You can smell it in the breeze

Look around! Look around! Look around!

June is bustin' out all over.”

ATTENDANCE. We’re on track at 96.2% which is fantastic! The next In It To Win It starts after half term with a reward for each child who attends every day from 4th June to 26th July. We have received a generous donation of 3 children’s bikes as an extra special reward. Names will be drawn out of a hat on the last day.

Thinking of booking a summer holiday?  Can we remind parents that there is no longer any entitlement for family holidays during term-time.  If you are taking your child out of school, a Leave of Absence form, available from main reception, must be completed.  If children are taken out of school without authorisation a penalty notice may be issued and a fine imposed by the Local Authority, not school.  Only a maximum of 5 days can be authorised by the school in exceptional circumstances; family holidays, cheap holidays, birthday celebrations, family events will not be authorised.

UPDATE TELEPHONE NUMBERS. We use Schoolcomms a text messaging service for urgent updates. If you have changed your mobile number recently, please update your details at the school office.

BREAKFAST CLUB. This continues to be FULLY BOOKED each week. It is imperative to book your child’s place IN ADVANCE with a booking form at least the week before a place is required. We have limited space and staffing so cannot accommodate children who have not booked and just turn up on the day. If you no longer require a booked place, please let us know as there is a waiting list.  Parents please also ensure you ACCOMPANY YOUR CHILD into the building in the morning, to ensure their safety.  Thank you.





SUMMER PTA EVENT THURSDAY 11th JULY. Calling all parents, carers and families. Help us make our Summer Carnival Party this year another fabulous success.
