In our PSHE lessons this term, we will be discussing the NSPCC’s Underwear Rule. This is designed to teach pupils how to stay safe from sexual abuse, without giving explicit information or telling scary stories or even using the term “sexual abuse.” In the lesson, children will learn about the ‘PANTS’ acrostic, which stands for:

  • Privates are private
  • Always remember your body belongs to you
  • No means no
  • Talk about secrets that upset you
  • Speak up, someone can help


The lessons will introduce a range of ideas, all delivered in a way that’s fully age-appropriate. These include:

  • “appropriate” and “inappropriate” touching 
  • your child’s right to say no to things that make them feel upset or uncomfortable 
  • naming parts of the body 
  • who your child can turn to if they ever feel upset or worried.

If you would like to know more about the NSPCC’s campaign and see how you can help keep your children safe in partnership with your child’s school, more information can be found by clicking here for the parent guide or clicking here to view a short film on the NSPCC website.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your child’s class teacher.

 First half of the autumn term.

We stayed down in the summer camp for the first half of this term and enjoyed our chats, crafts, snacks and end of half term cooking session in the wild part of the woods. Now we have moved camp, up to the top of the woods, for our winter sessions, where music and singing around the fire, warm soup, storytelling, winter crafts and fairy lights in the trees will make this a very different, special time of the year.

You may have noticed...(please read on)

Following our PTFA meeting yesterday we have decided to shift our focus to some new fundraising events that are less labour intensive and reliant on volunteers. Please share any ideas for fundraising events (such as a quiz or bingo night) on the Appledore School PTFA facebook page or email admin@ We will discuss all these ideas and plan a new Spring event at the next PTFA meeting on 17th January at 7pm. We are hoping more of you can join us.

Unfortunately we are unable to run a full Xmas Fayre this year due to a lack of volunteers. Instead there will be a Xmas Jolly on 13th December 3 - 5pm with enterprise stalls selling your children's Xmas crafts, refreshments and a visit from Santa. We will ask for your best bakes nearer the time and more details will follow.

Kind Regards The PTFA
