WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK
Don’t forget this week is ‘Walk to school’ week.
Please can we inform parents that chewing gum or bubblegum is not permitted in school.
The local education authority are asking to be informed if any pupil, staff or family members have been to Mexico since the beginning of April. It is part of their process to identify potential location hot-spots. If your child or family members have been to Mexico please can you inform the office. Thank you.
We are still short of helpers for swimming lessons which are due to start on Monday 1 June. If you are able to help with any of the following sessions please see the class teacher directly.
Without enough helpers the children will be unable to use the pool.

ADVICE TO PARENTS ABOUT ONLINE FORUMS
There are a number of websites aimed at children (including one called ‘mushi monsters’) which include FORUMS. A forum allows users of the site to exchange messages. This is obviously open to abuse from older children or even adults. Sites like this are blocked in school through our County Broadband filter. Our advice is that you need to be aware of the websites your children use and perhaps use the parental restriction facility that most home computers do have.
We have found a pair of pale blue framed children’s glasses on the field. If you think they may belong to your child, please pop into the office to claim them.
