Newsletter 20 November

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are sure many of you are aware of a number of local school closures, either fully or partially, however North Marston School remains fully open. All staff are working incredibly hard to maintain a full curriculum and school day for the children despite some staff absences due to other school closures and their own childcare demands. We continue with our increased levels of cleaning and hygiene to ensure maximum protection for pupils and staff. Please can we ask you to remind your children of the importance of this and that you continue to maintain social distancing measures on the school site. We have a contingency plan and remote learning policy should the need arise.

Celebrations

We would like to congratulate the following children for demonstrating our school value of “compassion” and receiving the certificates last week. YR-Eve, Y1-Holly , Y2-Jessica, Y3-Grace, Y4-Noah, Y5-Ava, Y6-Gayatri.  

Children in Need

Thank you for supporting Children in Need last week. We raised £134 altogether. In addition to being dressed in mufti, the children and staff had a great time dancing outside to the Strictly Children in Need dance.

School website

Please can we draw your attention to the school website. There is now a section for “reading” and “phonics”. As we mentioned last week, the website is being continually updated; a new section for Forest School is being prepared and will be added soon.

Amazon Wish List

We are in the process of setting up a wish list on Amazon of books and resources which we are in need of. Once we have it set up we will send an email so that, should you wish to, you can purchase some resources for the school.

Easy Fundraising

Please remember that if you are ordering online many companies will donate a percentage of the cost to our school if you go through Easyfundraising. It is at no cost to you but benefits the school. Go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk and register to donate to North Marston C E School

Food allergies

Please be mindful that we have children in school with nut allergies. We ask that you do not put items with nuts or nut products into lunchboxes. Any break time snack which KS2 children bring must be fresh fruit or vegetables.
