Dear Parents/Carers,

Please take time to talk about our school values for next week with your child.

We provide a secure, caring and supportive environment in which pupils understand the difference between right and wrong, and high standards of behaviour are expected.

Next week’s school target is to be respectful in the dinner hall.

We have been having some technical issues with our website and quite a few of you have been unable to get onto it. Could you please try again as these issues seem to have been resolved.  Do let the office know if you are still having difficulties so we can report it.  Thank you.

We are delighted that Mrs Starr returns from maternity leave next week. She will resume her teaching commitment in Year 2 and SENDCo duties. We would like to thank Mrs Langan for all her hard work covering Mrs Starr’s absence.

Having evaluated the school staffing structure, governors have made some made some amendments for next year. The school will no longer have two Assistant Headteachers, but will instead have one Deputy Headteacher. We are delighted that from September Mrs Law has been appointed Deputy Headteacher. We are also delighted that Mrs Langan has been appointed as full-time teacher from September. Class responsibilities will be announced after half term.

Please remember that children in Key Stage 2 will be taking tests throughout next week. It is important that all children attend school every day so that they can take tests that will give teachers an accurate measure of the progress they have made in their learning. Pupils in Year 6 will take statutory tests (SATS) and it is essential that they attend and are punctual. We will try to maintain a quiet environment at all times and would appreciate your support in helping to achieve this.

Don’t forget that Sports Day is on Monday 21st May. Children should know the colour of their team and should come to school dressed in that colour. Parents are welcome to support the afternoon races, which will start at 1.30pm.

National Walk to School Week

14th May – 18th May

Why not try to leave the car at home one day and have a walk to school? Live too far away? Why not park up before you get to school and have a little walk?

We are the Junior Road Safety Officers at Monk Fryston School and during Walk to School Week we will be running a competition. We would like children to take photos or draw pictures of things that they see on their walk to school and bring them in to show us.

Hand in your entries to Ella or James in year 5 by Friday 25th May.  Don’t forget to include your name and class!
