If your child is not in school for any reason, please phone the school office to let us know. The answer machine is on from 4:00pm until 8:30am so it is always possible to leave a message.

Parents’ evenings
These will be held on Monday 14th October 4:00-6:30pm and Tuesday 15th October 5-7pm. Please make sure that you have returned the slip to book an appointment to meet your child’s new teacher. If you are not able to make either of these dates, please try to arrange a mutually convenient time with the class teacher before we finish for half term on October 18th.
I’m am pleased to inform parents of children in Y4J that Mrs Jordan is able to attend both evenings, so you will be able to meet her before she starts in school on Monday 4th November.

Cyber-bullying and e-safety
We are holding a workshop on cyber-bullying and e-safety on Monday 25th November from 9:15-10:15am.
There is still time to book places on this – we need to know numbers for refreshments and fire regulations. If you have mislaid the letter please contact the office for a replacement.

Football team
The “B” team had a friendly at home against Great Moor Junior School on Tuesday 8th October. Although they lost 4-0 they put up a good display against particularly strong opposition.
On Tuesday 15th October there is a Cup game against Lower Park Primary, the current Cup holders. The match is once again here at school with a 3:30pm kick-off. It would be great to see you support the team before Parents’ evening appointments!

School Band
Unfortunately Mr Stonehouse, from Bramhall High School, has been off sick this term. This has meant that we have been delayed in getting our band up and running. However, the music teachers have been sorting out some pieces of music with different parts, so Mrs Humphreys and I will start it up on Wednesday,
30th October, at 12:40pm. Children will need to make sure they have their instruments in school on that day.

Thought for the Week
I can be an independent learner

Best wishes,

Miss Sheila Harrison
