Respect Perseverance Trust

29th November 2019

Children in KS2 enjoyed the third Inter Merit Group sporting event of the year on Friday. Mr Chadwick took charge as the Lower and Upper KS2 football competitions took place on a very muddy field.

All children in Years 1-6 have spent some time over the past few weeks working with Mr Campbell on a range of songs that all show our value of Respect in some way. There is a performance of the songs on Monday 2 nd December in the school hall. 2.00pm for KS1 and 2.30pm for KS2.

The children all took part in an active afternoon on Friday 15th November to help raise money for Children in Need. There were three activities across the course of the afternoon and by the end of the day the children were very tired. All in all we raised £200 for this very worthy cause. Thank you for your support

Your child’s attendance at school is important and is something we monitor on a monthly basis. Any child with attendance below 90% is classed as a persistent absentee and may result in a parenting contract being issued. Please try to make all medical appointments outside of school time. I appreciate that for some hospital or orthodontic appointments you do not have a choice of timing, but for routine appointments please use the school holiday or after school.

We have headlice in school again. Please make sure that you check your child’s hair at least once a week and treat as necessary.

Don’t forget the Christmas Fayre on Saturday 7th December, 11.30 – 2.00pm If you are able to help, either before the day or on the day itself please let a member of the committee know. Don’t forget also the Christmas Mobile Competition. Entries were due in this morning, but we will extend this until the end of the week.
