We break up for the half term break this Friday and return the first Monday back which is February 24th. I hope you all manage to have a restful break and a time together as a family. Let’s hope the wet and windy weather breaks and we get some spring sunshine. The children have worked so hard this term despite the rumble of colds, coughs and upset tummies we have had.
Thank you to the PTA for a super Valentine disco this Monday – great fun was had by all.
Can I also remind you all to use the car park carefully. Please do not sit in your cars with the engine running. The disabled bays at the front gate are not to be used for drop off and must be kept clear. We have a few parent/carers who need to use these bays and so need to keep them free. Please try to park without wasting space so we can all fit in -Thank you. If you are interested in starting a car share we might be able to help. See Donna Young if you are keen.
Please can I remind you all to make sure the children have coats and gloves in school for the rest of the term. I am sure we will continue to have some cold weather to enjoy. Remember to check Spire FM’s Snow pages to see if the school is closed or open if we have some significant snowy days.
Arriving at school
We still have some children arriving late. Please can you make sure they are ready to join the rest of the school by 8.40am so we can start off the day ready to go. We are expected to report on the number of late comers and ensure that every child has the same chances by starting the day at the same time.
Speaking to teachers
Please can I remind you to avoid trying to talk to teachers first thing in the mornings – please make a mutually convenient appointment. Catching staff for a chat first thing has led to some classes waiting a long time to get down to class when it’s rather cold and wet. You can always leave a message at reception.
