Appointments

Your child’s learning time is very valuable, so please try to make any appointments for doctors, dentists etc after school. If you cannot avoid having an appointment in school time, please be aware that before 10:30am many children are in Read Write Inc or literacy groups, not in their normal class. Please make sure you know which group your child is in before you come to the office so that we can find them quickly for you.

Non-Uniform Day
Friday 16th February
Theme: Casual
Don’t forget your
50p donation to school funds

 

quickly for you.

 

KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE ONLINE

World Safer Internet Day, on Tuesday 6th February, tries to highlight the importance of keeping safe online. This is particularly important for children, who may not understand the dangers. Games such as Reblox may be fun to play, but have hidden dangers such as content unsuitable for children, and the ability for strangers to "chat" to your child. Please make sure that you know what your child is playing, and talk to them about staying safe.

Reminder:

We are very proud of our lovely school, and want to keep it looking good. Please can you encourage your children to always put their rubbish in the litter bins.

DINNER MENUS

We have reviewed the effects of changing around the dinner menus in Hall 2, and have decided that it did not have a positive effect. Therefore after half term we will go back to having the same menu in both halls everyday.

Thank you

 

HOLIDAY ACTIVITY CLUBS

Our fun holiday activity clubs will be running during half term on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thanks to Lottery funding, we will have more places and more fun than ever before! Look out for the letters from Mr Malooq for more details.
