Dear Parents / Carers,

Welcome back. It was great to see everyone return to school on Wednesday morning with smiling faces, from the Mums as well as the children! Everyone had a really good first day back but, as always, we are happy to see you if you have any concerns either now or throughout the year. There is a lot planned for this year and the start is particularly busy so read on for more information…

Community and RE Week starts Monday 8th September

The children will be learning about different countries during this week but we also have an exciting number of visitors coming into school. This includes visitors from the Council to talk about the services they provide. On Wednesday 10th, between 2:00 and 4:00 we would like you to join us when you will be able to find out more about what the council can do for you. The event will hopefully include a visit from the Mayor  and will be held in our Dance Studio. Please come along. Refreshments will be served in the library.

School Uniform

Please make sure your child has a full PE kit. Every child will need their kit every day for the week beginning the 15th September. School shoes should be black. Sandals should be safe to run in without falling over. Sandals (with socks) should be plain in colour, white, black or tan.

No decorative tattoos please and only stud earrings. Please make sure your child does not wear nail varnish or false nails.Thank you.

Sports Week starts on Monday 15th September

Mr Bishop has arranged for a full week of events for all year groups. Lots of new activities to try and exciting things to do! Make sure your child has their PE kit in school every day, they won’t want to miss out!

Rewards

We will continue with Good to be Green again this year. Your child will lose their end of term reward if they miss 7 days. Check with them and their teacher to make sure they don’t miss out.

We are introducing the Glebefields OSCARS this year. There are 10 categories and the best children in each class from year 1 to year 6 will be picked out each half term until May. One child will be picked from the 5 names in each category. The selected children will be invited to an OSCAR evening at the end of term with their parents. Certificates, trophies go to all invited children plus £25 to each of the category winners. Categories are; reading, writing, maths, musician, artist, sports person, humanitarian, environmentalist, team player and contributor.

Attendance

I will go through the attendance figures every Friday night to monitor how well each child is doing. We did hit the Government’s target of 95% last year and I would really like to make sure that we manage at least the same for this year.

I would also like to change the reward system so that it includes more families (more information to follow).

I hope we won’t have to resort to court action for persistent absenteeism but I will take this course of action if I have to. Every child deserves to have the same chances to build strong friendships be successful at school. Poor attendance negatively affects their life chances.

Leading Parent Partnership Award

We want to work effectively in partnership with all our parents and we are using this award as a starting point to reflect on and improve our practice. We need some volunteers to join a working party to look at what we do and what we could do better.

If you are interested please let Chris know.

School Photographs

The new photography firm will be in school on Tuesday 16th of September. The arrangements will be the same as last year except that the photographs will be taken in the Reading Area in the front entrance and the Staffroom. Parents will have space to wait in the library and the front entrance. This is a little difficult this year as the dance studio and hall are being used for sports week. More information to follow.

Please complete, sign and return the information forms to allow your child to go on local visits as soon as possible. Some children may be going out during Community Week and Sports Week.
