Welcome Back! I do hope you all enjoyed a good holiday. I would like to welcome all new families and new children who have joined our school and hope that you quickly settle into our new routines. I am looking forward to working with you as we support your children in their all-round development. If you are unsure about anything, please ask either your child’s class teacher or call in at the school office. We are thrilled to see all the children looking so smart, let`s keep the momentum going throughout the school year! Reminder: please ensure all items have your child’s name so they can be returned swiftly if misplaced.
I would like to welcome our new member of staff: Miss Carter has joined us as the new Year 3 Teacher.
Please may I remind all parents and carers that our school operates the First Response initiative. This is very important because it is aimed at keeping our children safe. It is school policy that the school office is informed when a child is absent from school on the first day of every absence and not by letter upon their return. It is your responsibility to visit or telephone the school office before 9.30 am. The telephone is manned from 8.15 am and you are able to leave a message on the answer phone before that time. Please ensure that this policy is adhered to so that we know all the children have got to school safely.
A reminder that dinner money is now £1.85 per day (£9.25 for a full week).
