Newsletter: 08/02/13


Dear Parents/Carers,

Governor Questionnaire
Thank you to those parents and carers who filled out this questionnaire back in the autumn term.  We have now had the data analysed and as well as this newsletter, your child should be bringing home some of the results of the questionnaire.

Change of Details
Just a reminder that if you have recently bought a new mobile or have recently moved house or changed any home or work contact details, please can you let the office know so they can amend you child’s contact details.

It is vital that we have up-to-date details at all times for emergency purposes.

School Office – Locked Red Box
If you want to leave letters for a class teacher, absence notes, dinner payments, etc there is a locked red box in the office foyer area.  It is checked daily for letters and payments.

Sainsbury Active Kids Tokens and Nestle Cereal Box Tops for Education
We collect year round ‘Box Tops for Education’ off Nestle cereal boxes and from 30th January to the 22nd May we will be collecting Sainsbury ‘Active Kids’ vouchers.  The Nestle tokens buy us books for the school and the Sainsbury tokens buy us PE equipment for the school.

There are boxes for each in the school foyer.  Please get friends, neighbours and relatives to collect for us.  Many thanks.

PTA Easter Hampers
The PTA will be putting together some beautiful Easter hampers again this year to raffle.

Please could you donate items for the hampers by bringing them to the school office from the first day back after half-term (Monday, 18th February).

PTA Car Boot Sale At Bar Hill Primary School (on the school playing field subject to conditions)

Pre booked pitches £6 or £7 on the day [Subject to availability] Forms available from or from the school office.

Lost Property
Today after parents have had an opportunity to look through the lost property, we will be getting rid of all items that are not named.

Please remember that it is important to name all items of clothing that your child brings into school.  The office will send it to the appropriate classroom if it is named.  Named items will never be thrown out.

Holidays In Term Time
Just a reminder that term time holidays will be recorded as an unauthorised absence.  It is important to consider the impact these absences have on your child’s education.

Rabbit Found
Last week a stuffed toy rabbit was found and brought into the office.  If it belongs to your child, please come to the office to collect it for your child.

Finally, I hope you and your children have a lovely half-term break.  We look forward to seeing the children on Monday, 18th February.

Yours sincerely

Lin Whyte Headteacher
