MAY DAY AT ARRETON BARNS
What a day it was! A huge thank you to all who attended Arreton Barns on Bank Holiday Monday. The children were extremely well behaved and a credit to our school. They danced really well too, despite the extreme heat. Thank you for your much appreciated support.—Mrs Stiles.
Advance notice that school will be finishing early on Friday 22nd June at 1:30pm due to the Isle of Wight Festival. All pupils will need to be collected promptly at 1:30pm.

PARENTAL BEHAVIOUR IN SCHOOL
Please familiarise yourself with the school website: www.summerfieldsprimary.co.uk where you can find useful information about our school. We would like to draw your attention to the Parental Behaviour policy which can be viewed on the website via the following route: Publications, Policies. We have recently had to refer to this policy and would like to make you aware of the following:
We welcome visitors to our school and will act to ensure it remains a safe place for pupils, staff and other members of our community. If you threaten or assault anyone in the school, or persist in abusive behaviour, you will be removed from the premises and may be prosecuted.
SAFE AND WELL HOME CHECK
The Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service, in partnership with Hampshire Fire and Rescue, now have got an online home safety check that can be completed in a few minutes. They want to make you and your home safer. This questionnaire will assess fire safety in your home. Once completed, you will get a personalised fire safety plan, which will offer advice on how to prevent fires in your home and how to remain safe. Please visit www.hantsfire.gov.uk/safeandsound.
Smoke Alarm Advice
Please remember to check your smoke alarms: get into the habit of testing on the 1st of each month. Get your children to assist you. A smoke alarm can give you those precious few minutes of warning which could help you and your family to get out safely. Many deaths and injuries could be prevented if people had early warning and were able to get out in time. Buying and fitting a smoke alarm could help save your own and your family’s life.
The Footprint Trust will again be hosting Riverfest at Newport Quay on Saturday 19th May, 11am to 3pm. This is a free family event. For more information visit footprint-trust.co.uk/riverfest.
REPLYING TO TEXTS SENT FROM SCHOOL
Several parents have tried to reply to texts sent from school. Although it seems that you can reply, your text will not be delivered as our texting service does not include the facility to receive incoming messages. If you would like to contact us regarding a text you have received, please do so by calling the school office on 525085.
