Dear Parents / Carers,
I hope you all had a lovely summer holiday. We are looking forward to another action packed year at school and the teachers have been working hard this week especially on our new curriculum. The builders have also been working hard, but frustratingly have not managed to finish all of the work on our lovely (but rather old) building! I met with them last week and the scaffold at the front of the school will stay up for a couple of months. The builders will be working during the school day, but not during busy times such as the start and end of the school day. There will be no work at the back of the school when the children are on the playground. We expect no disruption to learning. Please can you continue to come into school as per normal remembering the following:
- Please do not park on the zig-zag lines at the front of school and be mindful not to block Shepherds Lane.
- Please do not walk into the school through the car entrance. Please use the pedestrian entrance to keep children safe.
- Please enter through the side gate (past the scaffolding) where myself and/or Mr Scott will be there to greet you.
- Year 6 will go straight into their class whilst the other classes will line up on the playground.
We welcome Mr Powell and Miss Kiddy to our teaching staff this September. It was great that they were able to come into school last term to meet their new classes. Ms Joannides will also be joining us. She will be working alongside Mrs Myers and Mrs Nicholls in year two, as well as leading Reception Class on a Friday.
There will be a chance for you to meet your child`s teacher after school on Thursday at 3.30pm. On the same day, we will also be selling some books from the library that we have double copies of between 3.15pm and 4.15pm. If you are unable to speak to the teachers face-to-face throughout the year, then you can use class dojo to get in touch. A reminder that I do not use class dojo so if you send messages to me I will not pick them up. I try to be available to meet face-to-face with parents before school most mornings. If I am not free then please speak or e-mail the school office to arrange an appointment.
The school calendar will be able for you to see on the website shortly and you will be able to sign up for clubs on Thursday morning. A polite reminder that breakfast club starts at 7.50am and we will not be supervising children before this time.
The FOGS (Friends of Glemsford School) will be having their AGM on 18th September at 7pm. All parents are welcome to attend.
As ever, if there is anything that you think we can do better at school, please do come and speak to myself or another member of staff.
