Welcome back for the start of another new school year. It`s lovely to have the children back with us after what we hope was a really good and enjoyable summer for all! A special welcome to all our new children and families 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 belonging to your child are named so they can be returned swiftly if misplaced.
Staffing News I would like to welcome Mrs Lees who has joined us as our Year 5 teacher, and welcome back Mrs Hayton and Mrs McGarrell who have returned from maternity leave. We also welcome Mrs Dixon and Miss Lomax who both join us as new lunchtime supervisors.
First Response 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.
