Value of the Month Honesty 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! Attendance 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. Homework 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.

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. Headlice 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 complete). 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.
