Newsletters from the Head

January 2018

From the Head Teacher

May I begin by wishing you a very happy New Year.  I hope that you had a very happy and peaceful break over the Christmas holiday period.

The Spring Term is traditionally the quietest of the school year. There will nonetheless be many things going on. Details of the after-school clubs which will be sent out today and the clubs will commence in the week beginning 15th January.

In order to ensure that parents are informed more regularly about their child’s progress at school, for the first time, in January, we will be sending out short reports.  We have also arranged for a drop–in session on Wednesday, 21st February from 3.10pm – 5.00pm to provide an opportunity for you to look at the work books together with your child.

Parent consultation evenings will take place on Wednesday 14th, Thursday 15th, Wednesday 21st and Thursday, 22nd March.  An appointment letter will be sent out after Half Term.  If you have any concerns and wish to see your child’s class teacher before this date please do not hesitate to make an appointment through the School Office.

The planning for International Week (26th February – 2nd March) is underway and details and requests for help will be sent out very shortly. There will be a special evening event on Thursday, 1st March, so please make a note of this in your diary.

As I have mentioned previously, we have not had to close the School due to bad weather for the past few years.  However, this has not always been the case. Our immediate concern in the event of snow is for the welfare of the children travelling to and from the School; it is also significant that the majority of the teaching staff travel some distance to get to work. For both of these reasons if snow and ice make driving dangerous the decision may be taken to close the School for the day. If you suspect this may be a possibility please check for a text alert message from the School, consult the School website where a message will be posted as soon as any decision to close is made, or listen to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire or Heart 103 for an update. Hopefully, the weather will remain fairly mild and there will be no need to take this action.

I look forward to a happy and successful term ahead.
