 As part of our PSHE curriculum, the children are familiar with Harold the giraffe who helps teach them about spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of life.

Harold – the happy, healthy giraffe mascot is a favourite with children – and will be posting a daily blog: Harold’s Daily Diary!  Here’s the link to it:

 Each day he’ll be giving children positive, fun messages about what he’s doing to stay happy and healthy while he’s off school, separated from his friends. He’ll invite the children to join in with activities he’s doing.

 He’ll be giving children ideas for how he – and they – can get a routine going for their day, including the things we all need to do to live a balanced, healthy life. These include:


·         Taking regular exercise

·         Being creative

·         Helping others

·         Connecting with others – in ways that are safe

·         Mindfulness – learning to enjoy the moment, here and now.



Join Joe Wicks daily at 9am for a PE session online.

"Starting Monday 23rd March I'm going to be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on my YouTube channel. With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive. Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more  energised, and more optimistic.  

The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved. You don't need any equipment, just tune in to my YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout."

Coming soon..... at the end of this week, there will be some fun Easter activities to keep you busy over the holidays.

School closures and John Port transition information

John Port have sent out this e-mail to local schools -

Dear Primary Partners,

 In these uncertain times we will continue to communicate with you regarding the Year 6-7 Transition process. Unfortunately due to the school closures we are unable to complete all of the planned Phase 2 visits. We will make a decision regarding Phase 3 visits in April/May following government advice. We may be unable to offer the GAP and LEARN groups as planned will still plan for SEN needs in our new intake with any information you can provide us with. We are looking at building a Google form that we will be able to send to you after Easter, to enable you to share information with us about your students.


If you have any 'All About You Forms' that have been completed, please post these to John Port Spencer Academy. If you did not get the chance to complete these with students, the form is attached. Could this be emailed to students to complete at home and then emailed back to us at Please reassure students that we will do all that we can to make sure that their transition to Year 7 in September is well supported.


We will have to  make a decision regarding the Induction Days planned for 30th June and 1st July once we know more details about the length of school closures. 

All About You Forms...

We didn't get to complete these in school so if your child is going to John Port can you please fill out and send back the form as instructed above. Thank you.

Mr Mackinnon
