Newsletter – May Week 4

Dear Parents / Carers,

The children have had such a fun day today with our ‘Be yourself always’ day.  It’s been very bright and the children have had lots of fun.  Along with this, you have managed to raise £284.50 for MIND UK who are helping so many people in the current climate.  Thank you so much for this.  I know that every penny helps.

Maypole dancing

The children have also taken part in Maypole dancing today.  They have learnt routines and created some lovely patterns with the ribbons.  There’s been a lot of laughing and wonderful team spirit shown by everyone.  Our Chief Education Officer, Nick Lowry has been into school to observe the children’s learning as well as watching the Maypole dancing. 

School Council

The school council met on Monday to discuss the Feedback Policy.  This is the policy which staff follow when giving feedback to pieces of work in any subject.  The children made lots of sensible comments and gave some really useful thoughts on how staff could give them feedback on their work.  These have all been included in the policy.  It’s now being shared with staff to try out the suggestions.

Thank you to the school council for their mature approach to this important policy.

Cars on Abbots Way

Please can I ask that if you are waiting in your car, you turn off your engine.  Apart from the pollution which this causes, we have some very worried families who have to walk through the fumes to get to and from school.  Vehicle fumes do irritate and cause other health problems with children and adults.  Thank you for your support with this.

Fire Drill On Tuesday, we had a fire drill.  The children were very sensible and quick at exiting the building.  Every child followed the rules and listened carefully to instructions.

Just a reminder that tomorrow is an INSET day.  School is closed except for Small & Tall.  They are open for childcare tomorrow and over half term.

Covid reminder from the Government Contact tracing over May half-term
If your child develops symptoms more than 2 days after being in school, please take your child for a test.  The school does not need to be informed.
If your child develops symptoms within 2 days of being in school, please contact myself or Mrs Dean as we will have to advise contacts of the child to self-isolate.

Have a lovely half term.  I hope the weather is better than what it has been.  Take care and keep safe.  We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 7th June.

Thank you for your continuing support.
