It has been lovely to see all our pupils return to school after the summer break full of stories about their holiday adventures and eager to share them with us all. The first week fairly “whizzed” by and I can report that our new school members, both teachers and pupils seem to be settling in happily.
FUND RAISING WITH BULBS
This fundraising venture gives parents the opportunity to purchase bulbs to plant this Autumn for Spring flowering. We use a company called ‘The Bulb Man’ who are very efficient. For every £11.75 sold the school receives £3.33 commission – which we spend on plants and bulbs to brighten the school grounds. You may wish to ask family and friends if they would like to place an order too, and we have extra copies of the bulb catalogue at the School Office – so please do ask for extras! Cheques should be payable to the school. ALL ORDERS HAVE TO BE RETURNED TO THE SCHOOL BY FRIDAY 12 SEPTEMBER and the bulbs arrive on Tuesday 14 October.
It would be very helpful if all cheques that come into the school should be made payable to ‘Framlingham Sir Robert Hitcham’s CEVAP School’ - apart from school lunch cheques (paid to Suffolk County Council) and photographs.
Could I remind parents that it is not possible for you to use the staff car park at any time, but Governors will give permission for parents who have disability badges to use our car park. May I please ask parents not to park outside the Bicycle Shop at the end of our drive due to the increased danger and congestion this causes to an already busy area at the rear of the school, and would ask you to park in the Elms Car Park if bringing children to school by car. Your co-operation is much appreciated.
LEAVING THE SCHOOL PREMISES AFTER THE START OF SCHOOL
It is really important to us that our pupils settle happily and quickly at the start of school. Learning activities and the register start immediately at 8.50am. Could we ask parents to vacate the premises as soon as possible after the school bell indicates the beginning of lessons at the start of the school day. If parents stay in the activity areas, corridors, or playground the children find it harder to settle.
HEALTH & SAFETY
Could parents with younger children note that they must not be allowed to play on the old log in the front playground or the climbing frame, as we are not insured for non-pupils outside school hours.
