The first week back

We have reached the end of the first week and it has been a fabulous one. It was great to see everybody back again and the children have settled into their new classes really well. You should have received a copy of the new BEPS School Guide on Wednesday. Please read this carefully as there is some important and useful information in it. If, for any reason, you have not received a copy of this document, Dominique can provide you with one.

As you already know, on Tuesday 9th September we will have our Meet the Teachers evening. This will begin at 18.00 when Pascale will welcome you. You will then have the opportunity to attend one of the two meetings that the class teachers will give. These will run from 18.10 – 18.40 and then again from 18.50 – 19.20. Class teachers will meet with you in their classrooms.

You will have seen that the playground has already progressed since school started. We are happy to tell you that the first company has finished their work and that the second company can now begin. They will replace the playground equipment and lay the rubber surface under it. We will be able to send you more information next week. Could we ask you to remind your children not to walk on the raised area behind the sandpit and jump into it, because it isn’t safe. The plants that are there also need the chance to grow.

We are very happy to see that the arrangements for the morning are working well and that the children are adapting to the new routine very well. We would like to ask for your support with ensuring that all the children are reunited with their parents/carers at the end of the day. In order to make this run smoothly, please will you wait for your children in the playground and collect them from their usual lining up area, rather than then they are walking there. To ensure that the teacher knows they have said goodbye to each child they will shake your child’s hand before sending them to you. Standing behind the red line on the playground will help us at this time. Thank you for your support in this important part of the school day.

We have introduced our new Golden Rules to the children and hope that you will reinforce these with them at home.

Important dates:

Tuesday 9th September – Meet the teachers 18.00 – 19.30

Saturday 13th September – Welcome Picnic 11.00 – 14.00

We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday morning.

Best Wishes,

The Leadership Team
