Weekly email (sent on Wednesday 19th December)

Dear all

We are delighted to announce that Miss Bowden was married at the weekend and will return to school as Mrs Bannister. I am sure that you will join with me in wishing Mrs Bannister every happiness for the future.
Sadly Mrs Allison will be leaving us at the end of term to take up a new post - she will be working with us one day a week in the spring term so it is only au revoir for now.
Year 6 - the recent practice SAT's papers will be sent home with children in January once they have been through them in class.

Vacancy - we are currently looking for an evening cleaner to join our Junior School cleaning team - details are available here

School Crossing Patroller Vacancy - A school crossing patroller is needed for Chalfont St Giles Village School. We know from experience the best person to recruit a patroller is someone who lives in the local community surrounding a school or who is involved with the school.  It could be a parent, grandparent or neighbour. Do you have a neighbour or know a grandparent who has recently retired that is looking for a part time role in the local area?  We are very flexible and a job share is an option that currently works well at several of our crossing points already. If you are interested or know someone who is – contact Georgina Longley, Crossing Patrol Supervisor on 01494 59669 or email
Recycle Stamps for UK Air Ambulance Services - we will be collecting used stamps to help raise funds for the UK Air Ambulance service next term. Please can any stamps - whether they're British or overseas, new or used - be dropped off at the School Office. All you need to do is cut or carefully tear the stamped corner from any envelope or packet that you receive in the post and send them into the school office. All funds raised will be donated to the Association of Air Ambulances to be distributed equally to all UK Air Ambulance Services
