PARENTS’ EVENINGS

Reminder that our Parents’ Evenings are due to take place on Tuesday and Thursday next week. Please sign up for an appointment time on the sheets outside of your child’s classroom.

 

SMART WATCHES AND MOBILE PHONES

You are respectfully reminded that smart phones are not allowed in school. If your child (Years 4—6 only) walks to school on their own and needs to bring a mobile phone, please ensure that you have returned a signed Mobile Device Parental Consent form.  Please be reminded that all mobile devices must be switched off and handed in to the school office before school starts. Thank you for your co-operation.

 

WINTER SCHOOL UNIFORM

Children should wear their winter school uniform when we return to school after half term on Monday 31st October as follows:

Girls

Jade polo shirt, navy blue crew necked sweatshirt, navy blue cardigan, dark grey skirt/pinafore dress, dark grey formal trousers, grey socks or tights and plain black sturdy shoes (not fashion boots, shoes or built up heels).

Boys

Jade polo shirt, navy blue crew necked sweatshirt, dark grey trousers (long or short), grey socks and plain black shoes (not trainers).

Please also send your child to school with a coat every day as the weather is getting colder.

 

DOGS

There was a fight between two dogs this week outside of school which frightened the children and adults! Please do not leave your dog tied up to the school railings.

 

SUMMERFIELDS SUPER STARS

We are interested in finding out how well our past pupils are doing so we can celebrate their success and inspire the current children.  So far we know of a pupil who has just started to study medicine, one who Is now Head Boy at Medina College and another who Is an advocacy manager at Age UK in London.

So if you know of someone who has gone on to study at university or has made a real success of their life, please write a quick note including their name and achievements and pop it in the green box.

 

FACEBOOK

Can we respectfully remind parents that Facebook is not the appropriate place to air your views on school and particularly on school staff. You have signed the home school agreement to say you will support the schools’ policies and procedures.  We are also hearing of parents commenting on other children’s behaviour.  Facebook is not the place to do this.  Please think before you post!
