Microsoft word - 4 28th september 2012 v2We have managed to survive the wet weather and are hoping for a drier weekend! The children have made an excellent start to the school year, with all our pupils and staff working really hard and playing
their part fully to help us to continue moving forward as a school.
Start of the School Day
We would just like to remind parents of the arrangements at the start of the school day.
The school day begins at 8.55am, when pupils line up on the playground and enter the school promptly
to begin their learning.
Pupils and parents are welcome on the school premises at 8.45am, when we also have members of staff
on duty to ensure the safety and welfare of our pupils on the playground. During inclement weather
the school doors will only open at 8.45am to allow children into school. We ask that parents leave their
children at the school doors and allow pupils to come into school independently, as the corridors
become quickly congested and very wet and therefore a safety issue.
We would ask that if you and your child arrive at school before 8.45am that you remain with them until
a member of staff is present. During inclement weather, the pavilion is available for shelter until
8.45am, when, as outlined above, pupils can then enter the school building and be supervised by our
teaching staff. Again we ask that pupils are left to enter the building alone, to foster independence
and enable them to enter in their classroom in a safe and calm manner.
We thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Football Coaching Year 1 / 2 and Year 3 / 4
We will soon be sending out details regarding Football Coaching for these year-groups. This will be provided by David Campbell Soccer, who delivered excellent coaching for our Year 3 and 4 children last year. Unfortunately, Tom the coach who delivered the training, has recently been injured. Therefore, we are in the process of making alternative arrangements which is why there has been a delay in sending out a letter to parents. Further information will be sent out next week, when all the arrangements have l - Tickets are still available to buy for one more week - the first draw will be next Friday. The cost is £12 per number for the year to take part in 12 monthly draws with prizes of £15, £10 and £5. This is a great fundraiser, and exciting for the children if their number is drawn out. If you can't attend our fundraising events during the year, please at least support this.
