VARIOUS FORMS FOR PARENTS TO COMPLETE

New ethnicity forms have been sent home to parents of pupils in Years R, 1 and 2 this week.  Parent questionnaires have also been sent home to children in all year groups.  We would be grateful if these could be completed and sent back to school via the green box by Friday 10th March.  Thank you.

 

HOUSE POINTS

Each half term the “House Points” from each class are collected and the House with the most points wins the trophy!  Below are the House Point totals for the spring first half term:-

Arctic House 557

Indian House 450

Pacific House 468

Therefore champions for last half term were Atlantic House.  Congratulations!

 

CAR PARKING

This week we received a phone call from a parent informing us that they nearly drove into a car that was parked on double yellow lines on the corner of Atkinson Drive.  There has also been an incident with a delivery lorry, again due to cars parking inconsiderately. We understand the parking problems that parents face every day and would not be offended if you reported the parking issues around school to the Police by telephoning 101.
