Newsletter 15

5th January 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,                                                                          

Welcome back and Happy New Year. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas break and are ready for the year ahead.

We are looking into a more efficient way of communicating our newsletters; some suggestions have been to send them to parents electronically (via email), to use twitter or a blog or to produce the newsletter fortnightly rather than on a weekly basis. I am happy to hear any suggestions you may have for the Newsletter. 

Please can I ask parentsNOT to park in the Knightstone car parks (Starling Close & Woodpecker Drive) these are clearly signposted for residents only. Thank you

Fizz Pop Science Club(Change of start date) – Fizz Pop science club will now commence next Tuesday 9th January and will run until Tuesday 6th February.

Sports to School Clubs commence next week, 8th January. Unfortunately due to low numbers Netball club for both KS1 (Fridays) and KS2 (Mondays) has been changed to Tag-Rugby. If you would like your child to join Tag-Rugby Club please let the office know.  

Would you be interested in coming in to talk to our Foundation children about your profession or an exciting hobby/interest you may have. Perhaps you are a part time astronaut, vet, fire fighter or nurse? Or maybe you have an interest/hobby in wildlife, bee keeping, marathon running or magic! If you are happy to come in and share your experiences please talk to Mrs Caple or Mrs Tucker (Foundation teachers) or alternatively speak with the school office.

Do you have an old personal CD player at home that you no longer use? If so are you happy to donate it to our Foundation classes?

ParentPay –All payments for dinners, after school club and breakfast club need to be paid in advance – this is in line with the procedures of the ELAN Multi Academy Trust that we are joining on 1st February.

We still have a number of children with balances on their accounts that need to be cleared within the next week. If you are having difficulties with accessing ParentPay please contact the school office who will be happy to assist.
