Parent Council Update

The meeting will now take place in the Infant hall, not the Juniors, and topics for discussion will also include;

Family Learning – what types of activities would you like to do with your child in school?

Family days – Where would you like to go during the school holidays? Would you like any of these days out to take part at weekends?

Ideas for holiday activities – we have lots of activities during the holidays. Do you have ideas of new activities your children would like to try?

Parent Council

Tracey Gunay will be hosting our second Parent Council on Thursday, 16th October in the hall.  At the request of a number of working parents, this session will be held from 6.30pm – 7.30pm to allow as many parents as possible to participate.  Tracey is employed by the Infant and Junior academies to support our ‘extended schools’ programme. Following on from the infants’ very successful information sessions for parents around phonics and reading at home, the discussion for the meeting will be around other training or information sessions you might find useful.  We hope you will be able to attend.

Home School Association – Hallowe’en Disco

As you know, we frequently ask children to contribute ideas and suggestions for fundraisers, activities and events in school. Therefore, by popular demand, we have arranged a Hallowe’en disco on Friday 24th October (the last day of this half term).

The disco will take place in the new hall, and will be split into sessions according to year groups. In this way we will be able to accommodate all the children over the course of the afternoon/evening.

Timings will be:

Reception              2.30pm – 3.15pm

Years 1 and 2         3.30pm – 4.15pm

Years 3 and 4         4.30pm – 5.15pm

Years 5 and 6         5.30pm – 6.15pm

Children in Reception will be accompanied by school staff and will return to school for the end of the day. Children in Years 1 and 2 will be taken to the disco by school staff and should be collected by parents from the Junior hall (please use the Junior playground door between the old and new halls).

If you do not want your child to go to the disco, please inform the school office.

Junior school children should arrive and leave via the junior playground door between the old and new halls. Please do not bring / send them before their allotted time.

There will be no charge for the disco, as the HSA will meet costs. However, on the day of the disco children are invited to come into school in their own clothes or fancy dress and bring a donation of chocolate! All the donated chocolate will be saved for the chocolate tombola at the Christmas Fair, so please make sure the ‘best before’ date is later than December.

Individual Photos

The individual photos will be going out today, please can we ask that if you wish to purchase one they must be returned to school by Friday 10th October. Anything sent in after this date will incur a charge from the photographers.
