As part of the closer working relationships between all schools in this area I have been appointed to a secondment of 3 ½ terms to work as an Executive Head Teacher across Porthleven and Mullion Schools.

Please be reassured that I will remain as Head Teacher of Porthleven School and am fully committed and determined to secure the best possible outcomes for your children. This role will begin in June.

During assembly this morning we published the above image and the following message on our Facebook page:

We are demonstrating to pupils how easy it is to share images on social media. Please share our image and in the comments box write where you are in the world. Thank you.

 Within twenty minutes we had over 300 views 40 shares and reached New Zealand, Australia, Germany and Spain!  We will continue to check this post to monitor its journey around the world.

 This week we held a follow up assembly to see how far Derek had travelled over half term. The results were fascinating with views exceeding 86,000 and spanning almost all continents. Attached to this post is the slide show used in assembly. It has been a worthwhile lesson in the power of social media and the children have grasped the concept magnificently.

 We have had worldwide support with this project for which we are very grateful.  One quote worthy of a mention; "It's so good to see Schools visually showing children what can happen & how quickly. I volunteer for NSPCC presenting 'Speak Out, Stay Safe' programs through assemblies & workshops. Part of our focus is online safety. Hence my earlier link of Share Aware."

Creative Play markings were installed on the KS2 area.  We now have an even more vibrant and exciting playground to be proud of.  We have installed these in response to the pupils survey when girls said they would like more to do on the playground that was not football.  We hope they enjoy the new games.
