We would like to wish everyone a very healthy and happy 2018
The children have settled quickly into school after the Christmas holidays and are working hard. Thank you for continuing to support our new uniform policy. The children look really smart and the behaviour has been excellent!
Information about the curriculum and timetables for this term will be sent out later on in the week. Look out for these!
We are continuing with our attendance initiatives over the Spring Term. Children will receive a raffle ticket at the end of each week they have 100% attendance for that week and no late marks. These tickets will go into the attendance draw and the winner will be picked out at the end of each half term! At the end of Autumn 1 the prize was a Smiggles voucher and at the end of Autumn 2 the prize was a cinema voucher!!
But remember !! You have to be in it to win it!!
Each Monday afternoon the children with 100% attendance for the previous week will be invited to have juice and biscuits with Mrs Hall!!

Who are young carers?
A Young carer can be any child or young person up to the age of 18 who takes responsibility for looking after someone else - usually a parent or sibling, but it could be a grandparent or another relative.
Young carers look after someone else because that person may have:
- Mental ill health
- Difficulties with alcohol or other substances
- A long term illness
- A life-limiting illness
- A disability
- A learning disability
Young Carers Drop In
There is a drop in on Wednesday at 9am for parents and at break time in school for pupils.
We have updated our Behaviour Policy and this is available on the school website. There are quite a few changes to it.
We are an Operation Encompass School. We will be informed by Social Care if any child has been involved in, the previous day, a domestic violence incident. This will enable us to know about children who are experiencing difficulties and support them as they may need it. If you have not received a letter about this or would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
In the light of the new 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' document we have recently updated our Safeguarding Policy. This is available on our Parents Section of the website under 'Policies'. We urge you to view it.
We would like to say thank you to parents and carers for continuing to help your children to learn their spellings!! We have recently looked at their books and there is a definite improvement in spelling across the school! The children are also improving their weekly spelling scores. Your support has had a positive impact!!
Family Support drop in - Paula Stone is available every Wednesday (term time) to give support with children's health, behaviour, attendance, problems at home and at school. You can also talk to a Nurse who will be there the first Wednesday of every month, in the Parents Room, Key Stage 1 building, 8:45 - 9:30am.
Thanks to Councillor David Cook for coming in to work with Eco and School Council, and Y3 to share ideas to help us to get involved in the local community.
