This newsletter is simply to provide parents with a smorgasbord of notices and information for your perusal.
Since May, the office has issued a daily receipt for any money received for school dinners. Often this is sent out via your child. If you do pay for school dinners either directly to the office or through sending the money with your child, please ensure that any receipts are kept for your records and to speed up the dealing of any queries you may have at a later date.
Our friends at Suntrap are having an open day on Saturday 8th October, all the information is on the other side of this letter.
In a similar arrangement to that which we have with Shinkyu Karate, who use our hall on Weds evenings, we are looking into possibly having Fuzion Kickboxing delivering lessons from 4.45pm to 5.50pm on Tuesday evenings. One of their instructors will be giving a demonstration in assembly on Friday and information will be sent out separately.
Student Support Centre
Your child will have received an envelope with information from a company called ‘Student Support Centre’ regarding online learning. The company are an independent commercial organisation and the school is not endorsing their services, instead we have simply agreed to distribute their leaflets, as we have in previous years. Please could you return the slips as promptly as possible please, even if you are ticking the box to say that you are not interested.
A reminder that dogs, of any size, are not allowed into the school grounds. Also, the school is a smoke free site, and this is well respected by parents. To clarify, vaping or e-cigarettes are also not permitted in the school grounds.
The closing date for job vacancies for a cleaner, midday assistants and school crossing patrol officer is Monday 10th October.
Sports Round Up
Finally to finish, a brief round-up of the school’s participation and achievement in inter school sports over the last 12 months. The school competed in most of the borough sport’s competitions. Some of the successes included an individual gold medal in the Year 2 boys’ cross country running coupled with bronze medals for both the girls and boys teams overall. The Year 6 boys’ football team made the final play-off competition. Year 2 and Year 4 gymnastics teams both won silver medals. There was also success in the Quad Kids athletics competitions with the teams from Years 2 and 4 achieving silver medals and the Year 3 team being overall winners. Competitions have just begun for this academic year and hopefully we will continue to build upon this high level of success.
