STAY, READ, PLAY AND TALK!
Thank you to everyone who came along to the ‘Stay, read, play and talk’ sessions held in school this week. Look out in the newsletter for future sessions that will be held each half term.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE A COMPLAINT?
We know we do not always get things right in school and if you do want to make a complaint please read the Schools Complaints Policy and Concerns and Complaints Guidelines information found on the school website. Parents also need to be aware of the Home School Agreement, Parental Behaviour, Social Media and Parental Use of Social Networking policies so that they follow school procedures (which have been written in consultation with parents). School works best when we work together—we make mistakes—we are only human!
YEAR 4 TRAVEL ON RED FUNNEL FERRY
This week our Year 4 children travelled to and from Southampton on the Red Funnel car ferry as part of their Geography project. Everyone enjoyed the day and the children were great ambassadors for the school. Well done Year 4 on your good behaviour!
YEAR 3 & 4 CLASS ASSEMBLY
Year 3 class assembly due to take place next week has been postponed until Tuesday 12th June at 2:45pm. Year 4 class assembly will be next Wednesday 21st March at 2:45pm. All welcome.
MAY DAY CELEBRATIONS
Our May Day celebrations will take place on Friday 4th May 2018. This will be a ticketed event as in previous years and tickets will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Only one ticket will be allocated per family so please do not ask for ‘extras’ as space is extremely limited in the school hall. Please look out in your child’s bookbag as letters have been sent home today.
VEGETARIAN LUNCH OPTION
As with jacket potato orders, if your child would like a vegetarian option for lunch they will need to fill in a ‘green vegetarian slip’ at the reception desk. As all food is cooked to order and to reduce food waste, your child will not receive a vegetarian meal unless a slip is completed.
