Welcome to Bickerton Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School.
We are a good rural Primary School near Malpas, Cheshire, where the behaviour of our pupils is outstanding. Most of our children transfer at the end of Year 6 to Bishop Heber High School, Malpas.
Safeguarding Children Update
The staff and governors are always evaluating our practice here at school to ensure that systems are in place to enable us to keep every one of our children completely safe. A letter to remind and update parents about some of these was sent home on the 9th February 2016. The letter contains important information about E-Safety, Car Parking, Coming into School, Birthday Cake and Sweets and Education Welfare Officer (EWO). A downloadable version of the letter can be found below.

Below, there is a link to CEOP's 'Thinkuknow' website which has a section for parents where you can find information about keeping children safe online.
As well as keeping children safe online, please remember to keep them safe by looking at the age certificates on any games they play or DVDs they watch to ensure that children are only accessing age appropriate games and films. This is also something that the class teachers and I talk about regularly with the children in lessons and assemblies.
Look out for posters about the second police drop-in service being held at our school in the near future. This is being run by our local police officers one lunch-time.
We believe that regularly raising the issue of bullying is the best way to prevent it from happening and to ensure that it has no place in our school. In November, we held our annual 'Anti-Bullying Week'. Since September, in our assemblies, we have thought about keeping safe on-line, frinedships, what bullying is and what to do if anyone has a problem with relationships or if they are being bullied. Class 5 children have worked on the definition of bullying which is well understood throughout the school. They have also acted out scenarios in assembly which have helped the other children to understand what is and is not bullying, and what to do about it.
