Congratulations to all the children who received certificates in assembly this morning:
Toro, Oliver F, Reece, Libby, Alex, Aidan, Hugo, Megan, Will and Holly J.

The A and B teams are playing at Norbury Hall this Thursday. All supporters are very welcome to attend.

Rights and Responsibilities
While your children are in school we do everything we possibly can to keep them safe and to teach them about respect and the importance of following rules. On our school Code of Conduct we highlight that for every right there is a responsibility that they need to adhere to.
With this in mind we would ask that you model this in your approach to parking sensibly and safely around school, following the rules of the Highway Code and showing respect for other people and their rights.

Unfortunately there are still 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 continue to monitor the situation and have asked for help from the police and traffic wardens.

Parental Engagement Activities

Year 6 – year group assembly by both classes on Thursday 3rd April 9-9:30am in the school hall.

NUT day of strike action
You may have seen in the news that the NUT is planning a day of strike action on Wednesday 26th March.
I am pleased to let you know that both the Infant and Junior Schools will be fully open on that day.

There is a meeting of the Friends in the Infant school hall on Wednesday 26th March at 9am.
Everyone is very welcome to attend.

School Dinners
Thank you to all parents who have adopted the new Dinner System and paid every Monday morning. Regrettably, however, there has been a lapse in payments and the school are now owed £276.60 in unpaid dinner monies. Please may I remind you that Dinner Order Forms are sent home with the children every Friday and they must be returned on Monday morning with the dinner order for that week/term, together with payment.

Best wishes,

Miss Sheila Harrison
