School Health – Flu Vaccination Project – Vaccinations take place on Thursday 17 October. Please ensure your child is in school on this day as we will be unable to reschedule any missed vaccinations. Thank you.

PTA Hallowe’en Disco – The disco is taking place on Monday 28 October. As in previous years Year 1 – 3 disco and party games will take place from 6.15 – 7.15pm, while the Year 4 – 7 disco/party will take place from 7.30 – 9.00pm. All children who attend MUST be accompanied to and collected from the school foyer. Fancy dress is optional.

Parent Interviews – will be taking place for Year 4 – 7 children on Tuesday 22, Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 October. Appointments for these interviews will be sent home this week. Year 1 – 3 children’s parent interviews will take place at the beginning of February 2020.

Car Parking – This continues to be a challenge. I’ve spoken to teachers to ensure all pupils leave school promptly and will continue to be in the car park when possible. Everyone’s understanding and patience is required. Please remember two cars parked badly can block the entire car park!

Photographs – It is planned that all children will have their photographs taken on Monday 18 & Tuesday 19 November. As in previous years, parents will have the opportunity to have family shots taken on the evening of Monday 18 November ~ more details to follow later.

Charity Fundraiser – Our chosen charity this year is the NSPCC and Children’s Heartbeat Trust. We will be holding a full day sports themed Fundraiser on Tuesday 29 October – children should wear sports clothes to school on the day.

Conkers – Please remember that we are a NUT FREE school. Conkers and Acorns are nuts and should not be sent into school. Thanks!

Lost Property – Already this year we have had a number of items of lost property. We have been unable to return these to the children as they have not been labelled or had names written on them. This is an ongoing problem and your help in rectifying it is appreciated.
