Welcome back

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back to school - I hope you all had a good summer.  I've had a 'tour of the school' and visited all the classrooms and the children have settled in really well - so many smiley faces.  I can tell we're going to have a excellent year.


The teachers and I had a great training day yesterday, working on how we teach Oracy, Maths, Reading, Writing and how we manage behaviour.  It was a busy day and we have lots of plans in place.


We've had a busy summer too with lots of work happening.  The cleaners have done a thorough deep clean.The final stage of the roof being re-laid is now completed so fingers crossed for no more leaks.  We've got new signs and art work up inside and outside of school with the new motto 'Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day'.  We've had two walls blocked up and new doors put in the infant hall, which look really lovely and help with the acoustics in there.  Finally, the external lower UPVC on the windows have been painted and look much smarter.  Our caretaker, Stewart Mackay, has been sorting the grounds out too and I hope you agree there is a big improvement. A big thank you to all involved for their hard work.


Class Dojo

Class Dojo is up and running and you should now be able to operate it as normal and be with the new class teacher.  Year 1 children have been entered on the system and shortly Year 1 carers will receive a letter to let you know how to log in and get signed up.


A reminder that Class Dojo messaging should only be used for minor messages.  If you have any matters that need to be responded to with more urgency or that are more important, you should either come in or telephone school to make an appointment to discuss this properly.  We've sometimes had parents message something and teachers are busy teaching during the day and don't see it until the end of the day when it is too late.  


Book Journals

Each child in Year 3 to 6, and eventually Year 2s, have got a new Book Journal to record Book Club.  We have designed these books ourselves and we would like the children to take care with them and look after them - we are looking for beautiful presentation this year.  They should bring them between school and home each day.  If a child loses their Book Journal or really damages it, parents will be charged £3 to replace it.  The Book Journal is designed to last all year with a double page per week.


Don't forget to join in with our Inspire afternoons, the dates have been resent to you today and they are also on the website.  As we book events in for the year they will be added to the website, so please keep checking the calendar on here.


Best wishes


Anna Cvijetic - Headteacher
