Dear Parents and Carers

It has been lovely on the gate this week being able to chat to parents and families and with the weather improving. I have loved hearing the stories from children about how they have celebrated Eid with their families.

Attendance

A special mention for Mr Cottle’s class last week who achieved 100% attendance! It feels like a long time since we have achieved that!

Choir

We are so pleased that so many children want to come to choir on a Friday morning. Please can you make sure that children do not arrive before 8.30 when choir starts. We have had several children dropped at 8.15 without an adult and we do not have staff to supervise them, thank you.

Year 6 SATs

Next week from Monday to Thursday, year 6 children will be taking their SATS in reading, spelling and grammar and maths. These tests take place in the mornings and the children should be really clear about which assessments are on which day. It is really important that they get a good night’s sleep as this will help them think more clearly.

We are offering a SATS Breakfast to all of year 6 and they are welcome to come in to school via the front entrance from 8.30 and go up to the school hall. We are not saying that they are not given breakfast, but I know that it really makes a big difference to their nerves if they are with their friends and staff join them. There is no charge for this.

Queen’s Jubilee

We are very excited that on the last day before half term Friday 27th May, we are going to hold a tea party at lunchtime for the whole school. We are going to make bunting and provide the children with a lovely picnic lunch and cream tea. We would love it if the children could come to school as if they are dressed for a garden party with the queen. There is no need to book a school meal or bring a packed lunch that say as we will be providing this for all children.

School Start Times

Please can I remind everyone that classroom doors open at 8.45 and then school starts at 8.50. We have noticed that a lot of students are arriving just before 9 and are therefore late for school and missing out on the early Bird maths sessions. Thank you.
