Please can we remind parents that if there are any issues regarding their child in school, including incidents involving other children in their class, that they should speak to the Class Teacher or the Head Teacher, rather than discussing incidents with other parents. We have found that this can lead to misinformation being given and in some cases unfounded rumours are started. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
Quay Arts are holding a “Free” family drop-in on Sunday 21st June 2015 from 10am-1pm. Families can take part in activities based on a Midsummer’s Nights Dream making crowns and headdresses. All cheeky spirits must be accompanied by an adult!
ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL
PLEASE remember that school closes at 1.30pm next Friday, 12th June 2015, when all children MUST be collected. Please remember to allow extra time for your journey due to the one-way system being in operation. Therefore there will be no Celebration Assembly this week. School will be open as normal on Monday 15th June 2015. The Residents Association have been at school issuing permits at the beginning of this week to enable parents to drop off/collect children during the festival. For all questions regarding access to the estate during the festival, please contact DTM, the traffic management company, directly on 897190.

We would like to Welcome Mrs Clare Bowen to our school, as our new Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator.
TELEPHONE CALLS TO SCHOOL
Can we please request that you try to give messages to your children about going home, before coming to school. Unfortunately with over 190 children in school, it is very difficult to have time to pass on messages such as “tell him to start walking and I’ll meet him” or “can you bring your trainers home today”. While the office always tries their best to be accommodating, twice a week there is only one member of staff, which consequently means they spend a lot of time “running around” and not in the office. Of course we understand emergencies, such as accidents and being held up in traffic but please can we ask that other calls are kept to a minimum. We do appreciate your co-operation in this matter.
THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU ARE 11¾ …
The next time you eat an avocado, save the stone. Stick four toothpicks into the stone around the middle and balance it, pointed end upwards, on top of a glass. Half-cover the stone with water and put the glass in a warm, sunny place. Change the water every two days and wait for it to sprout (three to six weeks) before planting in a pot.
WORD OF THE WEEK
The word of the week is “obstreperous”.
WHOLE SCHOOL TARGET
Peace and quiet. Help your friends to get on with their work by keeping quiet during lesson times.
