Dear Parent/Guardian,
Welcome back to a new Summer term, we hope you had a good Easter Break.
There are a number of activities and events planned for this term, so please keep a look out for details in the news letters, and emails which we send home.
Secondment
This term I will be supporting Grendon Underwood School for 2 days a week. Their headteacher has started a new headship this term and the new headteacher is due to start in September, so I will take the role as interim headteacher for the summer term. Mrs Kent will be overseeing the school on the days that I am out.
Staffing
We are pleased to welcome Mrs Sue Bennett onto our staff team. She will be working as a lunchtime supervisor and TA support in class 4 every afternoon.
PTA
The disco was a big hit at the end of last term. £325 was raised. Thank you to everyone involved in running it.
Celebration assemblies
The dates planned for the children to share their learning in celebration assembly are as follows Y3/4-20/4/18, Y5/6-27/4/18, Eco-council-4/5/18, Young carers-11/5/18, YR-18/5/18, Y1/2-8/6/18, Y3/4-15/6/18, Y5/6-22/6/18, YR-6/7/18, Y1/2-13/7/18, Y3/4-20/7/18
SATs week
Monday14th May- Thursday 17th May is SATs week. The times and dates for the tests, which will be sat by the pupils in year 6, are set as a national timetable. It is very important that your children attend school that week. The pupils in year 5 will also be sitting assessments at that time. Pupils in year 2 will be having some assessments which are set by the DfE but will be spaced out over the month of May and carried out in an informal way.
Reading Helpers
We would really appreciate some more help with hearing readers across the school. If you, or someone you know, could spare an hour or so of your time each week, please let your child’s class teacher know.
Allergies
Please remember that we have pupils in school who have nut allergies. We would be grateful if you could avoid putting nuts or nut products in your child’s lunchboxes or bringing them into school.
