Bulletin 581 11th January 2019

Welcome Back!

It seems the Christmas holidays have vanished into the distance! Whilst the break is always welcome, it is also good to get back to routine and that is what we have been doing since our return. Very soon you will receive details of this term’s Treetop Cafes and those are always well attended, so book your place early!

School Clubs

Letters regarding school clubs for this term were sent home yesterday.

Year 6 Booster Maths

These sessions are going well and being very much enjoyed by the children attending. If your child is in year 6 and not attending the maths sessions, they are really missing out!

Dinner Menu Changes

Please note the following changes to the main meal menu next week:-

Week 3 Thursday 17th January 2019:-

Main Meal:- Cheese and Tomato Pizza served with potato wedges, baked beans and sweetcorn

ParentPay

We still have some parents that are not ordering meals for their children online via ParentPay and have not brought packed lunches to school. Up until now, the office staff have ordered lunches in these situations to avoid a child not having a lunch to eat. In future we shall not be doing this so if a child comes to school and has not had a lunch ordered for them, we shall be contacting the parents in the expectation that they provide a packed lunch for their child and bring it to school. Thank you for your cooperation and support in this matter.

Admissions to Primary School

A brief reminder if you have children who were born between 1/09/2014 and 31/08/2015, you must apply for their place at primary school in September 2019 by the 15th January 2019. This applies even if you have children already at school. We have had several families visit us on our open mornings, but are very happy to arrange visits for those that missed out.

Bulletin

The next newsletter will be on Friday 25th January, 2019.

 

Bulletin 580 3rd December 2018

Academisation

As I hope you already know, we became an academy on the 1st of November, joining the Avocet Academy Trust. Over this year, you will see this change reflected in a number of developments across the school. Some of these will require consultation with children and parents so do keep an eye out for these opportunities.

Christmas Bazaar – 1st December, 2-4pm

Thank you to all the Friends, staff and children that helped to set up and run the event, and thank you to all the families that came along and helped to make it a success! Great fun was had by all!

Children in Need Day

We raised a fantastic total of £466 on Children in Need day just through non-uniform and the cake sale. Thank you!

Nativity Plays

The dates for both the reception and Key Stage 1 nativity plays have now been sent home. If you have not booked your tickets yet, please contact the school office as soon as possible. This year there will also be two Community performances – KS1 classes on 7th December at 2pm and Reception classes on 11th December at 1.45pm, to which we invite the more senior members of the local community to come along. If you know of anyone who would like to attend, please ask them to contact the school office.

School Clubs

Just a reminder that next week will be the last week for all of our after school clubs before the Christmas break.

Parking

Unfortunately, I have received complaints from nearby residents about the way that some parents park at the start and end of the day. Please be considerate about where you park; we are in a residential area. In addition, parking on double yellow lines or the yellow zig-zag areas outside the school is both illegal and dangerous.

Admissions to Primary School
