Wednesday 10 October 2018 – Parents Evening 5pm – 7pm

Friday 12 October 2018 – Last day of Term

The children have had a very busy week this week. On Wednesday, the Chairman of Kent County Council visited the school and thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the pupils and staff in their classrooms throughout the morning. On Thursday the local MP, Charlie Elphicke, visited the children after a request from our Pupil Panel members. The children prepared a number of questions for the MP to answer during an assembly. Children wanted to know more about the UN Convention and the Rights of the Child, as well as the 17 Global Goals. They also wanted to know what the government is doing about pollution, the environment and the plight of children who live in poor conditions and war zones. Mr Elphicke then looked around the school, led by some Pupil Panel children. Both visiting groups gave some extremely positive feedback which our pupils were delighted with. Well done everybody!

School Lockers

Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

After school clubs will be running from Monday 10 September 2018.  If you would like to your child to attend, please contact the school office.  

Monday - Multi-Sports for Years 1 - 6

Tuesday - Take Action for Years 2 - 6

Wednesday -  Gymnastics for Years 2 - 6

Thursday - Football for Years 2 - 6

Information

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

Book Swap

We have a book case in the school office which is for you to come and take a look. If you see a book you like you may take it and all we ask is that you replace it with a book of your own that you have already read for someone else to enjoy.

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
