Issue No: 3
Dear Parents,
I hope you are all well and enjoyed our recent heat wave, although autumn
seems to have arrived now and I’ve even heard we could be seeing snow by the
end of the month!
It was a pleasure to meet some of you Wednesday evening at parents evening
and I look forward to meeting more of you on Monday at our second parents
Those who came Wednesday appeared to be happy with what they were told –
all the children seem to have settled really well into their new year groups with
their new teachers.
Remember if you have any concerns or issues don’t hesitate to come and talk to

I have spoken to the staff and we have decided to change the school rule regarding
earrings. So many of your children have pierced ears that we have decided to allow
earrings to be worn in school.
If you choose to allow your child to wear earrings they must be a small stud for safety
reasons. If your child comes to school in hoops or earrings that dangle they will be
asked to remove them. It is also important that your child covers their earrings for PE
lessons. It would be helpful if you could provide your child with tape for this purpose
but we will keep some at school if it is needed.
I realise this only affects a small number of you but I hope it will alleviate the
problem of having to remove earrings on a daily basis.

Ickleford boys played in a rally at Wishere Dacre a couple of weeks ago
and played really well. They won 4 of their games and drew one.
The girls played against Wishere Dacre yesterday and had a resounding
win 9-0. Excellent playing girls well done. We’ll keep our fingers crossed
for next week!
