Headteacher’s Comments

As part of our whole school topic this term ‘A Diamond Olympics’, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant visited the school to talk about the Royal Family.  Today I received a letter from him praising the children.  It is always nice to hear about the good things we do at the school, especially from visitors.  A copy of his letter is printed on the back of this newsletter.

Whole School Photograph

As last year, at the end of our visit on Tuesday we had a whole school photograph taken (copy can be seen in the school foyer).  If you would like to purchase the photograph (9” by 6”), please return the slip at the bottom of the page.  The cost is £3.

Special Lunch

Next Week’s Special Lunch (Tuesday 15 May) is celebrating ‘USA’ cuisine.  Children will have a choice of Beef Burger with Fries or Veggie Burger and Fries, mixed salad with a ranch dressing and American Pancakes with maple syrup.

Inappropriate Language

A number of teachers have again spoken to me about the use of inappropriate language by children, for example swearing and use of sexual terms.  Please be careful what internet websites, television programmes, DVDs and computer games your child is exposed to.  Also, if you do hear your child repeating anything inappropriate, please reinforce that it is unacceptable.  I would appreciate your support in this matter.

Lost Key

A key has been found on the playground.  Please contact the office for more details.

Year 6 SATs

Good luck to all the Year 6 pupils sitting their SATs next week.  Please make sure all children have a good night sleep, eat breakfast and are in school in plenty of time.
