Dear Parents / Carers,

Enclosed are the diary dates for this term so that you know what events are happening before Easter.

If you need to know more about anything going on in school please pop in to ask any of the staff who will be happy to help or guide you to someone who can answer your questions.

New National Curriculum

The government have introduced a new national curriculum. It has raised the expectations for every year group and focused what children need to learn back to the basics such as spelling, handwriting and number facts.

Some elements of the old curriculum have been removed and lots of new things have been added. This means that most children in the school are currently behind where the new curriculum says they should be because they have not needed to know these new facts before.

The staff are doing everything they can to help the children to catch up to these new expectations and over the next two years we will be offering further information and meetings so that you can find out more about what your child is being taught and how you can help their learning.

The information sheets you will get on parent’s evening will introduce you to the expectations. We know this information will need further explanation but this is a starting point for you to understand the new expectations.

School Uniform

Please make sure your child wears school uniform and that their uniform is named. If your child brings home another child’s uniform by mistake could you please return it to school. Thank you for your co-operation.

Parent’s evening.

Some teachers will be running parent’s evening over two nights this year. Sheets to sign up for an appointment time will be going onto classroom doors and windows from tomorrow. We will be handing out information about the new curriculum so please make sure you attend to discuss your child’s progress and targets.

Attendance

The current school attendance figure is 94.86%. Lots of the children have been off with sickness and colds this winter and this has really hit attendance. Please get your child into school as often as possible.

We have introduced a new reward club for attendance. Every half term all children from Y1 to Y6 who have 100% attendance for the half term will go into a draw for £20 Asda voucher. This will reward more children for good attendance. Good luck!
