Dear Parents and Carers,
As we start a New Year, I wonder what resolutions or goals we have set ourselves for the coming year. Are we going to try to be fitter? Are we going to be healthier? Are we going to try new things? In our collective worship this week, we have looked at the word ‘resolute’ and according to the Cambridge Dictionary it means – determined in character, action, or ideas. In classes, we were looking at ways we could be determined in character and through our actions to make us happier and living our school vision.
‘I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.’ Ecclesiastes 3:12
Please can we politely remind you again that no dogs are allowed on our school premises, even when carrying smaller dogs. Thank you for your cooperation.
Have a good week!
Mrs Barnes - Assistant Headteacher

Year 5 Ravenous Readers
Well done to this week's Ravenous Readers!
Year 6 organised and completed their own penalty shoot out competition last term to raise money for a new goal for the school field. These monies along with a generous donation from Ascot Football Club meant we could buy a new goal this week! Well done Year 6 - nice work!
We had our PTA meeting on Monday, and the school have asked us to pass on their thanks for all your help and support with our fundraising last term – it really does make a difference.
This term we will be holding a Valentines Raffle on 14th February, with the grand prize being 2 return flights to New York ✈️. Tickets will be sent out in book bags around Friday 28th January so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
The School Council have chosen a theme of Who’s Who? – 'dress up as someone famous' for the mufti day on the last day of term. We are looking forward to seeing all the children in their chosen dress up outfits!
Bake Sales will continue as they did last term, at the end of the day in class bubbles during school hours. Please therefore send your child in with their cake sale money in an envelope marked Bake Sale and your child’s name.
As previously mentioned, our Chairs, Carol Brown and Alison Shukla are stepping down at the end of this school year. If you are interested in taking over the role as PTA Chair, please contact email@example.com, and they will be happy to meet with you to discuss the role further.

Although tempting as we have not been able to travel freely for so long, please do not book holidays or family days during term time. Missing even one or two days learning can be detrimental to your child's learning. Holiday absences will show up as persistent absence which is checked by Ofsted when they visit and monitored closely each half term by the Education Welfare Officer at RBWM. Thank you
