Headteacher’s Newsletter – Friday 17th January 2020- Spring 2

After a very long week which included a Magic Road Safety Workshop for the children in Reception and Key Stage 1, visits to Bushey Heath School and an Ofsted inspection everyone was utterly exhausted come Friday. Thank you to everyone who completed the Parent View survey the results were very pleasing on the whole. They can be found at the following link: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/parent-view-results/survey/result/12994/10 Our annual talent show takes place on FRIDAY 31st January between 4:30pm and 7:00pm and tickets cost £3 from the school office. Please make every effort to attend, last year’s show was a great success and raised a lot of money for the school. We look forward to welcoming you.

The word of the week is – CRINKIE WINKIE – A groundless misgiving, or a poor reason for not doing something. (Scots)

TALENT SHOW –  This wonderful event takes place on FRIDAY 31st JANUARY between 4:30pm and 7:00pm. Tickets are priced at £3 and can be purchased through the school office or after school on the playground. If this year’s show is as good as last year’s it will be another spectacular event.

 

 

BEAHVIOUR ON THE SCHOOL PLAYGROUND – Our school is a place of safety and happiness which we want everyone to enjoy. The school community is place where children learn and families are welcomed. We will not tolerate any behaviour which upsets this or challenges the excellent work the school is doing to raise standards. If for any reason you have recourse to find yourself in a situation which you feel challenged or threatened by we want to know. I will always deal with situations appropriately and in a timely fashion and take action where necessary and offer support to all concerned. Please continue to support the school with this very important issue.

 

GENTLE REMINDER – SMILES NOT MOBILES PLEASE WHEN COLLECTING OR DROPPING OFF YOUR CHILD. THANK YOU
