SUN CREAM

Please can I remind Parent/Carers to put sun cream on pupils before sending them to school!  Please ensure your child brings a bottle of water every day and wears a hat as necessary. Water is available for children during the school day although water bottles help with top ups and health and safety!  Parents should apply sun protection cream to exposed body parts. Although it is not possible to allow pupils to bring such creams to school, there are now products on the market which give protection for the whole of the school day. The school will also encourage the children to sit in the shade out of direct sunlight for part of the lunch break.


SUPERVISING CHILDREN ON YARD

Please can I remind parents to supervise their child whilst waiting to go into school and at the end of the school day. Please stop your child from going in the play sheds and also pulling up any plants! Many Thanks


YEAR 4 SWIMMING

Year 4 swimming starts the first Monday back after half term – Monday 3rd June 2019. Children will walk to Newbridge regardless of the weather so please ensure appropriate clothing and wet weather preparations are made. Please remember swimming is a compulsory part of the curriculum and children must take part – provision will be made for non-swimmers. Please ensure children have a towel and swim wear every day!

HOLIDAY FORMS

Please make sure that you get your holiday forms into the office as soon as possible. Ideally we would like them at least a fortnight in advance. If you put them in last minute then you can expect for them not to have been authorised in time for your holiday.


TEXT RECEIPTS FOR TRIP MONIES

Now that we no longer take cash for school meals, we have decided to introduce a text receipt system for any trip monies sent into school. This will give you peace of mind that your money has been received and processed by the office. Please don’t always expect to have a receipt on the same day that you send it in, as depending on workload your payment might be waiting in the safe for processing. Please keep these electronic receipts as should you need to query payment at a later point then you will need to provide proof of payment. This system will help to safeguard you and us.


DINNER MENU

This week is Menu 1
