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)

 

Royal Wedding themed lunch

Yesterday all the children enjoyed their ‘high tea’ to celebrate the royal wedding. Children feasted on a variety of sandwiches, sausage rolls, party crudités and crisps followed by butterfly cakes, jelly or assorted biscuits. The hall looked lovely, decked out with Union Jack bunting and balloons and children all wore their ‘Harry and Meghan’ crowns for the occasion!

We hope the happy couple have a brilliant day tomorrow.

 

End of SATs week for Y6

Y6 have all worked incredibly hard and they finished their final SAT test on Thursday. As a treat today, they have had lots of lovely activities this morning and then gone swimming this afternoon. Well done to everyone in Y6 for all their hard work this year!

 

Health and safety around the school grounds

Unfortunately, there has been another accident outside school on Wednesday this week, where a child was knocked down by a car. Luckily he wasn’t injured by the accident, but it demonstrates just how important it is to be extra vigilant when entering or exiting the school premises at busy times.

We have contacted our PCSO to request some additional support and we do teach children how to cross the roads safely, but it would certainly help if parents could reinforce this message at home.

Please could we also ask parents to ensure they keep children close to them when near busy roads and to take particular care around ice cream vans or other distractions.

Please could we ask motorists to drive slowly and to take particular care around the school area.

It is our top priority to keep our children safe and we need the support of the whole school community to significantly reduce the likelihood of another accident. Thank you for your help in this matter.

 

New to Reception parents evening

We are looking forward to meeting the parents and carers of children who will be joining school in September this Tuesday (22nd). The evening will start at 6.30pm and parents will be able to hear about what goes on in our school, find out who their child’s class teacher will be and see their child’s classroom. It will also be a lovely opportunity to sample school dinners and meet some of the other staff.
