Headteachers' Weekly Update

Number 10 - 16th November 2018 

As the weather has now well and truly changed please make sure children always have a coat in school.

Preparations for the PTA Christmas Fair are well underway with so many of you dedicating your time to help raise money for the school while giving the children a fun afternoon. If you haven’t signed up for a slot yet to supervise a stall for 30 minutes or more, please do so as soon as you can. On pages 3 and 4, Mrs Williamson has provided a summary of all the stalls and timings for the fair and a list of things you can help to provide if possible. There’ll be a great selection of stalls from external suppliers too so there’ll be plenty of opportunity to get some Christmas shopping in.

Many thanks to everyone for coming along to Parents’ Evening. We hope you found it beneficial. If you didn’t manage to make a meeting please do get in touch to arrange to see your child’s class teacher.

The Police Visit Reception Class!

Reception were delighted on Monday with a visit from our local police force. PC Melita and PC James came and talked to Reception about 'How the police help us'. It was a great visit, with the police talking about who you should contact in an emergency and telling the children they should know their addresses in case of an emergency. The highlight was definitely the chance to sit in the Police car, and the blue flashing lights had everyone smiling. Reception class children behaved beautifully and it was a great morning.

Disabled Parking Space

We do have a blue badge holder who needs to use the disabled parking bay on Station Road but is never able to do so because cars are always parked in it! Please do not use the disabled bay unless you can display a Blue Badge. Many thanks for your consideration.

Breakfast Club


As Breakfast Club becomes busier we do require the full 24 hours notice for ad hoc bookings to make sure that we have time to put appropriate staffing in place. Lately children are turning up to Breakfast Club without booking in at all and this affects our ability to safeguard all the children who are at Breakfast Club and have booked ahead.
