Newsletter November 2018

Dates for your diary and more, including inset and non-uniform days.

Hallowe’en Discos
Children who attended the Hallowe’en discos last week have said how much they enjoyed the evening – many thanks to all of the staff and parents who made the evening run smoothly.

Parents’ Evening
We will be holding parents’ evenings on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th November. You will already have received an appointment letter from your child’s teacher.

Pupils’ punctuality
The school day starts at 8.55 am. Please ensure that your child arrives at school on time each day. As the evenings are becoming darker, we would ask that parents/carers collect their children promptly at the end of the day, in particular, when they are attending after school activities.

Vacancy – Midday Assistant
We currently have a vacancy for a midday assistant to support our pupils and midday supervisors each day. The hours are 1.25 per day (term time) either between 11.30am to 12.45pm and 12 noon to 1.15pm. Application forms and further details are available at the school office, or by visiting Closing date for applications is Friday 16th November.

School Photographs
The closing date for photograph orders is Friday 9th November. Our photographer will be calling again on Tuesday 6th November late in the morning to do a mop-up session, when pupils who were absent on the original day will have an opportunity to have their photograph taken.

Non-uniform day – Friday 16th November
To coincide with BBC Children in Need on Friday 16th November, we will be holding a non-uniform day. This academic year we are dedicating all of our fundraising to Claire House. The charity is close to our hearts as Claire attended New Brighton Primary School, and would have been celebrating her 40th birthday next July. There will be other fundraising events planned throughout the year to support Claire House.

Christmas Craft Afternoon – Saturday 8th December
On Saturday 8th December we will be holding a Christmas Craft/games/grotto afternoon 1.00 pm – 3.00 pm.
