Dear Parents/Carers,

Next week’s school target is to remember to play sensibly at break times.

Some of our Year 3 children took part in a School Games multi-skills festival yesterday. They were brilliantly behaved and performed superbly. Some of them were able to join with pupils from Saxton in our first joint team, which was a great opportunity. We are very proud of them all.

We are delighted that a new Rector has been appointed for St Wilfred’s Church. Rev Peter Roberts will join us on 1st October.

As you know, safeguarding is very important to us. If a concern arises regarding the welfare of any child, we have a legal duty to pass on this information. In most cases, this will not mean that the child is at risk of harm and no further action will be taken. Whilst we appreciate that this can be uncomfortable and raise difficult issues, our responsibility to children comes first and we will always try to to act in their interests.

Since the beginning of term, there have been a number of concerns raised about parking at the start
and end of the school day. We are all responsible for the wellbeing of our children and MUST ensure
we give maximum consideration to their safety at all times. Please ensure you park in accordance
with the Highway Code Parking Laws and Stop Rules at all times. These state that we must not park:

 Near to the entrance of a school

 Anywhere that would prevent access for the Emergency Services

 In front of an entrance to someone else's property

 Opposite a road junction or within 10 meters (32 ft) near junctions or corners (except in
authorised spaces)

 Opposite another parked vehicle if it causes an obstruction

 Anywhere the kerb got lowered. This is usually done to assist powered mobility vehicles and wheelchair users

 On a pavement. This may obstruct and inconvenience pedestrians, especially for those with visual impairments, people with prams or pushchairs and wheelchair users.

If you do witness any of the above, please send photographic evidence to the Police. We are unableto take any action, but they will deal with cases accordingly. Many thanks for your support in this
matter.   We are also sending a leaflet home today with regards to safer parking.

Please see the attached letter from Berts Barrow.  They are trying to raise much needed funds for school so can you support them by either taking them fallen apples from your tree or attending their event.

We have attached some information from North Yorkshire Police regarding keeping our children safe.
