You will be aware that the new GDPR regulations come into force today. In addition to the HWb permission letter and Pupil Data sheet you have already received, and hopefully returned, we are obliged to collect further permissions with respect to ParentPay communications and also certain websites and applications we use in school. Your child has today brought home a form to be completed and returned to school as soon as possible please – morning Nursery will be given theirs after half-term.
If you require another copy there is one available to download on the school website as ‘GDPR letter’ under the ‘Parents Zone’ menu.
Under the same menu, within ‘Policies’, you can also read our latest Data Protection Policy and Privacy Statement.
NETBALL CLUB FINISHED FOR YEAR
There will be no more netball club after half-term.
PHOTOS AND SOCIAL MEDIA
The recent class photos will be available soon after half-term.
May we take this opportunity to remind you NOT to post photos of any child other than your own on any form of social media. This applies to photographs taken at sports days, concerts and any other school or PTA event.
Some children are not permitted to have their photos taken in school at all, and we ask you to respect this as a safeguarding issue.
JUNIOR EUROVISION SONG CONTEST
If any parents think their child has a super singing voice, why not enter them into the Junior Eurovision Song Contest? If your child is successful they will compete in the national final that will be shown on S4C on 25th November and may even get a chance to work with Connie Fisher who is presenting the show! Follow this link for more information:
KEEPING OUR CHILDREN SAFE
May we remind all parents and carers not to prop open the Minehead Avenue gate? This gate is on a timer to ensure that no-one can enter the school during the day other than through the main Burnham Avenue entrance.
Please help us to maintain our site security at all times.
ATTENDANCE FOR THIS WEEK
Our whole-school attendance figure for this week is a disappointing 90.2%, our target being 97%.
Individual class figures were as follows:
So the best attenders are Miss Eaton’s class in the Foundation Phase and Mrs Boyle’s Y3 class in KS2. Both classes will get ten minutes extra play after half-term.
Thank you for all your sponsor money, the day was great fun
The grand total raised is an impressive £1635!
Used Uniform Sale
As we still need more donations of used uniform, we have decided to hold the uniform sale at the summer fair. So please have a look and bring in all those unused pieces!
Father’s Day Sale
The Father’s Day sale will be held on Friday 15th June, so please start to bring in any Father’s Day donations, socks, toiletries, books, keyrings anything you don’t need anymore. Please bring in as soon as possible so we can get a feel of how many we have. Many thanks.
Summer Fair brochure
Anyone wishing to advertise in this year’s summer fair brochure should contact Fleur Riggs on Fleurriggs@gmail.com. The brochure is distributed to everyone attending the fair and is a good way to promote your business in Sully.
Sports day is always a really fun time watching the children have a great time, and this year we are going to make it even more special!
We are going to have a cake sale at the same time, so hopefully you can sit in the sunshine eating cake, having a soft drink and watch your children race.
PLEASE can we have donations of cakes on Tuesday 19th June
