PTA Meeting and some start of year reminders.

I would like to thank the people that attended yesterday’s PTA Meeting. It was lovely to see some new faces, as well as the regular participants. They have already arranged their next meeting, which will take place next Tuesday (17th September) at 14.00. This will be to discuss plans for our proposed Halloween/ Firework Party. You might want to put the date (Saturday 19th October) in your diary as it is a party not to be missed.

The PTA kindly asks you to complete the form they sent home in your child’s Blue Bag, and to return it to school by Friday at the latest, as this will help them with their plans.

Whilst thinking about returning letters and forms to school. Could I please ask you to give these to your child(ren)’s teacher rather than directly to Dominique. This makes it easier for Dominique, as she receives the letters from one class together and also means that teachers who can see who has returned forms too.

Please can I take this opportunity to remind you that dogs are not allowed in the school grounds. This is both for safety and hygiene reasons. If you tie your dog to the fence either at the front or back of school, please can you make sure that they are well away from the gates, so that people are not frightened to walk in past them. Thank you.

At the end of the school day we ask children not to play on the playground equipment until the bus children and their drivers have left the playground. This is to ensure the safety of the children. Please help Kelly (whose job it is to remind the children not to play on this area) by asking your children to stay with you until she has seen the bus driver leave.

On Friday afternoon our team of ‘Head Lice Mums’ will be coming in to school to check the children for head lice. As you know these can spread very easily in schools, and we try to prevent this happening by checking the children regularly. Please also help us reduce the chances of this happening by ensuring that long hair is tied up everyday and by using the correct shampoo if you are informed that your child has head lice.

Thank you very much for your support and understanding with each of these matters. As always, if you have any questions about any of them, please do not hesitate to ask.

Best Wishes,

Mandy Porrett
