Year 6 Induction Day – Bramhall High School
A separate note was sent out yesterday giving details of Thursday’s Induction Day at Bramhall High School.

Summer Fair
Friday, 3rd July is a non-uniform day. Could you please bring in either a bottle, cakes for the cake stall or items for the tombola.

Year 6 Residential Trip – Glaramara
A leaflet giving details of the above trip is being sent out tonight.

Attendance
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.

Skipping Ropes
Due to the popularity of the skipping ropes we have extended the deadline to buy one from the School Office until Friday, 3rd July.

Sports Day
Many thanks to everyone who came to support the children last Friday.
We were fortunate that the rain held off and the children were able to complete their activities.
I am always so impressed with the way the children work together at this event and I thought our Year 6s were excellent team leaders, looking after the younger children and encouraging their teams throughout.
Mrs Watts will inform the children as to the winners on Wednesday morning in assembly.
A number of suggestions around communication and organisation have been passed on to me and I will ensure that we look to improve certain areas for next year.

Year 5s and mobile phones
As we approach the end of another academic year, I know that many Year 5 parents start to allow their children some independence in making their own way to and from school. If you have decided to let your child walk by themselves, please could you ensure that the class teacher knows.
Mobile phones are NOT allowed in school but we understand that parents will feel happier if they know that their child has one when walking independently. The Year 6s already hand their phones in at the start of the day and any Year 5s who have one need to ensure that it is handed in to their class teacher on arrival at school. The phones will be locked away securely and handed back at the end of the day.
Only children who are walking independently in Years 5 and 6 have reason to have a phone in school.

North Park Road
Could I remind you and the children to cross with the Lollipop Lady on North Park Road as it was reported last week that a child was nearly knocked over after running out between two parked cars.
