We would like to share a few reminders regarding our school breakfast club:
Breakfast Club should be booked and paid for before 7.30am on the day of the club
Doors are open from 8.00am and food is served until 8.20am, if your child arrives after this time, they may miss the opportunity to have breakfast.
If dropping your child off by car, please be vigilant of other vehicles whilst opening car doors to let children out and please park respectfully.
Payments for School Clubs/School Meals
Please can we remind parents to ensure that payments for school meals and after school clubs are made promptly. You may have noticed that reminders are now being sent each Friday to those parents with outstanding balances; please be aware that non-payment for after school clubs will result in children not being able to attend and that non-payment for school meals may result in us requesting your child comes to school with a packed lunch instead of receiving a hot meal. Whilst we understand that the cost of living has affected many of our families, as a school we cannot afford to subsidise non-payment of these items. If you have any concerns around this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Congratulations to Year 1 who have achieved 100% attendance this week! This is a fantastic achievement!
The children will be rewarded with a non-uniform day once we return after the Easter break (we will be in touch at the start of Term 5 to confirm the date)
Medical Appointments During the School Day
Please can we remind parents that unless it is an emergency, medical and dental appointments should not be made during the school day. Where appointments during school hours are unavoidable, you will need to provide us with medical evidence (proof of the appointment) in order for us to authorise the absence.
If medical evidence is not provided, time off school will be recorded as an unauthorised absence. If there are too many unauthorised absences within a certain time period, this can lead to a penalty notice (fine) being issued.
Please report any planned absences for medical appointments directly to the school office and NOT to Class Teachers or Teaching Assistants.
Holidays during term time
Please can we remind parents that they should not be taking holidays during term time. We are very fortunate to have multiple half term breaks spread throughout the school year and these are the perfect time for holidays.
As well as being disruptive to your child's education, holidays during term time will also result in a penalty notice (fine) being issued to you. The current penalty notice charge stands at £60 per parent/per child.
The school holiday dates for both this school year and next are available in the 'dates for your diary' section at the top of our newsletter, so please use this as guidance when booking time away.
The Families in Focus Team have sent us information on some fantastic opportunities for children and parents happening over the Easter Break:
