Westgate Primary School

Friday Letter

Friday 14th June 2019


 

Non-uniform Day

Last Friday, the children all looked great in their own choice of clothes and really seemed to enjoy wearing them in school. Many, many thanks for all your fantastic donations for next week’s Summer Fair, Mrs Purcell is delighted with the quantity and quality of the goods she has seen this morning and wanted to pass on her own personal thanks. Don’t forget to keep on returning any unsold raffles tickets into school.

The Fair takes place on next Friday, 21st June and we are crossing our fingers for some lovely weather! If anyone would like to help on a stall at the fair, or contribute in any other way, please ring up school and ask to speak to Mrs Purcell.  Mrs Purcell would also like to send a plea to any bakers out there – she would love them to bake cakes for the Summer Fair, but obviously, these would need to be sent into school on the day of the Fair.

 

Race For Life

Next week is Westgate's first ever 'Race for Life Week' so we thought we would share the link for our 'Just Giving Page'. We are delighted that lots of children have been working hard already to fill in their sponsorship forms, but here is another way you can donate. Follow the link and give what you can. THANK YOU! https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/westgate-1 Also, please look out for the letter that came home earlier this week, which gave you all the arrangements for the week. We can't wait to see you there!

 
 

Lost Property

The school has again acquired a large amount of lost property. There are many different unclaimed items that we would like to return back to the rightful owners! On Wednesday 19th June, we will be displaying all lost items in the hall after school for you to come and take away. Any unclaimed items after this date will be sent to local charity shops so please try and make it if you can.

Sporting News

On Wednesday, Westgate’s athletic team took part in the Lancaster and Morecambe annual competition. As ever, the children showcased their fantastic athletic talents and made Westgate proud. All the children who took part put 100% effort into their events and Westgate qualified for various finals. A special mention must go to Paige Burgess who broke the Year 3 record for shot putt and received a gold medal! Many other children also earned medals in their events and, as a result, Westgate came 4th overall. Well done to all the children involved as well as the parents for their support on the side of the track. Finally a big thank you to Miss Dalton who took the time to organize this for our school. Photos of the event can be seen on the school Facebook Page.

 KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE !!!

 

Dear Parents,

 On Tuesday of this week, at around 7.45 am, a vehicle in the Children’s Centre car park narrowly missed hitting a young child walking through the car park with their parent. We want to avoid any accidents on the school site at any time of the day. Consequently we will make sure the pedestrian gates are both open as early as possible to reduce the numbers walking through the Children’s Centre car park.

 We would be very grateful for your assistance in keeping the school site safe by considering the following actions:

 

  • Park outside on the road and walk in through one of the pedestrian gates
  • Do not use the Children’s Centre car park as a short cut to the Children’s Centre main entrance – walk up to the school entrance and turn right along the perimeter of the car park
  • Do not park in the bay reserved for disabled parking
  • During the dark mornings wear something light or reflective
  • Breakfast Club parents park on the school car park to reduce traffic on the Children’s Centre car park (which is much smaller)
  • Drive very slowly on the school site even though you may be pushed for time – be very aware there could be small children around

 Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our children, and their parents, safe and sound.

 If there are further incidents like this our only option will be to consider closing the car parks to any vehicles during the early morning period.

 

Regards

S.W.Robinson (Headteacher)
