Parents' Coffee Morning Sessions

Oral Health

The coffee morning on Oral Health for parents went very well. Thank you to the parents who were able to attend. This was followed by oral health workshops for Reception and Year 1 pupils which was well received by both parents and pupils.

During the workshop, pupils were taught about the importance of brushing their teeth, how to brush their teeth and how often. The health promoter demonstrated this with model teeth, toothbrushes, toothpaste and also images. They were taught about which foods to either avoid or limit their consumption due to their negative impact. All children were fully engaged in the sessions and were keen to answer questions posed by the lead.  

Pupils in Year 1 have been given Colgate toothbrushes and toothpaste to take home. Pupils in reception will begin their oral health supervised toothbrushing programme in January. Consent forms have been sent home. If you have not already done so, please return them as soon as possible so that all Reception pupils may participate in this valuable programme. 
There will be an oral health and healthy eating assembly for KS2 and Year 2 pupils in January. 
Pupils' feedback was very positive. 
One Reception pupil said:
I liked the workshop because I learnt about how to look after my teeth. 
One Year 1 pupil responded: 
Thank you for the toothpaste and toothbrush. I have always wanted my own toothpaste.
