November Also see the Diary
The Christmas performances are on:
Thursday 13th December
Monday 17th December
Tuesday 18th December
Wednesday 19th December
all at 9.30 am
Every performance involves the whole school and will be the same. The performance on Thursday 13th December is the only one that younger children can attend. A letter will be sent out on Friday offering tickets for sale. All proceeds from ticket sales are used to fund the Christmas Craft Afternoon.
Christmas Fun Day
On Friday 14th December we will be having a surprise visitor for the children in the morning followed by Christmas Craft afternoon. A letter will follow shortly inviting an adult to come in for the afternoon to participate in craft activities with the children.
Holidays and Attendance
You are reminded that absence from school other than for sickness or medical reasons will not generally be authorised. When children are taken on holiday during term time they miss important chunks of learning which makes it very difficult for them when they return and they find it hard to catch up. When children then miss significant time due to illness as well they can easily lose up to 4 weeks at school. In accordance with Hampshire County Council Regulations the school has to issue penalty notices to parents who take their children out of school during term time.
Our Home School Link Worker keeps a close watch on attendance levels for all of the children. A good attendance percentage is at least 95%. A child is considered persistently absent if attendance is at 90% or below.
The Home School Link Worker can offer support if required.
Medicine in school
If your child needs prescribed medicine or Calpol during the school day please bring it into the office and complete a medicine consent form. Under no circumstances should any medication (including cough sweets) be put into book bags as this is a severe hazard to other children.
If you know that your child will need Calpol during the day please send it in as we keep it in school for emergency use only
Christmas Jumper Day
The last day of term is Friday 21st December and this will be a Christmas jumper day with donations to go towards the school funds please.
Children in Need
We raised £230 on Friday 16th November for Children in Need. The children had lots of fun taking part in the Danceathon led by CM Sports. Thank you to everyone for the donations.
The Home School Link Workers from the infant and junior schools will be holding a drop-in session once a month at the junior school on a Monday morning from 9.00 to 11.00 am. Look out for further information after Christmas.
Please remember that nobody should be parking or turning round in the driveway leading down to the school gate. This is for the safety of the children as they are coming to and leaving school.
Rotary Club Shoebox appeal
We collected 67 shoeboxes for the appeal. The Rotary Club were overwhelmed by the generosity of our parents and staff who donated such beautiful boxes. We are sure that the children who receive the boxes will be so happy and grateful. Thank you!
