Welcome back to a new a school year. I hope you all had a lovely summer. There will be many events happening this term so please make sure you keep up to date through these letters.
Our Welcome Service will be taking place at St Mary’s Church. Families of pupils new to our school are welcome to attend as we celebrate their arrival at our school. The time and date will be shared shortly.
All welcome to our informal Coffee /Tea mornings (drink and natter). These are held every Tuesday after dropping your children off at School (8.45 till 10.00am)
Under school age children welcome too as there are lots of toys for them to play with.
Please join us in the Children’s Centre with Mrs Priestley suppling the drinks and biscuits.
Walking home from school:
You will have received a letter asking you to give permission for pupils in years 4, 5 and 6 to walk home on their own. The deadline to return this letter is Monday 12th September. After this date pupils will not be allowed to walk home on their own without permission.
We also asked for the names of any other adult who may pick your child up from school. Please remember that pupils will not be allowed to walk home with anyone other than those with parental responsibility if they are not on this list.
Walking to Church:
Please note that during the school year we regularly walk to St Mary’s Church. This could be for Church services or for rehearsals for performances eg Christmas. We are therefore asking for blanket permission for your child to participate. Pupils are always accompanied by adults and appropriate precautions are put in place. Children will also wear a hi-vis vest. If you do not give permission for your child to do this can you please contact school to make other arrangements.
Mobile phones in school:
Some of our older children bring a mobile phone into school. This is usually because they are walking home on their own. If you wish your child to bring in a mobile phone, please can you request a permission form.
I sent out earlier this week an invitation to join an afternoon tea held at St Mary’s Church. I have attached the poster again so you can see the details.
New phone number?
If you have a new phone number, or if there is a change in contact details, please contact school to update us.
Please ensure your account is cleared for Breakfast Club and Tea-Time club. If there are any outstanding amounts on these accounts from this point forward you will be unable to use Breakfast Club and Tea-Time club. If you are having any problems paying off these amounts please speak to the school office.
Please can I remind families that pupils should not have fizzy drinks, sweets or chocolate bars in their packed lunches. Thank you for your support.
