4th June 2015

Dear Parent/Carer,

I trust that your half term break went well. We are hopefully in for a spell of warm weather so please ensure that you apply sun block to your child and supply a hat! (OK I’m being optimistic)

There have been and will be lots of exciting events taking place over the next few weeks-so please check the website and Schoop as frequently as you can.

AFTER SCHOOL CARE PROVISION –SEPTEMBER

Some exciting news ! We will be able to offer our after school facility starting from September of this year.

This means that you will be able to leave your child on the premises immediately after school until 5:45 Monday to Friday. And from October half term we will be able to extend the provision until 6:15. We are also hoping to be able to provide Holiday Care for half term and the Christmas period.

Your child will be in the safe and secure care of experienced and qualified adults accessing a variety of activities- physical and creative as well as relaxing and ‘chilled.’ All children will also receive a snack and a drink. The facility will be based in our old and new halls as well as our Learning Lounge and the outdoors.

Children have come up with a name for the provision which is: SAPLINGS (Thanks to Luke Tricklebank!)

Costs will be: £9:50 for the whole session and £7.50 for the first hour.

We will not be able to accept Childcare Vouchers until after October.

If you wish to enrol please contact our Care Director: Kath John on: 07903433883

BOOK WEEK/SCHOOL FAYRE

As published previously, we start our own Book Week tomorrow and are asking children to dress up as their favourite character from a children’s book! If children would like to donate a book, it will be sold at the fayre on 20th June.

We will be running a Book Fair every afternoon after school next week, so please try to support us by calling in to the school and buying a book!

We also have some published authors coming in to read to children.
