Dear Parents and Carers,
Over the past week the mornings have become noticeably lighter, the days have started to get longer and some evenings I have even been able to leave school while there has still been a glimmer of daylight. Once we return to school after half term, spring will be well on its way. Despite this, the weather is still very cold at the moment; there have been some days this week when the outside temperature has struggled to rise. I would like to ask all parents to support us by sending their child to school with a warm coat. We try to encourage the children to wear their coats at break-times and it can be difficult when some of the older children are reluctant to comply with this, unfortunately this sets a poor example for the children in the younger year groups.
As half-term approaches, there are some very important dates for your diary. On Friday 17th February, the BSA is holding a Valentine’s Disco for the children; the school disco is always an enjoyable event giving the children an opportunity to socialise with each other as part of their wider experience of school life. This is also the start of our half-term holiday, the children return to school on Tuesday 28th February. Please note that Monday 27th February is an INSET day. We also have our Parent Consultation Evenings for the Spring Term scheduled for Wednesday 8th March and Thursday 9th March, booking sheets for appointments will be available in the school office from Tuesday 28th February.
This coming week will be the final week of FAB club and Breakfast Club to be run by the school. Amanda, Louise and Debs are inviting all of the children that have attended FAB to join them in a ‘FAB Club’ party on Wednesday 15th February from 4.30pm – 5.30pm. We would like as many children that use FAB as possible, to be able to join in (even if they will not be in FAB that day). If your child is not using FAB on Wednesday, please collect them from school as normal and they can return for the party at 4.30pm. The event is free of charge.
I would like to reassure parents that the privately run Breakfast Club and After-School provision available after half-term through the Pre-School will be suitable for children up to and including 11 years of age. There will be an exciting range of activities as well as the free choice of games and play that the children have been used to. Please contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns.
