Charity News
A staggering £421 was raised for Mencap with the collection of 5p pieces. Well done everyone. Mrs Waite

Dogs on Premises
Dogs are not allowed to go on school premises

PE Bags
The school have PE bags for sale that won't fall off coat hooks. They are available after school each day priced £3.

Lost Property
There is a huge amount of lost property in the bin in the entrance hall. Please come and see if there is anything that belongs to you. Unclaimed items have to be disposed of each half term, as we have no facility for storage. Named items are returned to their owners weekly.

PE Kits
Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school each day. PE kit:- White T -shirt, navy blue shorts, socks, plimsolls/trainers, tracksuit for outside games (KS2)

Please ensure that your child is wearing black, sensible shoes to school. We will ask children to change their shoes if we consider that they are likely to endanger their or others safety. Children are hot permitted to wear jewellery at school apart from watches and small stud type earrings.

Yet again we have to report that there are several cases of headlice in all areas of the school. If we notice headlice, we always inform parents by telephone or letter and ask them to commence treatment immediately. We inform all parents by letter when there are incidents in the class in order that they continue preventative treatment i.e. daily combing. Suitable combs are available from the school office or local chemist. Treatment MUST be I!given before children with headlice are allowed to return to school. The school nurse will contact parents of those observed at school and speak to them personally. If you would like further information, please contact Morley Street Clinic tel.: 267338.

Toys in School
There are occasions when children like to bring toys and artifacts to school from home. Please do not allow them to bring anything precious as teachers can not spend time looking for lost items or sorting out arguments. We would also prefer it if they did not bring large items, as we do not have suitable storage.

Health and safety
Please ensure that you observe the NO PARKING signs. If it is essential that you use your car to bring and/or collect your child, please park away from the school. Walking a few steps may save a child's life. Please do not wait or use the corridors as a thoroughfare as this causes congestion and is a potential danger to children as they move around the school building. All Key Stage 1 children will use the Key Stage 1 playground to enter and exit the building. All Key Stage 2 children will use the School Lane entrance to enter and exit the building. The main entrance to the school is from Chiltington Way for visitors and parents during school hours.

Mobile telephone
Please do not allow your child to bring mobile telephones into school.

End of School Day
Please do not allow children to ride scooters or bikes on the KS 1 playground at the end of the school day. There are 180+ children leaving school at that time plus parents and toddlers -scooters and bikes are a hazard to their safety .We would also ask that parents with toddlers do not allow them to play on the field or to disturb classes as teaching continues until 3.00pm for Key Stage land 3.10 pm for Key Stage 2.
