Dear Parents/Carers,


I hope you had an enjoyable half term break with your families and are ready for a successful term 2.  Today we have given the children a yellow ICT user agreement to bring home. Please can you discuss this with your child and send it back in signed and dated as soon as possible. These forms were given out to some parents at parents evening; if you have already completed and returned one you do not need to do this again. Thank you


Accelerated Reader – Many children from Year 3 have begun the process of becoming accelerated readers. If your child has not yet been fully inducted to join the accelerated reader scheme please keep encouraging and enjoying reading with your children, we hope that all Year 3 children will achieve this soon. We have sent letters home this week for parents to receive emailed updates about their children’s progress on accelerated leader, please sign up to this service.

Monday 13th November – due to staff training

ParentPay – I am aware that the ParentPay website has had intermittent technical issues throughout this week. They have assured us these problems have now been resolved. Please may I ask you to clear any outstanding balances at your earliest convenience. Please Note: To pay in advance you need to pay money into your ParentPay account and then allocate it to dinners/breakfast club or after school club as appropriate.

Individual Photographs next Wednesday, 8th November –We shall have family photographs taken as usual. Please bring younger siblings (non-school age) from 8:15am. School age siblings will have their photos taken together during the morning. Please remember children are to wear their school jumpers or cardigans.

Top Table - This week Tyler, Hermione, Freya, Kyle, Milly and Joshua (from Raven class) have been chosen by the lunchtime supervisors to join the ‘Top Table’ for having super behaviour, good manners and using their cutlery well (if they have hot dinners). Well done everyone!


We are looking to recruit a lunchtime supervisor. If you are interested please ask at the school office for further information and an application form.

Time to start school - If your child was born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014 you need to apply for a Reception Year place for September 2018. The closing date for these applications is 15th January 2018. For more information or to apply online please visit
