School closes for the holidays at 3:20pm on Friday 27th May and reopens on Monday 13th June.

Morning Entrance
Please could I remind parents that children should not be coming into school at the start of the school day through the main entrance before 9 am. If they do they will be marked in as late. They should be using the doors on their corridors or the mobile classroom. These doors are kept open until 9 am and are manned by a member of staff. This is to help ease congestion in the office area. Only after these doors are closed should the main entrance be used.

Parent Helpers
We are always keen for parents to be involved in school. If any parents have some spare time and would like to help and be involved in school please get in touch with me. Any offers of help will be gratefully received.

Glaramara – Year 6 Residential Visit
Outstanding amounts are due by Friday, 27th May for the Year 6 Residential Trip on Wednesday, 13th July to Friday, 15th July. Information booklets with a kit list and further details will be sent out in the next half term.

This week we have received a number of complaints from local residents about parking outside school. Please could we remind you about parking considerably and not blocking driveways when dropping off and collecting your child from school.

Attendance and office times
Please remember that school starts at 8:50am with registers closing at 9am. Any child who arrives after 9am will have that session marked as an “unauthorised absence” and this WILL impact on their overall attendance figure for the term. The office staff work from 8:30am until 4pm (3:30pm on a Friday) and there is an answerphone at all other times so that you can leave a message regarding any absences.

Leave of Absence
Please remember that any requests for leave of absence should be made at least 2 weeks in advance of the start date. Leave of absence will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances.
