***BE EMPOWERED – KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE ONLINE OVER THE SUMMER!***

Dear Families

With the 6 weeks’ holiday coming up, we know that children children will be spending even more time online.  Online safety is a huge issue, children are so clever nowadays, and parents (who are responsible for what their children do and access online) need to understand how they can set controls and boundaries.  Please watch the videos in the link below for the latest information.

We’re all going on Summer Holiday!

Thank you to everyone for supporting the Year 6 this week. I am sure you will agree that they were all brilliant in their performances. Everyone had learnt their lines, knew the song words and what to do!

The children were all passionate about the play: singing and acting their hearts out.

Here are a selection of photos to remind you how fantastic they are – we think a few might have a career on stage! We are very proud of them all.

Well done to everyone and thank you for all your support.

Breakfast Club Notice

 

Dear Families,

Recently, we have noticed an increase in the number of vehicles entering the school car park during the Breakfast Club drop-off time. While we understand the convenience this may offer, it poses safety risks especially during the busy morning hours.

To ensure the safety of all, we kindly ask that parents and carers refrain from driving into the car park when dropping off their children for Breakfast Club. Instead, we kindly ask that you to walk your child to the entrance.

The safety of our children is our top priority.

We greatly appreciate your understanding and support in making our school environment as safe as possible.

Thankyou

Medication Collection

Dear Families,

It is school policy to return all medications back home at the end of the summer term. Parents and carers are responsible for collecting unused medication at the end of the summer term. Therefore, please arrange to collect your child’s medication from school by the last day of term.

If your child still requires medication in school when we return, please send the medication to school at the beginning of term and fill in a new medical form, which can be obtained in the main school office.

Medication cannot be given until this form has been completed, signed, and returned to school.

Individual letters will be sent out for those who have medication held in school.

Epi pens and inhalers should be collected at the end of the school day on Friday 19th from your child’s class teacher.

Many thanks

Headlice 10/07/24

Dear Families,

Head lice are a common issue in primary schools, and they can spread quickly among children, particularly when they are in close contact during playtime or group activities. While head lice do not pose a serious health threat, they can be a nuisance and cause discomfort for your child.

Regular checks of your child’s hair are essential for early detection and prevention of head lice infestations. Please take a few minutes to thoroughly inspect your child’s hair for any signs of lice, such as:

• Itching or scratching of the scalp

• Visible lice or eggs (nits) attached to the hair

• Red bumps or sores on the scalp

If you discover that your child has head lice, it’s essential to take prompt action to treat the infestation and prevent it from spreading to other children.

We maintain strict confidentiality regarding cases of head lice, and your cooperation is vital in helping us ensure a healthy learning environment for all students.

To further reduce the risk of head lice infestations, please encourage your child to avoid sharing hats, hairbrushes, and other personal items with their friends. Additionally, remind them to avoid close head-to-head contact during playtime and group activities.

Thankyou for your cooperation in keeping our school community healthy and happy.
