Dear Parents/Carers,

For future diary dates and the chicken rota please refer to the ‘calendar’ on our website.  For Golden Table and Golden Book refer to the ‘Golden Book & Golden Table’ tag also on the website.

Next week’s school target ; Remember polite behaviour in the dining hall.

Welcome back! It appears to have been a really good holiday as all our children (and staff!) look tanned, relaxed, and ready for another great year.

We would like to welcome all the children who are new to our school this term. We hope that you will all be very happy and successful with us. We are also delighted to welcome Miss Fenton who is our new Reception teacher. Mr Blackwood has also started in his new role as Assistant Headteacher.

Most families are now in the habit of checking our website for information. This is our main method of communicating with you and will normally hold all the information you need, including a calendar of everything that is happening in our school. Please do remember to check it regularly.

We would like to remind everyone who drops off and collects children at the start and end of the day to park sensibly and sensitively around the school. It is really important that we maintain a safe environment for children crossing roads, and it also helps us to remain good neighbours with those living close to the school. Several times this week we have noted cars parked on both side of Water Lane. Not only is this discourteous to other road users, it can prevent emergency services from accessing the village, so we would politely request that you carefully consider whether you are leaving your vehicle in an appropriate place and help us to preserve the safety of all our families. Thank you.

Don’t forget that the PTA AGM is on 22nd September at 7.30pm. This is a great way for you to become involved in the wider life of the school and help to raise much needed funds to benefit all our children. Official positions will be elected at this meeting. Please do come along and support us – everyone is invited!

This year’s harvest festival will be held in church on 9th October at 9.30am.  Children can bring along fruit and vegetables but please remember the children have to carry these down to church themselves.  If you would like to send a larger donation then please just drop it in at the church that morning. The harvest produce will again be going to the Salvation Army in York for their work with the homeless and their food bank for struggling families.

Sherburn High School would like to invite parents from Years 4 to 6 to their open evening on 17.9.15, for full details please see the attached letter.
