From the Head Teacher

Welcome to the new school year and a very special greeting to those of you who are joining us for the first time. The BSA are holding a Coffee Morning for new parents at 9.05am this Friday, 7th September. This will provide an opportunity for parents to meet and to get to know others in the same situation, and also to chat to those who have been involved with the School for some time.

Work on the back corridor and Main Hall roof has been taking place during the Summer break and, although the work will continue for the next few weeks, the hall is now back in use.

Our teacher-led after-school clubs will start in the week commencing 17th September and will run until 30th November.

During the next few weeks the new School Council will be elected and, as in previous years, their first job will be to select the charity that Bourn Primary will support this year. Following a homework task each class will nominate one charity and the Council will then have the final say. We will let you know the outcome in due course.

The ‘Essential Guide to the Year Ahead’ meeting for all parents, will take place on the evening of
19th September. Refreshments will be served in the Main Hall from 7.15pm, before a short introduction. Parents will then be invited to the classrooms to hear information about the curriculum, to find out more details of the school day and of course to have the opportunity to ask questions. This meeting is for parents only. Parent consultation evenings are scheduled for just before half term, when you will have the opportunity to discuss your child in detail with their Class Teacher.

Finally, the biggest fund raising event of the year, ‘Bourn to Run’, will take place on Sunday 23rd September: now only 3 weeks away. We are hoping that a record number of Bourn Primary pupils and parents will take part in the 3k run/walk, including our new members of Class Acorn.

We look forward to working in partnership with all our parents. If you have any concerns, no matter how small they may be, please do not hesitate to contact the Class Teacher, our Assistant Head Teachers, Mrs Culley and Mrs Wheatman, or me. I look forward to an exciting term ahead.

Kind regards

Christine Page

Head Teacher
