and disruptions to children’s education this has proved very difficult – with one being held via phone calls to date.
From September, and again since lockdown in January, many children have continued to miss time in school. To enable us to have plenty to say and share with you about your fantastic children we have scheduled our next one for Wednesday June 23rd. It will be done face to face but virtually through Teachers2Parents. A booking system will be put in place nearer the time with instructions etc. Slots will be at 9-minute intervals with a countdown warning parties that the next parent is waiting. We will of course rely on internet connections and yourselves having the technology to do this – and will support nearer the time if issues arise.
Teachers are always available for a quick chat if you have something specific that you are concerned about – please ring the office to arrange this.
On Friday 25th June, we will be celebrating One Britain One Nation day with activities based around the theme ‘Our strength is our people’. More will be revealed in June but we would love it if you could come dressed in blue, white and red for the celebrations!
