Please take time to talk about our school values for next week with your child.
All staff are highly valued, highly motivated and part of a supportive, professional team.
Next week’s school target is to remember to follow the cloakroom rules.
Year 6 are our top attendees this week with 98.5%. Fantastic!
We will have a focus upon Anti-Bullying next week, following from the national anti-bullying week that you may have noted in the news. We will give pupils opportunities to reflect upon how they can help prevent bullying in all its forms. To support at home, we have purchased information for parents which will be sent home on Monday, and don’t forget that we have the internet safety workshop on 29th November.
We have arranged for someone to film the Foundation Nativity and KS1 production, you will then be able to purchase a copy of the DVD on ParentPay. We are hoping this will allow parents/family to enjoy the production without struggling to film it at the same time. More details to follow nearer the time.
Thank you for all the contributions to Children in Need. The children looked fantastic! We will let you know how much our school raised next week.
We would like to congratulate Mrs Starr on the birth of her daughter, born 13th November. Mummy and baby both doing well.
Don’t forget that the PTA Race Night is POSTPONED. We are collecting donation for the raffle, tombola, and bottle stall for the Christmas Fayre on 2nd December.
Teacher training applications have now opened. If you know someone who may be interested in training in our alliance, please do ask them to contact us.
You will have seen the letter sent out jointly by all schools that plan to convert into academies. This is an excellent opportunity that will support the provision for our children. There will be an opportunity for you to raise questions and air your views in January, and we hope to engage all our community in the consultation process.
As the weather is getting colder, it is a good opportunity to remind everyone about the procedures that will be taken if we ever need to close the school. Please be assured that this will be a very last resort and we will remain open whenever it is possible and safe to do so. Should the school be closed we will contact you by text, place an alert on our website, and publicise this through local BBC radio and Minster FM.
