September Week 2

Friday 16th September

Challenge Clubs

Thank you to all the parents/carers who were able to come to our 'Meet the Teacher' sessions. Impact meetings giving more details about the subjects and methods of teaching will be scheduled throughout the year. However, please do not hesitate to ask if you require more information about the Curriculum.

As you can see teachers have started to add information about homework in the newsletter and this will be followed later in the term by Brain Boosters.

We are also going to be re-starting Saturday School and Challenge Clubs in the mornings and afternoons. We are very fortunate to have funding that we can allocate to providing these services, so please ensure that pupils identified for this additional teaching attend each session.

Pupils not included in these classes will be supported through interventions and classroom support timetabled during the school day.

Finally, a very special thank you goes to Mrs Kelly for all the work she does with the extended services. The Breakfast and After School Clubs are very popular and she works hard to ensure that pupils who miss out on their first choice go to the top of the list in the next round of allocating places.


Library News


We are very lucky to have a well-stocked library and the children have been enjoying our books, magazines and newspapers during their library times. Please can we ask you not to bring in anymore donations for the moment as we are still sorting through the previous donations. Thank you.

When does my child need to be in school?

Your child should be in the playground at 8.40am at the latest for a soft start and come into school at 8.50am at the latest. For safeguarding purposes, the playground gates which give access to classrooms will be locked at 8.55am. If you arrive at school after this time you must take your child to the main entrance and notify the office staff. The office staff record the lateness and then children will be directed to their classroom. This lateness will be recorded in your child/ren’s end of year report. Please note that parents are not permitted to accompany their child to their classroom from this time.

What happens if my child is late?

Registration finishes at 9.00am. If your child arrives at school after this time, they will be marked late.

If your child arrives at school after 9.15am, they will be marked as an unauthorised late (which counts as an unauthorised absence for the entire morning session).
