Mr Maksymiw's news w/c 24th October
I hope that you had an enjoyable half term. I also hope that the children have had a chance to ‘recharge their batteries’ ready for the next eight weeks in school. It is always a really busy and exciting half term for the children and staff with the Christmas festivities to plan, organise and, of course, enjoy! We have also got our Year 4 and Year 6 children away on a residential visit in the next couple of weeks. I hope the weather remains fair for them. This week is Parents Evening and the teachers are looking forward to meeting you. It’s a chance to discuss how your child has settled into school and how he/she is getting on with their learning so far. The meeting times have been set at 10 minutes in most classes but there is a little longer for parents with children in Foundation Stage and Year 1. Please try to help the teacher by keeping to your allotted 10 minutes. A further meeting can be arranged if you feel there is more to discuss. We are also asking you to complete a data checking sheet. This contains all the information about your child and other things such as your current contact details. This year the government has asked that schools collect two further pieces of information. The first asks where your child was born and the second asks about his/her nationality. These questions will be included on an additional sheet attached to your data checking sheet. I would really appreciate it if you could complete both forms before you leave the school at the end of Parents Evening. It will save the staff in the office a great deal of time calling you and sending out additional sheets for you to complete. Thank you for your help in this matter. Mark Maksymiw (Headteacher)

Mr Maksymiw's news w/c 10th October
I am asking for contributions for our Harvest Festival assembly which will take place on Friday. Each class will collect donations of fresh produce (fruit and vegetables) as well as packets and tinned goods and make a Harvest basket. This will then be brought to the assembly on Friday before being distributed to Rainbows Hospice and the Carpenter’s Arm. I am sure that you are aware of the amazing work that Rainbows carries out with children, young people and their families both within our community and beyond.
The Carpenter Arms is an organisation that works with men challenged by drug and alcohol addiction. It also gives out food parcels to those who are on benefits and need those extra few parcels to see them through the week.
We have supported both organisations for several years and I know that our donations are always well received. If you can donate something to the Harvest Assembly it will be most appreciated. Thank you.

Mr Maksymiw's news wc 3rd October
I want to give advanced warning about our Parents Evening dates for the Autumn Term. This year the dates are immediately after half term on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (25th, 26th, 27th October) of the first week back. Letters will be sent out this week inviting you to attend a meeting with your child’s teacher. We think that these meetings are very important as they give you an opportunity to discuss how your child has settled into a new school year and address any concerns that you may have. Please make every effort to attend this crucial meeting.
