MAY DAY CELEBRATIONS
Today each family will have received a letter about our May Day celebrations. The arrangements will be exactly the same as last year and will be a strictly ticketed event, one per family due to space in the hall. Tickets will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served basis’. Please return your ticket request via the ‘Green Box’. Thank you.
We would like to thank parents for using the absence line on our phone system. By leaving a message about your child’s absence you save the office team a lot of time in the morning when they are extremely busy. The absence line is available 24/7 however if you have run out of phone credit or have no signal to make a call, please notify us of your child’s absence by e-mail to office@ summerfields.iow.sch.uk by 9:30am.

BIG PEDAL EVENT
The ‘Big Pedal’ is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school. Powered by Sustrans and funded by the Bike Hub, the 2017 challenge will run from 20th to 31st March 2017. Sustrans have been into school to explain about the challenge and how your child can take part.
On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. A school’s best five days will determine their final position, but they can log journeys on all ten days if they wish.
