Weekly Bulletin 05/07/24

Whole School Attendance: 84.4% - Remember to report absences to the school office by 9:00am

Total Lates this week:  73 late marks – Children arriving after 8:45am will be marked as late and parents will be asked to sign children in via the screen in the school office. If you are struggling to get your child to school on time or have concerns about your child being late, our PFSA Mrs Bedford will be available most mornings to offer support.

 

Whole School:

  • Did you know? A child who is an engaged reader provides themselves with self-generated learning opportunities that can be equivalent to several years of education.

 

  • Please be mindful when parking around the school and remain polite when speaking with our neighbours. There is NO stopping on the zigzags outside the school gate, this is to keep your children safe.

 

  • Please ensure your child has sun cream applied before school, has a sun hat and a drink.

 

  • We want to say a big thank you to the year 1 parents for remaining so calm and patient whilst waiting for their children on Thursday after they got back late due to the M5 closure.

 

  • Next Thursday is careers day where all students will be exploring different careers through their learning for the day.
