Weekly email - sent Friday 11th October

Dear All
We hope that Year 5 enjoyed their PE festival on Tuesday. Year 4 sent a team along to the Davenies Superstars event on Tuesday afternoon - the staff at Davenies commented that the weather wasn’t kind, but the indoor plan worked and all pupils engaged fully and had fun. Our football team had their first game of the season on Thursday. Our Sports Council reps have written sports reports which are being added to our new Sports Council blog
Anti Bullying Awareness Week - this year we will be supporting the Anti Bullying Alliances Odd Sock Day on Tuesday 12th November. More details are available on their website here  We will also be holding a range of activities in school during this week on an Anti Bullying theme. Please note this is an awareness day only and not a fundraising event.
Accident-Free in CSG - it is great to see most of you parking away from Parsonage Road and not obstructing driveways in Hillside Close and Lagger Close. Keep up the good work of setting a good example to your children. 
Menu changes - St Joseph's have reviewed their fish dishes on Fridays and have revised the menu to include improved allergen information, new product availability and changes to existing availability of products. The revised menu is available on the website here as will the most up to date allergen information sheets dated 11th October 2019.

Junior School Homework Email Addresses - each class in the Junior School has an email address to use to send in electronic versions of homework. These are only for sending in homework and no emails will be replied to so please do not use these addresses to communicate with staff.

Pick Up Arrangements - just to clarify that if a person is on your list of people nominated to collect your child, there is no need to advise the school office on the day as long as your child is aware who is picking them up. If you would like to add anyone on to your nominated list, please email the school office.
Year 5 - Beech class have a survival session in their swimming lesson next week - please can they bring in usual swimming kit plus long sleeved top and long bottoms - ie. pyjamas or a two piece or long sleeved t-shirt with long bottoms. Clothing should be easy to take off in the water not jeans or joggers please as they soak up too much water - plus pack a spare bin bag to put wet clothing in to bring home.
