First Newsletter of the Summer Term from Mrs Driver

Dear Parents,

Welcome back! Hasn’t it been lovely to see some sunshine throughout the holiday? I hope you have all had a lovely time! Hopefully the weather will continue to warm up and we will be able to enjoy a summer term full of all our usual outside activities!

There are lots of exciting projects planned for this term and we will keep you up to date with all the events on Twitter and on the school website. Please keep an eye on both of these to find out what is happening. Don’t forget we will also be using Twitter to remind you about club activities. We would also ask that you help us in trying to make your children more independent. Please encourage them to remember all their belongings for school, there shouldn’t be a need for parents bringing PE bags to school!

Thank you to all of you who completed our online survey, as soon as we receive any analysis of the data provided we will share it with you all.

Once again we are collecting tokens through the various schemes – the Tesco and Sainsbury’s vouchers provide us with a whole host of new materials we would not otherwise be able to buy. Please accept any tokens for schools you are offered, we are bound to make use of them!

Please keep the fete date – 7th June 2014 – firmly fixed in your mind and watch out for the letters coming out asking for different items. This is our main fund raising event for the year and we do rely very heavily upon parental involvement. Speak to any member of the SPA if you would like to offer your services! However, before that on Saturday 10th May, we are participating in the Joint Schools Summer Fete. Please come along and support the fete, held on Hitchin Town Market Place. Our school choir are singing and we are running the bowling alley so please come along and support us! It is open from 10.00am – 2.00pm.

Please ensure your children are in school on time in the morning. The gates open soon after 8.30am and the bell goes at 8.45am. Anyone after this time is seen as late. We know it is not always the pupils’ fault but we do feel that punctuality is an important life skill, so please help the children by making sure they are in school on time. Any late comers need to be signed in at the school office.

I look forward to welcoming you into school at one of the many events planned for the summer term and don’t hesitate to come in and see us if you have any concerns.

Yours sincerely

Mary Driver
