IMPORTANT—CURRICULUM ASSESSMENT AFTER SCHOOL EVENT FOR PARENTS

There will be a meeting for parents on Tuesday, 3rd November at 3.30pm in the school to explain the new way of how children’s progress will be assessed. Please attend as we will be using the information provided to discuss your children’s learning with you at parents’ evenings later in the term.

Harvest Festival

Our annual Harvest Festival will be held on Friday 16th October in Pensford Memorial Hall. For harvest this year we will be supporting The Bath Food Bank which is a project seeded by the Trussell Trust (see their website for more information http://www.trusselltrust.org/). This is a charity trying to address social need within the community through practical help and support.

Pensford school has set up a food bank here for Harvest Festival. We therefore invite you to help by bringing into school, any donation of food from the list provided by The Trust. Attached to this newsletter is a ‘shopping list’ from the Bath Food Bank to help you decide what to donate.

This month Bath Food Bank is short of UHT/dried milk, chocolate, biscuits, instant noodles, pasta sauce, tea bags, rice pudding and instant coffee.

Thank you very much for your support in helping this very worthwhile charity. Please bring in donations of food by Thursday 15th October. Quote from their website “Your gifts of food, time or funds help stop local people going hungry. We couldn’t do what we do without you.”

Nepal Appeal

Back in May, the children raised £30 by having a non-uniform day and a cake sale. We have just received a letter from Save The Children thanking everyone for their efforts.

We’re collecting!

Flora in partnership with Tesco are running a Tubs4Tablets campaign and so please collect your Flora labels and bring them into school. Every 50 tokens collected turns into a Samsung Galaxy Tab  for the school! It’s magic!

Parents’ Council

The first meeting of the year is to be held on Wednesday 21st October at 3.20pm and please contact Tracey King, Tracy Jones, Charlotte Tremlett if you want to pass on any compliments or complaints.

We’d like to say thank you to the local people who have responded to our plea for Reading Helpers and we will soon be adding Mrs Tattersall, Mrs Ware and Mrs Young to our list of volunteers who kindly give us some of their valuable free time to help the children and the teachers. Special thank you to Mrs Phillips who for many years, has been coming in to hear the children read on Monday mornings.
