Jersey Children's Day 2021
Children and young people in Jersey are being encouraged to make their mark for Jersey’s second Childrens’ Day.
The Citizen’s Panel, set up following the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry, will commemorate Children’s Day on 3 July and celebrate childhood.
Activities involving children and young people will take place across Jersey and you are invited to join in by selecting activities from our Summertime fun programme to enjoy with your child either on Children's Day or across the summer break.
Transition in schools
Your child will transfer to a new year group, key stage or possibly a new school in September and the preparations for this will start to go ahead on Thursday 1 July and Friday 2 July this week.
Whilst schools are in a much better place for transition than they were in 2020, there are still many things for each school to consider to ensure they happen safely.
Schools will contact you directly with their arrangements in advance of the two days so that you can share these with your child.
Become an upstander
It is useful to be reminded about how to stop bullying at any time of year.
By becoming an upstander, your child would be taking a stand against bullying. Bullying can make children and young people feel threatened in terms of their physical and emotional safety at school or in the community. Anti-bullying conversations at home can be very supportive of the work your child’s school is trying to do.
To help you and your child to talk about bullying and to know what to do to put a stop to it, we have put together some resources and links which we hope will be helpful.
