Spellathon!
Our final figure for Spellathon is £2722!  We would like to thank you for your support in helping your child to raise funds. This money will be used in school to subsidise visits and visitors for your child.

 

Open door Policy
A gentle reminder that if you have any concerns or need to speak to a member of staff about your child, please send a message in to school or write it in their reading diary. On Wednesday, there is an opportunity at the end of day 3.20pm – 3.30pm to see a member of staff prior to our staff meeting. Please talk to us in person. We would prefer this rather than any issues being posted on social media that we may not be aware of. We will try our best to sort any issues or concerns.

 

Keeping Safe
Thank you for your co-operation and support with parking outside of school. We would ask that you do remind your child about being safe if they ride their scooter or bike down to school.

 

E-Safety
We thought it might be helpful, especially with Christmas approaching to inform you of a website you can use as a parent to check what content and age rating a computer game has. We hope you find it useful.

Payments for Educational visits
If you wish to pay for any educational visit going forward by cheques, please can you make sure they are payable to “Staffordshire County Council”.

 

Breakfast Club @ 8.40am
Going forward if your child is in receipt of Free School Meals currently (not Universal school meals), then they will not have to pay for their breakfast at school as we will fund this.

 

Keele Christmas Tree Farm
If you are buying a real Christmas Tree this year, we would ask that you go to Keele Christmas Tree Farm to purchase this. The children have brought a leaflet home and we would ask that you take this with you for your purchase. At the end of the Christmas season Keele Christmas Tree Farm will then donate a percentage of funds to school from the total number of purchases made by our families this year. Please, help to support our school.

 

Updated Snow Procedure & Policy
It is getting to that time in the year where the weather is becoming colder. Our updated Snow procedure and policy is now on the school website. We will endeavour to keep the school open, as long as it is safe to do so for our families and staff. We will endeavour to notify you by text by 8am.
Please find more details on the website.

 

Nursery 2019 Applications
If your child turns 3 years of age before the 31st August 2019, they will be able to attend our Nursery setting from 1st September. From this year schools have to deal with their own admissions into Nursery. We are in the process of putting the up to date information on the website, but we would ask that you do complete a school enrolment form as soon as possible. The closing date for admissions is Friday 3rd May, 2019.

 

Thank you for your support!
Our Grandparents Afternoon Tea was fantastic, and we raised £505.63 for Alzheimer’s Research.

Our School council organised this event and with your support it has been a great success. Thank you!!!
We are planning to do similar events in the year inviting parents in for Afternoon Tea or for workshops where you can spend time and work with your child. Dates to follow.
