Have you let the office know of any new
phone numbers that you may have? It is so

Academies – the school is currently looking
into the option of converting into an Academy
and so we are sending home today lots of
information about it. We are now in a
consultation period which will run for the next
4 weeks – see separate Academy newsletter.
School lunches – following suggestions
from the children, the lunchtime menu has
been updated, with effect from Monday
2.2.15. You can find a copy of the website or
if you wish to have one at home, just ask.
The lunches are all cooked in school using
fresh ingredients and we will also be offering
milk as a drink option for all children during
the lunchtime.
Now the weather is turning colder, please make sure the children have coats, hats,
gloves & scarves, with names on! We do have quite a number of lost property in the boxes
in the KS2 hall. You are welcome to have a look through for lost items. Thanks.

School Website - is very nearly ready to be launched. It will
include lots of information including term dates, class trips,
lunchtime menus, topic work as well as important letters. The
school app will connect to the website, so you will be able to access
all the information via your phone!
Attendance Disco – another one has been booked for the end of
term for children who have managed 96% or above. It can be
harder on these cold, frosty mornings, but if children are in school
on time, it has a positive affect on their learning. If your child has
been ill, then they will have a chance to go to the disco next term.
School improvement – the Behaviour team have been working on
the school’s new behaviour policy which will be available after half
term. The Parental team continue to plan the parent Funshops and
are looking forward to working with Volunteers after half term.
