Message from Miss Bishop

We have had a very exciting week interviewing candidates for the two Class Teacher vacancies and the Higher Level Teaching Assistant vacancy. We will be writing shortly to advise all parents / carers of the appointments made.

After School Clubs

The After School Clubs will continue through term 4 as usual. An email will be sent to all families with full information about the activities. The club organisers are independent of the school so any queries, concerns and payments should be made directly to them (we are happy to take the payments on behalf of the Clubs providing cheques are made out to the organiser and are in sealed envelopes).

SATs dates

During May and June Years 2 and 6 will sit SATs. On different days throughout May, Year 2 pupils will sit their tests. Monday 9th May sees the start of SATs week for Year 6 pupils. Tuesday 7th June sees the start of SATs Science Sampling tests (two weeks). Monday 13th June sees the start for one week of Phonics screening checks for Year 1 pupils.

Please bear these important weeks in mind when making medical appointments or other necessary appointments for your children.

Active Kids Sainsbury’s Vouchers

We’d love your active kids vouchers! We are currently collecting the active kids vouchers provided by Sainsbury’s here in school. We are looking to collect as many vouchers as possible to be able to buy new sports and cooking equipment. We are collecting the vouchers from now until 8th July. There is a collection box in reception.

Office Information

Mrs Patey will be away from the office next week - w/c 8th February. Mrs Fuller and Mrs Millican (the Finance Officer) will be covering throughout the week.

However, there will be times when the office will be unattended. There is a red communication book on the desk for any messages and requests. We thank you in advance for your patience.
