Our week will begin with an assembly on Monday morning for children from Years 1-6, which all parents are invited to join us for. Throughout the week, the role that respect and choices that we make have in relation to how we treat others will be explored and discussed. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 12th November at 9.00am.

SCHOOL DINNER MONEY
The cost of a school dinner has risen by 5p a day to £2.25 per day (£11.25 per week).
Please may we remind parents that dinner money needs to be paid on the morning your child requires a dinner, no later than 9.30am – we are not able to supply a dinner to those who have not paid in time – thank you.
What a great opportunity for team work the recent snow brought. At break time, we were able to trek down onto the field and explore our very own arctic environment.
The children (and adults!) had a wonderful time working and playing together, seeing who could build the biggest snow ball and then turn it into a snow man.
Thank you Fiona, in the Kitchen, for the carrots. Without those, our snowmen would have had no noses.
How does a snow man smell without a nose?
Still terrible! Boom Boom!
We are currently undertaking our half termly attendance audit, this looks at individual children’s attendance, patterns of absence and any other relevant information.
Where your child’s attendance is causing a concern, your child’s class teacher will be asking to meet with you over the next few weeks to further discuss your child’s pattern of attendance.
What your child’s class teacher is specifically tasked with detailing for you is the detrimental impact repeat absences has on your child’s learning and progress, this is an aspect of school provision which is inspected by Ofsted and action taken by the Local Authority where absence is having a detrimental impact on the progress.
Please can we also remind parents that it is your responsibility to make contact with the school when your child is absent providing the reasons for their absence. In the event that the school does not hear from a parent regarding the absence of their child the absence is recorded as ‘unauthorised’. As part of our duty of care for all children, a Safeguarding concern is triggered where there are repeat occurrences of parents not making contact with the school.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s attendance, please ask to speak with Mrs Galling.
