Just to remind parents that on Thursday 7 February at 2.30pm the School Nursing team will be holding a 30 minute informative session for parents on dealing with the issue of headlice. Please sign in at the office. Thank you.
If your child is off school due to illness, please can we ask that when you leave a message on our answer machine (ideally before 8.30am), that you state the type of illness please:
ie high temperature / been sick / has diarrhoea/ bad cold etc, rather than just saying ‘unwell’.
If you do not state any reason for the absence the office will have to ring you back to establish the reason.Thank you.
We will again be collecting vouchers from Sainsburys, which we can use to exchange for PE or cooking equipment at school.
The collection box will be outside the office from 30 Jan – 22 May.Thank you.

CHICKS IN SCHOOL
The Living Egg Company have provided the school today with all we need to successful hatch some chicks in the classrooms. The children will get many opportunities between now and 15 February to check, watch and handle the chicks.Currently there is an internal webcam on the chicks so they can be viewed from any classroom, but keep an eye on the school website as we may be able to make it accessible outside the school.
