Junior - Weekly email - Friday 28th May

Dear Parents / Carers

What a difference a day makes - beautiful sunshine and promise of more to come over the half term break. I hope you have a good rest over the long weekend and enjoy the family time together. We are looking forward to welcoming all of you back on Tuesday 8th June at our new starting times shared earlier this week.

A copy of this information can be found here.  
 
Covid-19 Reporting - Should your child exhibit symptoms or test positive for coronavirus during the first 3 days of the Half Term break, we ask that you please notify the school on the email address:  covid19reporting@csgvillageschool.org  This email address will be checked regularly, please do not use the office email addresses.

Donations for the Junior School - We would like to thank Mr and Mrs Beer for their very generous donation to the school. Their son Matthew will be leaving year 6 at the end of this academic year. With these funds we will be able to complete the work in the School Hall, replacing interactive boards, laptops and finalise the work on our new sound system funded by the PTA.
 
Laptop Donations to our School  - Over the last year it has been wonderful to be the beneficiary of generous donations which have enabled us to purchase additional laptops so that our pupils' access to IT is really improved. The impact of these donations is seen every day around the school. More children,  individually, in small groups and classes have increased access to IT which ensures that their skills are being developed effectively and quickly. 
 
Last week we received a very kind donation of a new laptop which has now been configured and is ready to use.

 

The laptop was gifted to Franklin Residential from Stephen Brown of SJB Consultancy and his Computers for Schools campaign which has been backed by the foundation Agents Together. Caroline Franklin- Director of Franklin Residential- then selected our school to benefit from a new laptop, for which we are extremely grateful.

 

You can see more about Stephen's campaign in the link above, and you can reach the go fund me page here: Go Fund Me - Computers for Schools

 

Accident Free in CSG - Thank you to those parking at the playing fields and considerately around the village.  

Please avoid parking in Parsonage Road. The area around the turning circle is becoming very dangerous - your children are at risk. Let's all work together to keep them safe.
 
Half Term Travel - If you are travelling overseas during the half term break, please could you inform the School Office where you are going and the date you are returning to the UK. Thank you.
 
Parental Survey - The link to the parent survey is hereThis survey will be open until Tuesday 8th June 2021. The survey is set up to combine several children in one form, but you may complete more than one form if you have children who have differing experiences.
 
Mobile phones in school - a copy of the form to request permission to bring a mobile phone into school is available here
 
Clubs - We can now confirm that we have some externally run clubs starting next half term.
