Headteacher’s Comments

We welcomed our 250th child this week when Brendan Crosbie joined us today.  We now have 3 out of 8 classes full!

 

I would like to congratulate Year 6 on a superb Remembrance Service today.  I hope everyone will observe the 2 minutes silence at 11am on Sunday.

Club Español

Mrs May is starting her popular Spanish Club again.  It will start on Monday 12 November at 8:15am.  It is free and open to all years.  It will run on 12, 19 and 26 November and 3 and 10 December.

Book Fair

We are selling books and stationery from the ‘Travelling Books’ Company; a perfect time for presents and stocking fillers!  Books will be on sale during the two Pupil Progress Meetings (Wed 14 November 3:30-5:30pm and Thurs 15 November 5:00-7:00pm) and every morning for a week before school starts in Breakfast Bar from Wed 14th November.  Your child should be bringing a separate leaflet home.

Pupil Progress Meetings

Our Pupil Progress Meetings for parents will be spread over two days; Wednesday 14 November 2012 (3:30pm-6:00pm) and Thursday 15 November 2012 (5:00pm- 7:30pm).  Please note this is different than previously published.

 

If you haven’t already done so, in order for appointments to be arranged, will you please complete the slip overleaf and return it to your child’s class teacher by Monday 12 November.  We will then do our best to give you interviews at appropriate times.

Parking

Some of you may have noticed that we have featured in the local paper regarding parking around the school.  I would like to ask parents to park considerately along Honey Lane and Shernbrook Road.

We have a baby!

There was little rest for Mrs Pughsley as Poppy Grace Violet Pughsley was born last Thursday weighing in 5lb 1oz.  Mother and baby are doing well.  I am sure you would like to join me in congratulating Mr and Mrs Pughsley.
