If your child has school meals, you may have noticed that payment has not been taken correctly this week. This is because the school has been moved to a new meal recording system and there have been teething problems during the transition period – meals taken on Tuesday 14th May have not yet been debited and other days have only today been recorded.
All meals taken this week will be debited from your child’s account in the next few working days, so please anticipate this and ensure that there are sufficient funds in ParentPay to cover them.
The next meeting of the Parent Forum will take place on Thursday, 23rd May, from 2.00pm in the staffroom. All parents are very welcome to attend.
Y6 WW2 PARTY – NOTE DATE CHANGE
Year 6 will be celebrating the end of their WW2 topic by having a party to celebrate Victory in Europe on Thursday 23rd May. Please could the children dress up as a person from WW2 eg an evacuee, land army girl etc., food will be provided.
Please return any orders for class photos by next Thursday, 23rd May. After that, you can order directly with Colorfoto but may incur a postage charge.

ATTENDANCE FOR THE WEEK
Our whole-school attendance figure for this week is only 95.2%, which is below our school target of 96.4%.
Individual class figures were as follows:
Mrs Heaton’s class had the best attendance in the Foundation Phase this week and are now joint leaders with Mr Jarvis’s class! Mrs Sheldon and Mrs Morgan’s Y3 class came out top of KS2 – congratulations! Both classes will have extra play next week and another sticker on the graph…..
Today your child will have brought home a sponsor form for our sponsored bounce, which is taking place next Friday, 24th May.
All the children will get to have a bounce on the bouncy castle and we will count their bounces.
It’s a fun day and the children really enjoy themselves. Please return any sponsor money to your class teacher.
FATHER’S DAY SALE
It’s getting close to Father’s Day and we are busy buying lovely gifts ready for the children to buy for their Dads.
We would really appreciate any donations that you can give to us for this event – socks, ties, books, smellies, sweets, mugs etc….
Please return any donations to your class teacher asap
CLOTHES WEIGH IN
Later in the next half term we are going to do a whole school clothes weigh in. If you have any unwanted clothes, curtains, bedding, please hold on to them and after the half term we will be giving out more information about dates and collection. This could raise a lot of money for our school so please hang on to those unwanted items a little longer!
