Almost at the end of term 4! All in all this has been a rather busy term. The children have worked really hard and deserve a well-earned break. Easter is fairly late this year which means the next term is shorter. We return to school on Tuesday 23rd April.
This week is the lead up to the school’s celebration of Easter. We had a fantastic Easter workshop on Tuesday. Our Easter walk and Easter egg hunt is on Thursday and we would welcome help then too. This is a non-uniform day, please wear woollies and wellies/trainers.
Then on Friday we welcome you to join us all in church at 2pm for our Easter service.
We have taken part in a number of sporting festivals and tournaments this term and the children have played extremely well. We have managed to get through to 5 County finals!!! On top of this our school has been particularly noted as one where the children have shown outstanding behaviour and resilience. Well done!
There have been a few outbreaks of head lice recently. Please check your child/children and take the appropriate action if you find any little friends!
A couple of people have said that they are concerned about the use of plastics when buying Red Noses – if you feel passionate about this then please contact the charity direct so they can think of a new way to raise funds on the day.
Late arriving to school
A few people are arriving a little late in the morning and driving rather too fast into the car park. Some people have been parking on the pavement too. Please be careful and vigilant for little ones. Another thank you to all of you who are avoiding parking on the field, it has been noted. If you do find yourself stuck for space then please just be patient. We will make sure pupils are kept safe until you are here to collect them. Please let us know if you are interested in using the school bus or if you would like to car share.
We have received a letter from the Local Authority congratulating us on our school’s overall performance in the 2018 assessments. It says:
I would, therefore, like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on the recently validated outcomes achieved by your pupils in 2018, which are amongst the best primary schools in Wiltshire.
Well done to all our staff and pupils for working so hard in achieving this recognition.
School Meals charge
I am afraid that the school will need to increase the cost of a school lunch. We have kept the charge of £2.20 for quite a while but are struggling to make it match the cost of providing the meal. From April 23rd the cost of a meal with go up to £2.30. I am sure Mrs. Ringwood and her team will continue to make delicious meals for your children.
Annual Service of Baptism, Admission to Communion and Confirmation
We will be sending out an invitation to take part in our baptism, admission to communion and confirmation (Year 6 only) classes in the summer term. Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to take part as these sessions will be starting soon after we start back.
NO dogs on the school site
Please could I remind you that dogs cannot come into school or on any of the fields enclosed by the school.
NO NUT policy in school
Can I also please remind you that we do have a strict NO NUT policy in school as some children do have a severe nut allergy, and this is in line with our Health and Safety Policy. Please do not send nuts or food containing nuts for cake sales, cake raffle or packed lunches.
I hope you all have a super Easter break with family and friends. Take care and see you again for the start of the summer term.
