PARENT OVERVIEWS

Parent Overviews for the Summer Term will be sent home in the next couple of weeks. Parent overviews will outline what your child will be learning so you can support at home!

NATIONAL TESTS

National Tests start on Wednesday 2nd May 2018 for Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6. Tests take place until Wednesday 9th May 2018. Please ensure children attend school during this period. No holidays will be authorised during this period.

The school website now has a wealth of guidance and past papers if parents would like to have a look and try some examples with your child at home!

HOLIDAY FORMS

Could you please try and submit your holiday forms 2 weeks before travel date.

FAIR TRADE WEEK

It is Fair Trade Week this week! Children will be participating in a range of activities to raise awareness and understanding of Fair Trade.

YEAR 6 LEAVERS

Please note there is a change to the Parent Diary. Year 6 leavers will now be on Friday 20th July 2018 in the afternoon instead of Tuesday 24th July 2018.

CLUBS

Clubs start this week, Foundation Phase football tonight, Yr.3/4 football on Tuesday.  Cookery for Mrs. Tavas’ and Mr. Senior’s class on Wednesday and Gardening on Thursday (you should have been informed by now if your child has a place in gardening club).  There will be no Year 5/6 football until further notice.

IMPORTANT – TEXT SYSTEM AND NEW APP

Over the next few weeks before and after Easter we will be phasing out our current Text System and it will be replaced by a School App suitable for both Android and Apple devices (Tablets and phones).  The App will enable you to receive notifications (e.g. messages) and it will also contain school documents and newsletters.  Anyone in the family can have the App so we will not be restricted to only one person like we are now with the text system.  You will also be able to send secure absence notifications to the school as well as many other useful things.  You will need to download the App when you receive the guidance letter from us.  We will be rolling out the App two classes at a time, it will be essential for you, and anyone else in the family who requires notifications, to download the App.  Please make everyone aware in your family.  It will be important to follow the instructions carefully and enable notifications during set up.

GREEN RUBBER BARK

We have a number of huge bags of green rubber bark that we have removed from the courtyard.  If anyone wants any for gardening please call into school.  You will have to bring your own bags and move it yourself but it is free!

AMENDMENT TO THE PARENTAL DIARY
