School Council Elections

Each class will be holding their School Council elections on Tuesday next week (18th September). Reception class hold their elections a bit later in the year when the children have settled in. The newly elected council members will have their first meeting in the very near future.

Parent Governor Vacancy

We have a Parent Governor vacancy at the moment. You should have received a letter containing information on how to apply. If you wish to become a Parent Governor please collect an application form from the school office no later than Friday 21st September. The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 5th October.

New Course for Parents/Carers

There will be a new course running for parents and carers on Saturdays at the school beginning on 3rd November. The course is aimed at parents/carers of children aged 8 to 10 years and will support parents in developing positive strategies for dealing with some of those difficult moments we all experience with our children. If you would like to find out more and whether this is the course for you then please come along to a coffee morning on Wednesday 26th September in the Family room. You can drop in for a chat about the course any time between 9.00 and 10.30 am. There will be posters up in the school and letters sent home with all children in Years 4, 5 and 6 with further information.

Emergency Contact List

You should find attached to this newsletter an emergency contact form for you to complete and return to the office. Please ensure you return the completed form as soon as possible as we need to update our files.

Water Problems!

Yet again we are dealing with another leak. We have had to switch off the hot water supply and are currently only able to use cold water. This has been fine for the rest of the school but has affected the kitchen. As a result today children having school dinners had to have sandwiches. I have apologised to the children who were kind and understanding when I told them there would be no chips today. I would also like to apologise to you on behalf of the kitchen staff. We hope to have the problem resolved by Monday.

After School Care

If you require your child to be cared for after school please ask for information at the office on the After School Clubs that pick up from Middle Street. I have also been given information about an after school play worker who can offer school pick up and baby sitting in the Southover area. You can contact Rosana on Tel: 07729876085. I am not able to vouch for this person and is therefore your responsibility to ensure this person has been CRB checked, has the relevant references and training and is the right person to care for your child.

Watch Found

A watch has been found in the Year 1 and 2 shared area. Please ask at the office if you have recently lost a watch.
