Thank you all for supporting Children in Need. This is an incredibly important charity and every contribution makes a big difference – we raised over £300!!
We had our first Pride Assembly with invited carers and parents on Friday, it was lovely to celebrate the positive news of your child’s progress with you, as well as your child.
Mrs So would like to remind you about the current reading competition, this was emailed out last week to you.
Your children could read:
Your school reading book, a book from the reading corner, a magazine, a library book or a book from home
Try out poetry, fiction or non-fiction
Support your child by listening to them read, discussing their books and helping them to log their reading on ’Go Read/Boom Reader’ (our online reading diary.)
The class with the highest average will win a collection of books for their class reading corner. All students who have read 10 times or more over the two week competition time will be entered into a prize raffle to win books too!
Class winners for last week: 3/4C (they will win a selection of books for their book corner)
Top readers of the school: Reece (3/4C) and Asveena (5/6D)
The competition continues until Friday 2nd December. More prizes to win!

As with all medicines, can you make sure medicated cough sweets – Strepsils etc are handed into the office and not left with your child to look after.

Wednesday – Vistery Partnership are landscaping the land at the front gates – weather permitting.
Friday – Assembly. Please remember to send in details if your child has achieved/ completed things outside of school for our Friday celebration assembly. The students love sharing with us what they have been doing.
Attendance and Punctuality
School gates will close promptly at 8.45am, latecomers will have to enter the school by the main gate. Registers close at 8.55am. A reminder that the official end of the school day is 3.25pm. This means that once ready, your children start to leave their classrooms at 3.15pm. Please plan this into any arrangements you are making for after school.
Requests for Leave of Absence During Term Time
Acting under Government guidance, schools will not grant leave of absence during term time unless there are extreme extenuating circumstances. The Department of Education does not consider wanting to go on holiday an extreme mitigating circumstance.
If you have changed your contact details, email, telephone or home address that you must let the school office know so that if and when we need to get hold of you, we can do it successfully.
We ask that you ensure that your Pay360 accounts are up to date and not in arrears. Your account can be set up to alert you of low balances to ensure that debt doesn’t occur. Unpaid meal debts will be followed up and if your account is in arrears of more than £7.50, we will ask that your child brings a packed lunch until the debt is cleared. Please call the office if this is going to be an issue for you. Here’s the link PAY360
