Junior - Weekly email - sent Friday 23rd October

Dear Parents and Carers,

It was very exciting to see all of the children dressed up today as their future selves. We had marine biologists, doctors, teachers, vets, shop keepers and an array of would be footballers, actors and singers. We even had a fairy godmother- thank you Mrs Haynes! Thank you to everyone - it was a great way to end the half term of our work focusing on the wonderful book ‘Here We Are’.  

This term the school has introduced Google Classroom for setting and returning homework. The launch of this platform has gone well and there are now only a very small number of families across both schools who have not accessed it. If you would like further support with accessing Google Classroom please contact the school. Our Remote Learning Policy has now been added to the school website and can be found here

No Smoking / Vaping - Please can we remind all parents that smoking and vaping are not allowed on the school sites.

Pavements around the schools - We have had a complaint about dogs fouling the pavements around the school. I am sure that all of you, who are dog owners, are very responsible but it is important we share the concerns raised. Please continue to keep the children safe by dealing with any mess should your dog foul the pavements. Thank you

Accident Free in CSG - Junior School - It’s still great to see that the majority of people are parking at the playing fields and considerately around the village rather than driving up Parsonage Road. Keep up the good work!

Second hand Trousers Request - If you have good quality, second hand school trousers for children up to the age of 7 the Infant School would love some donations. Please contact the school office if you have any and we can make arrangements for them to be dropped off. We will quarantine these before we pass them on to the Infant School to use them. Thank you
 
Midday Supervisor role - we are looking to recruit midday supervisors on a casual basis. Being on our casual staff list means that we would like to call on you to cover lunch time staff absences or when additional staff may be required. If you or anyone you know may be interested in these positions then please email the School Office.    

Leave of Absence requests - please note that we ask for advance notice of any requests for leave of absence from school. From this date onwards, where children are out of school for external entrance exams, only one day per half term will be authorised for such absences. A polite reminder that only the Head Teacher can decide whether an absence is authorised or not.

School lunches - for those Junior School children who have been invited to take a school lunch it will continue to be packed lunch only for the remainder of this term. There are no current plans to restart hot lunches this term.

Individual photo orders -  contact sheets and login details have been sent home with your child this week. Parents are offered a free delivery to school if the order is placed by 5th November  There will be a delivery charge for all orders placed after this date. All orders that were placed before the order-by date will be delivered to the School on 20th November.
