Dear Parents/Carers,

Next week’s school target is to listen for the bell and follow the end of playtime routine.

Please take time to talk about our school values for next week with your child.
We encourage excellence in both teaching and learning.

Year 6 are our top attendees this week with 99.5%. Fantastic!

Next week we will be hosting part of the Schools Yorkshire Cycle Tour. As a celebration of national Bike Week, children and young people from 95 schools across Yorkshire are taking part in a 245-mile cycling baton relay which started on Monday, 12 June in Sheffield and will finish in Leeds on 27 June. The team will visit our school on Wednesday 21st June, and will stay for lunch before being cheered on by our children as they depart towards Leeds.

We have noticed that a number of children are riding scooters to school. We encourage this as a part of a healthy lifestyle, but would like to remind them that these shouldn’t be ridden on school premises (particularly the slope) and should be stored in the bike racks near the Community Centre entrance.

Please remember that if your children stay on the school site after the end of the day they must be supervised by parents. We expect them to follow the same rules that we have during the day, as these will help to maintain their safety. They should not be climbing any trees or playing games that we would not allow during playtimes.

You may have noticed in local press reports that one of the schools in the Star Alliance, Saxton CE Primary, has recently been placed in special measures by Ofsted. The alliance continues to work with that school to support aspects of school improvement and improve outcomes for their pupils. As the lead school for the alliance, Monk Fryston has been named by some news agencies as a link school for Saxton. This will fall within the normal remit of our Teaching School improvement work, deploying system leaders as expert practitioners to offer coaching support for their existing staff.  Some of this support will be provided by our teachers, and will be managed through our existing systems and protocols.

 As you will be aware, the price of our school meals is currently £2.10 per meal. This cost has been fixed for a number of years and hasn’t increased to take into account inflation or increasing wage costs. The price will remain the same for the rest of this academic year, but is likely to rise slightly from September.

Emilia Milne in Y4 is collecting old towels, pet toys as well as dog and cat food  to take into an animal shelter for her Archie B project. If you have any donations there will be a box in the school entrance to leave them in, please bring them in by Friday 23rd June.  She has made a poster which we have attached.

There is a vacancy for a school crossing patrol person.  Please see attached flier for more information.  Closing date 2nd July 2017.

Hillam & Monk Fryston Cricket Club are hosting a ‘Proms at the Pavilion’ on 15th July 2017, 5.30pm-11pm.
