Friday 9th September 2022 Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back. It is lovely to see you all and have all the children back in school. Welcome to our new Reception and Nursery parents and any other families who have joined us this year. We hope you and your children will be really happy here. I hope you had a lovely summer, even though it’s beginning to feel like summer is slowly disappearing.

The children have settled in really well and are all smiles. We are really impressed with how the Nursery and Reception children have settled in too. It is like they have been here forever. Well done Nursery and Reception.

Welcome to the newsletter on our new website. We are still learning how to use it and update it so please be a little patient with us.

We talked to the children today about the sad news of the Queen’s passing. We allowed children to talk and ask questions. We showed them this video in case you would also like to share it at home.

I am so proud of how honest, kind and caring our children are and how they support each other. If you have any questions about anything please ask.

I know clubs went live last night and they quickly disappeared. I know this can be frustrating and we are always looking at ways of improving the system and making it as fair as we can. Jamila is going to try and ensure every child has a club. We have a lot of clubs but we do have to be conscious of space and ensure that the clubs are high quality as these are extra-curricular and not childcare. It may take us a few days to put new children on sco-pay so we apologise for any delays. Thank you for your support with this.

Thank you to those of you who have offered help at our International Food and Welcome event after school on Friday 23rd September. I am really looking forward to it. This is a great opportunity for us all to be together to welcome in the new academic year. Please can you let me know if you are able to donate any dish or offer help, as we still need a lot more of both. We really want this event to be really successful. Thank you for supporting us with this and I hope you can attend.

We will be sending out more information on dates for the term next week. Please look out.

I am really looking forward to this year. We have a lot to look forward to.

Have a lovely weekend,
