As you will have seen on an earlier website post, Mr Smith clarified the diary dates for this upcoming half term. In case you missed it, please click on the link below to our diary dates page.
Please make note of the dates for the rewards assemblies this half term as they are not every week.
We are currently in the process of updating and reviewing several areas within our administration at school. You will have already seen the launch of the school Facebook page in order to enhance the ways we communicate with our families. In the Headteachers blog, Mr Smith has been talking about other new systems being brought in in the near future, such as an online payment system and a parents evening appointment system, the latter of which we will be launching this week.
Below are two documents giving guidance on what to do when you receive your text/email asking you to book an appointment.
User Manual Parents – Desktop Computer
User Manual Parents – Mobile Devices
It is important that you action the appointment request as soon as you receive the link as appointments will be on a first come first serve basis.
As you will have seen from the Diary Dates, there is a Parents’ Evening scheduled at the start of next term for Happy Hedgehogs, Super Squirrels, Brilliant Badgers and Funky Foxes. This is an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss the progress they are making. Note; Wise Owls have already had their Parents’ Evening for this term.
We hope you will find the system easy to navigate and book your appointments. The system will also send you a reminder of your appointment in case you forget.
After school clubs have been scheduled for the next half term, please click here for more information.
Further to our communication regards setting up a school Facebook page, we are pleased to announce that we have now gone live.
If you search for Coton in the Elms CofE Primary, you should find us. Please click on the links to follow and/or like the posts as this will be used as an additional communication tool with parents.
On 18th December we will be holding a music concert in school, where children can get a change to showcase their musical talents. If your child wishes to play their instrument in the concert, can they please let Mr Smith know by Friday 8th December, what musical pieces they would like to play so we can establish the running order.
This Friday, we will once again be hosting a coffee morning in support of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. The coffee morning will start at 9am through to 10am, so once you’ve waved goodbye to your child(ren) on the yard, pop in to school via the reception entrance and enjoy a cup of coffee, tea and cake for this worthwhile cause.
Last year we raised an amazing £173 and we would hope to raise a substantial amount again this year with your help.
We look forward to seeing you there – thank you for your support.
