Don’t forget that we have our Father’s Day gift shop in school tomorrow (Friday) where your child will have the opportunity to buy something special for their Dad for £1. This is a great experience for the children as they get chance to buy something without Mum or Dad being there, making them feel quite grown up!
Just to confirm that this year’s sports day will take place on the afternoon of Thursday 29th June 2017, starting at 1.15pm. Can you please ensure that your child has their hat and water bottle with them.
We are really pleased with how our Breakfast Club is going. We now have an average of 15 children attending each day and both Mrs Mailer and Mrs Billings are having to set more chairs at the table!
Just a reminder that if you wish your child to attend Breakfast Club each day, please ensure that you have completed the form and booked in advance. This can be done by telephoning the office or downloading the form from the website.
Now that we have a high number of children attending, we are unable to accept any child that is ‘dropped off’ on the day, without prior booking. This is because we have to ensure that we have adequate staffing numbers so we are within the recommended limit.
We really hope that our Breakfast Club continues to grow – thank you to all who have used the provision. We know that it makes a difference to the children who attend but also those parents who need to get to work early in the morning.
Letters have gone home today with your child for the Father’s Day lunch which is scheduled for Wednesday 14th June 2017.
Can you please ensure that your reply slips and payment are returned by no later than Thursday 8th June this week in order for us to obtain sufficient quantities of food, ensuring everyone is fed!
We look forward to welcoming your child back into school after the half-term break, looking smart and ready to learn.
Please remember to send your child with a hat and sun cream in the event that the hot weather of last week continues.
The inset days for next year have been set – see the letter link below. Please also note the process for applying for leave of absence in the correspondence.
Mr Smith would like to invite all parents and carers to his next Cuppa and Cake session on Friday 9th June at 9am.
As usual, this will be an informal get together to get feedback and ideas about how we can improve the school further into the next academic year. We will also discuss changes to our uniform policy.
We hope to see you there!
The term dates for the next school year together with our inset days are available from the information section of our website under school term dates. Alternatively click here to take you directly to the page.
We have seen a number of children bringing ‘spinners’ into school lately – as they appear to be the latest craze.
There has been much in the media about the place of ‘ Fidget Spinners’ in a child’s day to day school experience. These toys have been advertised as being a useful resource for children who have been diagnosed with specific educational difficulties. However, at present, we have no children in school who have been professionally recommended one of these toys to support them in school. Also, in line with our school policy, we strongly discourage children from bringing in toys from home. This is because it can be too distracting and it can also create a social divide between some children – we are also not responsible for any items if they go missing or get damaged. In many schools also, there have been an increase in accidents due to the usage of Fidget Spinners.
For these reasons, we would kindly ask that children do not bring a Fidget Spinner toy into school. This is a decision that we have taken with the best interests of our children at heart and after consulting with other local schools.
We all hope that our children will continue to enjoy safe spinning away from school.
Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Forrest is pleased to announce that she and her partner are expecting their first child in November.
This is a really exciting time for them both and from everybody connected with the school, we wish them many congratulations.
Will it be a boy or a girl?
