EXTRA ‘OLIVER’ TICKETS

There are still tickets remaining for the performances of ‘Oliver’.  There are plenty for the Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning events, but very few are left for Wednesday evening.

 

Your child has brought home a slip today on which you can apply for extra tickets from Monday.  They will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis but we will do our best to accommodate everyone’s requests.  Please send your completed slip and money in a clearly-labelled, sealed envelope.

 

HANSEL & GRETEL

Next Wednesday all the KS2 children are going to see ‘Hansel and Gretel’ at The Gate.  Please send your child in with a packed lunch on that day.

 

HEAD LICE

When a case of head lice is reported in a class, the school sends a note to inform all parents in that year group.  We would be grateful if the parents of every child who brings home a note could check their child that evening to try to contain the outbreak.

 

BREAKFAST CLUB

We are experiencing a number of children arriving at Breakfast Club without an adult accompanying them.  Please could parents accompany children up to the Breakfast Club door to ensure the safe arrival of their children.  Many thanks for your understanding.

 

GOVERNING BODY ANNUAL REPORT TO PARENTS

The school’s Governing Body has published its 2016-2017 annual report to parents which can be found on our website under ‘About Us’.

 

SCHOOL DINNER CHOICES

Some parents have been concerned that their child appears to be choosing the baguette option every day.  We have queried this with the kitchen staff and they tell us that this is a glitch on their computer system, which they are currently unable to override.

 

If you are concerned, please call the office who will be able to check their paper records and tell you what your child has been choosing each day.
