Welcome back to school and Happy New Year to all our staff, parents/carers, governors and of course our Unity Schools Partnership (USP) colleagues.
We hope the children (and yourselves) have had an enjoyable festive season and are fully rested and ready to learn lots more in the 2019 Spring term.
Several things happen at this time of year;
15th January – deadline for submission of applications for children starting school in September 2019 – information regarding wrap-around care from third party providers can be found here.
The school choir will sing at the O2 this term, you’ll receive information directly if your child will be attending as part of the choir.
Parents evening will take place on Thursday 28th February and Tuesday 5th March.
Some year 5 and 6 pupils will be off to Switzerland to take part in the Essex Schools Ski Course – they are really looking forward to this!
Reminders for parents;
Children in year 3-6 can bring in a healthy snack for morning break (Foundation, year 1 and 2 children receive fruit and vegetables to snack on free of charge) – healthy snacks include fruit, vegetables, yoghurt or raisins for instance… Nuts are never allowed in school! This ensures children with allergies are kept safe… On Fridays, the children are allowed to bring in an ‘unhealthy’ snack.
Lunch money must be paid in advance. Please ensure your child’s lunch money account is monitored and there are sufficient funds to cover their school meals.
The school, along with many other schools, has faced even more budget cuts this academic year. If you can spare a small amount of money each month, we would be very grateful for any donations. Please find a donation form here. Some parents are already donating between £1 and £5 per month, which is wonderful! This money is being set aside to directly support the children’s learning with classroom resources and Mrs Nicholls directly oversees the spending of these funds. We are also working on being able to claim gift aid on these donations very soon.
The cross-country running competition and tag rugby events also occur in the Spring term… keep your eyes out for further information on these.
