Head of School update

This week at school….

The end of this week has, of course, been marked with the sad news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II.   We will be supporting the children during this period of official mourning if they have questions.  The school will remain open as usual, if anything changes then we will of course be in contact.  During our all school assembly I was incredibly proud of the mature and respectful behaviour of every child as we remembered the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  The Queen’s life of duty and service to the country is a great example to us all and underpins our British values.  We extend our condolences to everyone who is feeling the effect of her passing.

In school it has been lovely to see all our children and parents back after the long summer holidays.  This year we were so lucky with the weather and all the staff have enjoyed listening to the children’s experiences of fun on the beach, in parks and around our lovely county spending time with family and friends.

The children have all settled in well to their new classes and we are very proud of how they have embraced a return to learning in school so quickly.

Uniform: Please read the letter sent out yesterday with all of our reminders on.  We will be working with children and parents to support this.  If you have any queries about uniform please check the parent area of the website for information.

Last day of term:  Whilst it may seem early, please note that the last day of this term is Thursday 20 October.  The term calendar is available on the website.

Clubs:  After school clubs will return for next week.  Please complete the surveys to book a place.  All applications are accepted in order and we will hold a waiting list if needed.

School Money:  Thank you for your patience while we experienced issues with the platform.  Now they have been resolved, please go on and rebook your child’s lunches.  Previous bookings will have been deleted.  We will send out a reminder each week.  If you do not book a lunch for your child, then please provide a packed lunch from home.
