School closes for half term this Friday, 21st February, at 3:20pm. We return on Monday 3rd March.

Morning Registration – Late Arrivals
Please be aware that school opens at 8.50 am and registration closes at 9 am. Any child who arrives after
9 am will be marked in as Unauthorised. Late arrival at school disrupts the class and may adversely affect a child’s educational achievements. If a child is 5 minutes late for school every day they would have missed
19 days of Primary education. Educational Penalty Notices may be issued to parents of children who are persistently late, arriving after the close of registration.

Friends Committee
Following the Friends’ AGM the following positions were elected:

Treasurer – Elizabeth Owen (re-elected); Chair – Georgietta Roberts; Vice Chair – Rob Jowett;
50/50 Organiser – Catherine McCormack. The position of Secretary remains open. The new Officers will be in touch with parents soon to outline details of their plans for the remainder of the year.

The next football match is at home on Tuesday 4th March against Pownall Green. All supporters are very welcome.

Parents’ evenings
Parents’ evenings will be on Monday 17th February, 4-6pm, and Thursday 20th February, 4-7pm.
Please note that dates will be arranged for both Mr Cardwell and Miss Whittle once they are back in school.

Car Parking
We remind people to please park sensibly and safely around school to ensure we avoid accidents.

There are a number of parents who are continuing to park unsafely and without thought to residents. The safety of all children needs to be paramount and to ensure that this happens, we have asked for help from the police and traffic wardens.

Thought of the Week
Continuing our theme of the Winter Olympics, congratulations to Lizzy Yarnold on gaining the gold medal in the women’s skeleton.

I can be proud of my achievements.

Best wishes,

Miss Sheila Harrison
