Dear Parents,

A short week has come to a close with our World Book Day celebrations. I always enjoy guessing the characters the pupils have dressed themselves as, indeed, the teachers too! This year was no exception, with some very impressive characters on display. The book fayre was a huge success and we must thank Costa Blanca books not only for the fayre, but also for their kind donation of books to add to our school collection. With our continued reading initiative, Drop Everything And Read, everyone in the school read their favourite books at 11am today – great stuff.

Earlier in the week, our older pupils began their mock examinations, so I am sure you will join me in wishing them the best of luck.

 

Coronavirus Updates

As you all know, information and news regarding the spread of the virus has been changing daily. So far, at the time of writing, we have not had any updates since my last communication on the subject to you and there have not been any reported cases in our region. Even so, I thank you for your patience in this matter, particularly in the cancellation of certain trips, which I know have been a huge disappointment to our pupils. Of course, we are continuing to monitor the situation and have our contingency plan in place should the need arise.

 

New Ingress and Egress procedures in the Infants block

Thank you to all our parents for their feedback so far. It seems that this new initiative has been working extremely well and the children are enjoying their shorter walk to reach their classroom. As I mentioned previously, we will continue this trial until the end of term and monitor.

 

GDPR – AUDIOVISUAL CONSENT 

A further reminder that we still have a number of parents who have not completed our annual audiovisual consent form for this academic year 2019-2020.  Without this permission, we are not allowed to post our fantastic sports and music events, on our social media. If you would like to give your consent, please complete the google form as soon as possible by clicking here (if you have not already done so).

 

WATER BOTTLES

A further reminder please to ensure your child comes to school with their own water bottle every day.  This is especially important in our effort to reduce the usage of plastic cups in the school. We will be issuing KS2 pupils with their own cups soon in our continued effort to reduce plastic waste.
