Dear Parents/Carers
Welcome back after the Christmas break – I hope you and your families had a wonderful
time. May I take this opportunity to wish you (a belated!) Happy New Year on behalf of all
of the staff. Many thanks for your support of all our Christmas activities – your positive
comments about the Class 1 and 2 Nativity performance were very much valued. The
children had a fantastic time at the Pantomime last week – they were a delight to take out
and their enjoyment was clear for all staff to see!
Whole school 96.71%
Class 1 95.95%, Class 2 97.03%, Class 3 97.29% & Class 4 96.58%
Attendance letters for terms 1 & 2 will be sent out shortly. Please also be mindful that
punctuality is as important as attendance. The school is open from 8.50am.
PE kit
Please ensure all children have their PE kits in school at all times. PE is an important part of
the curriculum and the children need the correct kit so that they can achieve their best. We
have no spare kit in school, so children who don’t bring kit will have to take part in lessons
in their outdoor clothes which is not ideal. Please bring it in every Monday morning and
leave in school until Friday.
Please ensure your children do their homework tasks each week – especially reading.
Remember every time they are listened to reading at home they earn a ticket to go in the
end of term draw to win a book to the value of £5.00
Poppy Appeal
Many thanks for your generosity during November’s poppy appeal. We raised a
magnificent £134.87 for the Royal British legion. Our poppies will stay on display until the
end of this school year.

Universal Infant Free School Meals
If your child is in reception year, or years 1 or 2, they
now qualify for a free cooked meal every day. This is
a new government incentive and it would be great if
as many children as possible take advantage of this,
especially as the colder weather will soon be with us.
For more information please speak to Mrs Jenkin in
the school office.
Please ensure that you check your childs hair
regularly for signs of headlice. If you find headlice
or eggs please treat in accordance with the letters
that we send out (copies available upon request).
It is possible to obtain a prescription for
treatment if you take your child to the doctors &
there are live headlice.
We have also been told that a pharmacy can issue
headlice treatments under the ‘Minor Ailments
Scheme’ (there is a form they have for you to
If we do see headlice, we may call you to give you
the opportunity to get the appropriate treatment
so you can treat that evening.
Combing through hair carefully that has
conditioner on it is a good thing to do, as the
conditioner makes the hair slippery so more
difficult for the lice to hold on & can be done daily
between treatments!
We do have some repellent spray for sale in the
school office for £1.
