Attendance

Well done to 6W, our winning class, but what shocking attendance overall last week! No other class even hit the 96% target. Let`s hope the new term sees an end to all the bugs and sees us fighting fit in the run up to Christmas!

School Trips – Parent contribution

Learning outside the classroom is widely recognised as a valuable and effective means of extending pupil knowledge, enriching pupil understanding, and promoting personal and social development. Ofsted also acknowledge the importance of quality learning experiences outside the classroom for raising pupil attainment. Consequently, this school promotes and encourages the organisation of educational visits for all its pupils, and it is hoped that parents will also recognise the value and importance of these visits, and give their full support.

The school believes wholeheartedly in the value of these experiences, and subsidises the cost of all visits as much as possible in an attempt to ensure that these opportunities are accessible and affordable to all. However, the school seldom has the financial resources to pay the full costs. Consequently, a voluntary contribution is normally requested from parents/guardians to make up the shortfall.

We would just like to note that without all such voluntary contributions, these visits are at risk of being cancelled, as the school is not in a position to provide further financial support. Please regard school trips as an important investment in your child’s education.

 

 

Book Fair

The book fair was a tremendous success and, thanks to all your support, we have approximately £280.00 to spend on books for the children.

 

 

School Uniform

Please can you check the labels in your child’s uniform to ensure the items they have come home with belong to them, as we have a few children with missing named uniform. Please return any items that don’t belong to you and we will reunite them with their owners.
