Tooth brushing in school

Tooth brushing in Explorers Class


I am delighted to tell you that our school is taking part in a Greater Manchester tooth brushing programme to strengthen children’s teeth. This involves our Explorers children brushing their own teeth, using a fluoride toothpaste at school. 


Supervised tooth brushing in early year’s settings has been shown to be effective at reducing tooth decay in children. Each child taking part will receive a free toothbrush and toothpaste to use in their class under the supervision of our staff. 


The aim of the programme is to help reduce dental decay in children and with your support we can reinforce your home tooth brushing routine. You can continue to brush your child’s teeth morning and night and to supervise their tooth brushing until he/she is 7 years old.


WORLD THINKING DAY- FRIDAY 22ND FEBRUARY Some of our children wore their uniforms with pride in school today to celebrate World Thinking Day on the 22nd Feburary during the half term holiday. The day focuses on International Friendship and encourages the children to think about guiding and scouting all over the world.
