Relationships & Health Education Policy - draft policy for consultation, by Mrs Mottram

Date: 5th Feb 2020 @ 5:57pm

To help you understand how the school will teach Relationships and Health Education from September 2020, a draft Relationships and Health Education Policy has been written in conjunction with other schools in Derby City. It states how we will put into practice the government guidance that becomes statutory in September 2020. 

This policy is being shared with parents, the governing body and the wider community and can be viewed and downloaded from our policies page in Parent Information.

Any comments you wish to make about the content of the policy can be directed to the governing body and/or the headteacher by Friday 6th March. These comments will be considered prior to ratifying the policy at a full governing body meeting.

The next phase of the process will be to determine the scheme of work and resources that will be used to ensure our school completes its statutory duty. The group of schools are now working on these and will provide opportunities for parents to view these materials during the summer term.

What visitors think about Bishop Lonsdale, by Mrs Mottram

Date: 9th Jul 2017 @ 5:34pm

We were delighted to welcome visitors from St Georges Church of England School, New Mills, to Bishop Lonsdale and Mr Hetherington and Miss Brownhall received this lovely e-mail after the visit:


"I just wanted to say thank you again for allowing us into your lovely school. We were really struck by how generous you both were with your time and advice.

Your school was so lovely and we know you’ve had to take the difficult journey that we now face.

Before we arrived we were focussed on seeing the Early Years spaces but it was seeing the school as a whole, alongside the Early Years that had such an impact for us. An industrious hum emanated from every classroom.  It was so calm and purposeful and it really felt like every moment for learning counted.

I even peeled off my visitor sticker this morning with a pang of reluctance!!

Thanks so much again"
