New Midday Supervisors
We are excited to welcome two new midday supervisors! Mrs Ryalls and Mrs Kaushal. Together they bring a wealth of experience of working with children, including in an afterschool club setting. They have been with us now for a couple of weeks, have already built great relationships with our children, and have shown they are an asset to the midday team.
Class 8 Helpers
Parent Helpers are needed for Class 8! If you are able to volunteer for the Conkers trip on Tuesday 2nd July, please let Miss Bates know. It is vital we have enough adults on the day to ensure the trip is able to go ahead. We appreciate any help and support offered by parents! If you wish to make your payment for the trip please go to your ParentPay account, https://www.parentpay.com/
Red Visitor Lanyards
If anyone has accidentally taken home a red visitor lanyard, please can this be returned to the school office. We now only have one lanyard left in school. It is essential we are able to give them out to the correct visitors to ensure all staff recognise who is in school and for what reason. This is to maintain the safety of everyone within the building.
Year 2 Residential Visit to Beaumanor
Everyone should have received their letter for the residential. We appreciate that some parents/carers may be unsure about sending their child and so there will be an information evening that will take place in the school hall on Wednesday 5th June at 6pm. This will give you lots of information about how we organise this visit and an opportunity to ask questions and set your mind at rest. Please return all consent forms to school where appropriate, this includes volunteers, child permission slip and medical form.
Year 2 Puppets
Parent helpers for Year 2. The children will be sewing in the afternoon of the week beginning the 20th May. If you are available to help in class, please speak to the class teacher before coming, to ensure they know to expect you. Thank you!
Website Leaflets and Community Page
We have a wide range of leaflets in the reception area at school offering extra-curricular activities, special offers at some attractions and holiday clubs. Please have a look. We have added some information to our Community Page as well:
In response to feedback from parents/carers, we have set as many dates as possible for the year ahead. As far as possible, we will try to honour these dates. However, please be aware that dates may have to be changed due to circumstances outside our control.
