We are really looking forward to another academic year at Ravensmead. It was lovely to see all of the children return to school last week and we welcome all the new starters in our Nursery and Reception classes, alongside any other children that have joined us this September. We look forward to working with all of our families this year.
We would like to welcome a new member of staff to our team Mrs Snape, who will be working primarily in Key Stage 2 during the mornings supporting our children with Mathematics and English. Alongside Mrs Snape we are pleased that Miss King is continuing to work with us as one of our Year 1 teachers. If at any point you wish to speak to your child’s class teacher, please send a message into school or ring the office. The class teacher will then get back in contact with you to arrange a convenient time to meet. There is also a short “drop in” session on a Wednesday to see your child’s class teacher after school if you wish.
Our autumn term calendar is now available on our school website with hard copies being available in the foyer. As part of our curriculum offer, we intend to provide different opportunities for the children at Ravensmead and where possible we will be encouraging you to share those opportunities with your child. Please keep checking our school website about events happening in school.
It is vitally important that we are able to contact parents in case of an emergency in school. If you have changed any contact details, please ensure that the office have the correct information. We use our text messaging service to send information to parents on a regular basis. These will be sent to the first contact mobile phone number. If you have not received any text messages from school, please check that we have the correct contact details.
Annual Consent Forms
Our annual consent forms were sent out on Friday, please can you ensure that these are sent back into school by Friday 13th September.
Ravensmead is a growing school and as you appreciate our office is extremely busy. We would ask that if you do have any messages to send into school, for example a different member of the family is picking your child up at the end of the school day, that this is either sent in as a letter to the class teacher or is written in your child’s school reading diary, if this has been pre-arranged. Please help us by supporting your child to remember PE kits, Swimming Kits, Musical Instruments and lunch boxes during the week, as this will help to develop their independence.
