Weekly Bulletin 16th February 2024
Many thanks to all of you who attended our parents’ consultation evening appointments in order to meet with your child’s class teacher earlier this week. Regular contact between home and school is vital in ensuring that we are able to work in partnership to support the progress and development of your child. The staff look forward to working with you over the coming term and implementing the strategies and approaches discussed at parents’ evening.
This week, we have sent the ‘Poverty Proofing the School Day’ survey for parents and carers. Please do take the time to complete this and return it to school. Below is more information about this initiative, I thank you in anticipation for your support.
We have also completed our work with the ‘Eat Smart’ team in order to reduce food waste in school. Our School Council Waste Warriors have collected and weighed the food waste and as a school we have been able to reduce our school plate waste by 25%. Many children have tried new foods and been more aware of the importance of not wasting food. The School Council have a number of actions to help continue the good work and my thanks go to them, Mrs Claydon and the ‘Eat Smart’ team for all their endeavours.
Each week I want to include a ‘snapshot’ of some of the things going on in school. For example, news from our ECO team, Worship group, V.I.P. (Very International People) and SNAG (School Nutrition Action Group). This week our focus is on the work of our V.I.P. (Very International People) and some important visitors we’ve had in school and they have shared an update below.
