07.10.22 Newsletter Attendance Fundraising Update Events this week Parent teacher meetings Eco Council Online Safety
Attendance and Punctuality
There have been 6 hours and 57 minutes of learning lost this week, due to children arriving late to school.
Our overall attendance for the week is only 89.76%. Only class Y6A met our target for attendance this week. They had 98.89% . Mrs Boocock and myself will be monitoring children’s attendance over the next two weeks and will be requesting meetings with parents if there are concerns about their child’s attendance.
Thank you to all who attended the Coffee Morning on Monday. It was lovely to see those families who were able to attend. Your generous donations (cakes/biscuits and financial donations) have helped us to raise just over £200 for MacMillan Cancer Charity.
Fundraising for People Affected by Floods in Pakistan
I am delighted to say that we raised over £1000 to send to charities working with people affected by floods in Pakistan. Again, your donations were exceptionally generous.
Parent/carer meetings with teachers
In the week beginning 17th October, teachers will be available to meet with parents/carers to talk about your child’s progress in class. To make an appointment you will need access to School Spider – please ask Mrs Iqbal if you have not got access to this.
You will be able to make your appointment from Friday 7th October at 6pm.
We have re-established our Eco Council in school and a number of children from Y3 – 6 have volunteered to take part. They have met over the recent weeks and are looking at ways of how our school can be more environmentally friendly.
Events in the past week - Morris Dancers in Y3
Children in Year 3 were visited by a group of Morris Dancers this week. It was very exciting for children to see this English folk tradition and to take part in some of the steps themselves.
Each week I will send you a guide of how you, as parents, can help to keep your child safe online.
These will also be available on the ‘Online Safety’ section of the school website.
The first one is below and has information for parents about the use of YouTube. It mentions the risks that YouTube can have if children use it alone and it has some advice for parents including checking privacy settings.
It also tells you about Google Family, which is a way of monitoring what your children watch, upload and share, to check that they are only accessing appropriate content online.
Thank you for your support,
