PLAYLEADER BOOK SALE
As part of our playleader project this year the team are keen to raise some funds to enable them to buy some indoor games for them to use with children during lunchtimes. With this in mind they have hatched a plan to hold a book sale which will be taking place at 3.15pm on Tuesday 5th November. They would welcome donations of books in good condition to support the sale. These could be children’s books, adult books, fiction or non-fiction and should be given to learning leaders or Mrs Louise. The team would also love to see you on the afternoon of their sale – make a note in your diary!
CAKE SALE – WEDNESDAY 16TH OCTOBER
The group of parents who meet weekly on a Tuesday morning are planning a cake sale on Wednesday at the end of the school day. A paper plate requesting whatever cake-style contributions, home-made or not, people are able to offer has now been sent home with the children. Funds raised will be used to support the school in the same way as those raised by school fetes, discos and other events.
Don’t forget, if you enjoy coffee, cake and a chat, feel free to join the group that get together in ‘EAT’ every Tuesday morning from 9.00am.
School Uniform too small? Donate it to us!
So often children grow out of school shirts, skirts, jumpers and cardigans before they are worn out. If you have any school uniform that is in good condition and no longer being worn, please bring it into us and leave it at the reception desk. We will happily make sure that it is used again, and at the same time raise funds for the school.
On a similar note, if there is uniform that you need don’t hesitate to check out our rail in the HUB – we only offer clothes in good condition so it’s always worth a look before spending more than you need!
Flu Vaccinations – VIRGIN CARE & Haytor View working together
This year, children in Reception, Year 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are being offered flu vaccinations, therefore we have been working together with Virgin Care to enable them to manage this in a straightforward way (the vaccination being provided is a nasal spray).
Delivery of the programme will run from October to December 2019 and will take place on the school site.
An information pack will be sent home to those children in Reception, Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 shortly and electronic parental consent will need to be given on the secure consent portal – details will be provided in the information pack.
We look forward to supporting Virgin Care help you to keep your children fit & healthy over the winter months.
MORNING ROUTINES –
In order to support working arrangements within the school ahead of the site opening each morning, gates into the courtyard and from Sandringham Road will now not be opened before 8.25am. For those early risers among you this may mean a slight change in routine so that you do not find yourselves waiting at the school gates. Many thanks for your support with this.
