Following the Parent Questionnaire Mrs Avey (parent) has very kindly offered to paint a mural on the main brick wall of the school.  In order to do this she will need some help in painting the brickwork with a white undercoat.  So come on those of you who said the outside was bland and boring, now is your chance to do something about it!  The more people we have to volunteer, the quicker the job will get done.  Please leave your name at the office if you can help.



Riverfest takes place on Saturday 21st May 2016 at Newport Quay.  This annual event runs from 11.00am-3.00pm.  You don’t need money to have fun, many activities are free!



Good luck to everyone taking part in Walk the Wight this Sunday.  Remember every child at Summerfields has already walked the 26 miles so they do not need to walk on Sunday!  However if you have registered your child, they can take part in the last 4 miles from Freshwater to Alum Bay.


This week school has had phone call after phone call from parents reporting that their child has “caught” head lice.  We are very aware that every class has now had reported cases.  Only by ALL parents working together to check and treat children’s hair will we stop them spreading.  The hot weather is not helping, making conditions ideal for them.  Please ensure that you check your child’s hair regularly; even if your child has never had head lice before, we are asking everyone to check.  Please can girls with long hair ensure that it is tied up every day, ideally plaited as well, children will also be more comfortable in the hot weather.



Can we respectfully ask parents not to come to collect children early from clubs.

We are finding the front door is being left open and there are then adults in school we cannot account for.  As children are still in school at this time, this is a safeguarding issue.  Therefore if you do arrive early, please expect to wait in the foyer and please do not open the door into school.  Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.



Please can parents and carers remember that problems that occur on the public highway are NOT school’s responsibility.  If drivers behave aggressively to each other, we suggest that you telephone the police.  We constantly request that drivers respect our neighbours’ property by not blocking or reversing onto their drives.  Likewise please can we request that people are courteous to each other when trying to manoeuvre in such a tight cul-de-sac.  Our suggestion is that you park further away, there is plenty of on-street parking on the estate, and then walk to school.  We have also had some complaints from our neighbours recently regarding children running over their gardens.  Please make sure your children respect our neighbours’ property.  Thank you.



There will be a cake Cake Sale after school this Monday 16th May 2016.  All cakes and biscuits will be 30p.  All proceeds will go towards Carnival Club.  Thank you for your support.
