Key Dates for you
A question and answer session with Mr Lumb
On Friday 17th November at 1.30pm in the school hall, I will be giving a short presentation about the strengths of the school and the direction the shool is heading before answering any questions you might have on a range of issues to do with school. All parents who attend will be entered into a prize draw to win £20 worth of Pizza Express vouchers.
Week beginning 6th November is our assessment week where we give the children activities and quizzes to see how much progress they have made since September. It is really important your child is in school, so they don't miss out on their chance to show what they have learnt.
Anti-Bullying week 13th to 17 November
Children will again be taking part in Anti-Bullying week from Monday 13th Nov. The children will be focussing on a particular form of bullying and what to do if it is happening. The children will show what they have been learning in the school hall on Thursday 23rd November at 9am.
Children in Need - Friday 17th November
To show our support, we will all be dressing up in spots for this year's Spotacular fundraising day. There will be prizes for the best dressed and spottiest children! So get spotting and don't forget you Pudsey ears! A voluntary contribution of 50p on the day is suggested.
Take over day - Friday 10th November
Across the country, children are taking over! In schools, museums and libraries children are experiencing what the world of work is really like. Abigail and Harley, our Head Girl and Head Boy, will be taking over from Mr Lumb for the day and children on the School Council and in Year 6 will be working in different roles across the school.
Parent' and Carers' meetings
This half-term we will be running Parents' and Carer meetings on Tuesday 21st Nov in the evening between 3.30-6.30. We will also be offering appointments on Thursday 24th Nov in the afternoon between 1.30 and 3.30.We hope that spreading the appointments over two days will allow us to see more parents and carers at a time that is more suitable for you.
