What a busy term! The children have worked so hard and they are all definitely ready for a break and some quality, festive time at home. Enjoy!
Thank you for all your support over this term and for making our extra -curricular and out of school activities so much fun. Our Firework evening and Christmas bazaar went so well and raised nearly £2500!
Fantastic PTA – thank you!
Happy Ever Happy
The children have been such stars, the Christmas shows were superb, as usual. Well done to everyone who helped to make them such a success and thank you to the staff who put so much into helping with them. It’s a tricky decision to hold them during the day or in the evenings. We chose the evenings so that as many parents can come without having to take time off work but that relies on families supporting the shows and bringing children back so that we have a full house for each night’s audience to enjoy. Thank you for your support.
Back to School
Just to remind you that we return back to school on Monday 6th January. Please can you make sure that you drop children off at 8.30am and not before unless you are able to stay and supervise your child on the top playground. To add to that, talking to class teachers is very hard for us first thing in the morning unless it is an emergency. Please catch us after school or book a mutually convenient appointment. A few pupils are arriving to school late so please make sure you are on time as this disrupts the start of the day for all the class. Lessons are due to start at 8.45am.
Collection from school
At the end of the day the children need to be collected from the lower playground if they are in Lake, Lower Woodford, Netton, Wilsford Class and Durnford Children and children in Upper Woodford and Salterton need to be collected from their classrooms – we let children go if we can see a parents outside the classrooms or waiting at the gate. The older children should not be outside of school unless you are there. They need to return to reception to wait where we know they are safe.
As we approach the very coldest time of the year please can you make sure children arrive at school with coat so we can make the most of going outside. It is often a good idea to make sure they have hats, gloves and a scarf too. Please make sure these are labelled.
Drive Carefully please
Please drive carefully through the village and in the car park especially when the weather is bad. The car park can get especially icy in the very cold weather. A few of our local families often get drenched by passing vehicles too, so please watch out for them in the rain. We have asked our local police link to visit our carpark from time to time at the busiest times to make sure people are not driving too fast and keeping us all safe.
The staff and governors are so worried about an accident waiting to happen that they are now writing to parents that are spotted ignoring our pleas to keep to the speed restriction. Please don’t be someone that receives one of these letters.
If we have snow then please remember to check the Spire FM website or live show on the radio for school closure announcements.
Bags2School Collection – Thank you all for the donations of clothing etc. which raised £164 for the PTA.
I would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you all in 2020!
