How time flies when you’re having fun!
Welcome back. I hope you’re all reenergised and ready for some fun learning. An even bigger welcome to the smallest members of our school in the nursery and reception classes. We look forward to the continued parental support.
Firstly let me introduce you to our two new teachers. Miss Simmons – will be teaching one of the year 2 classes (you may recognise her as she completed some of her teacher training in reception last year with Mrs Clark). Miss Woolf – will be teaching in year 3. I’m sure you will all join me in welcoming them to our school.
Our Value for this term is PRIDE. Please encourage your children to have pride in the way they present themselves and in their homework, teach them to be proud of who they are!
Our whole school question is ‘What if..?’ Please refer to your child’s year group newsletter to discover the ‘What ifs’ they will be discovering.
ATTENDANCE – We had a big push on attendance last year and had the best attendance ever, as a whole school we achieved 95.2%! But we want to aim higher. Can we achieve 96.5%?
We need YOUR help!
If your child comes to school every day for a whole term we will enter you into a raffle. There will be one for each term. If your child is selected you will receive £200 of supermarket shopping vouchers of your choice.
Please do not take your child out of school unless they are ill, and let the school office know by 9am on the days they are not in (01793 536494). We have had parents taking their children on extended holidays, which then impacts on their education. Swindon Borough Council are now taking further action on those families that take extended holidays and taking them to court as they are breaking the law and could end up with more than a fine!
WE NEED YOU!
Do you want to make a difference to your child’s school? Do you want to have a say in the way the school runs? Are you able to give up 2 hours each term?
If the answer to all of these questions is a ‘YES’ then why not think about becoming a parent governor? Pop into school and meet with Mrs Gregory or myself to find out more.
Here’s to a great school year.
