Newsletter 7th October 2017
Message from Mrs Anderson…
Hopefully by now you will all have had your parent consultation with your child’s class teacher, if you have not please ensure you get in touch and another date and time can be booked. It is really important that you have the first meeting and discuss how your child has settled, together with how we can work together.
Thank you to everyone who supported with donations for our Harvest Mass. We are delighted to be able to send these gifts to The Food Bank- they will make such a big difference to many families. The Mass was a very special Mass and the children did a superb job in leading in with their prayers, readings and beautiful singing. Thank you to Father John for leading this Mass.
Date for your diary…
This year is the 80th anniversary of our school- to celebrate this we will be having a special Mass on Wednesday 1st November at 11am. We will be inviting family, friends and associates who have links to our school to this Mass and would love you, our parents and families to attend with us. As you will notice this is also All Saints day, so a very special feast day to signify this event. We are hoping that during the day, the Bishop of Plymouth will bless our new garden. Further details will come your way in the next few weeks.
Non- Pupil Days: Don’t forget that Friday 20th October and Friday 3rd November are both non-pupil days.
I am delighted to be able to update you on the birth of Mrs Griffith’s first baby, Shem Wilbur Griffiths was born on Thursday 28th September weighing 8lbs 4ozs. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr and Mrs Griffiths on the safe arrival of their first baby. We are all looking forward to seeing baby Shem and Mrs Griffiths in school.
Please help us…
Earrings: The school uniform policy is in place to keep our children safe- it clearly states in our guidance that if children have their ear/s pierced they can only wear small studs. Please can you ensure this is the case with your children, if they are wearing bigger earrings we will ask them to remove them as there is a risk that they will get caught during play times and during PE sessions. It is always better that the children leave their earrings at home.
Please can you ensure that when you are dropping off or picking up your children from school that you are not using your mobile telephones in the school building. Due to our safeguarding expectations we only allow mobile telephones to be used in designated areas. If you are using it near classrooms and in corridors you will be asked to switch them off. I am sure you will support us with this in keeping your children safe.
Parking in the church area: I have been asked to remind you that we are not permitted to use the church parking areas during drop off and pick up. Please can you find an alternative place to park. With children walking down Bishops Walk it is important to stop any vehicular movement at these times.
