Good Afternoon Parents & Guardians

We hope that everyone has had a good week and is enjoying the warm weather.

Please can you ensure that all items of clothing are named as now it is getting hotter, it is very hard to match unnamed items of clothing to they're owners!  Please can children also remember to bring their water bottles into school and a hat would also be advisable.

Should you require your child/ren to have sun cream applied, please do this prior to coming into school. Bottles are not able to be brought into school so we are unable to reapply during the day.

  

Holiday Requests

Please be aware that the Local Authority have advised schools not to  authorise any holidays taken during the school term. 

We are aware that families are taking holidays during term time, even though these would be unauthorised.  We would appreciate being informed prior to your departure so we know the children are safe.

 

Entry & Exit Procedures

 To ascertain parental views on our entry and exit procedures, the Governors would like to survey parents.

The link below gives further information and we ask that once you have read through this, please complete the survey.

Jubilee Books 

You may be aware each school child was to receive a book for the Queens Platinum Jubilee.  

As you can imagine this is a huge task to get them delivered to all schools! 

We have been informed that we should receive them by the end of the school term and once we have, they will be handed out.

 

Ukefest

If your child is attending the Ukefest and you have not yet paid your £1 towards the cost of the coach, please can we ask that you do this as soon as possible.   

Please also ensure the collection arrangements form is completed no later than Monday 20th June via the link sent to parents on Wednesday.

 

 Picatale

We hope that the children have enjoyed using Picatale.  Please remember, this does not replace the existing books that the children bring home. 

Picatale is a library online for children to enjoy and develop their love of reading.

Please see link below for more information.

Severn Hospice Monkmoor

The Severn Hospice shop in Monkmoor has items of preloved uniform to purchase should you require any additional items of clothing.

They will also take donations of any uniform that your child/ren has grown out of - just pop into the shop to drop them off!

We are pleased that many children have had books from the shop - keep up the good work and don't forget to visit over the holidays for more books and to get your loyalty card stamped!

 

PSHE Lessons 

 As you may know, we are using a new PSHE programme in school.  During this term, the topics will be ' Relationships' and 'Changes'.  These topics will involve discussions about family, friendships and the body.  In the KS2 classes, this will also begin preparing them for Sexual Health Education.
