********** SCHOOL CLOSURES DUE TO BAD WEATHER ************

Please remember to listen to BBC Suffolk Radio (103.9FM), or check on our School BLOG or at http://schoolclosures.suffolk.gov.uk/ (Primary Schools)
Thank you for your support during yesterday’s closure, the decision was not made lightly, and I would like to reassure parents that decisions to close are only ever a last resort.

As mentioned last term, choir is now up and running as we have a new volunteer adult (from the Phoenix Singers) who has kindly given up her time to help support the choir.  Not many children turned up last Wednesday – just 2! - so please can we remind all those who were in Choir at the beginning of last term to come along this Wednesday.  Thank you.
Art work should be on the theme of “Magical Moment”, using any medium except bulky collage, no larger than A3 size and must not be mounted or laminated.  The entry must be accompanied by a minimum donation of £2.00 for Cancer Research UK, and the child’s name, year and school name must be printed clearly on the back.  Selected entries will be included in an exhibition at the Peter Pears Gallery in Aldeburgh from 8 - 10 March 2013.  To have exhibited artwork returned it will need to be purchased at the Gallery. 
Please hand all entries in to our school office by morning of Thursday 24 January.

HEADLICE HELP FOR PARENTS – Thursday 7 February 2013
We are all aware that Head Lice are regular visitors to schools, and we are no exception.  Some classes this year have been unable to shift the problem. 
We have recruited the help of the local Child Health Advisor, from the School Nursing team who has offered to come and run a parent session to offer information, help and advice.  We would like initially to run this for any parents of KS1 and Foundation. 
The date will be Thursday 7 February at 2.30pm in the upstairs computer suite.
The session will be informal and will last only 30 minutes, but we hope it will give parents the support they need to deal with any future outbreaks. 
Please just sign in at the office on the day.

We have a vacancy for a relief midday supervisor, to be called on when other staff are unable to work.  The hours are 12pm – 1.20pm Mondays to Fridays as required, the rate of pay is £6.38 per hour.  Please contact the office for an application form (01728 723354).

We have been informed by St Michael’s Church that a child’s silver bracelet was found in Church on Christmas Eve following the Nativity Play.  If this is yours please either let the office know, or speak to the Holy Horrors leaders on a Wednesday after school.
