Pupil Voice

Pupils in Arc de Triomphe were asked what they have been learning about this week in their writing and this is what they said….

Hayden said, “We have been writing a letter to Charlie Elphicke for his help to stop air pollution.  We told him about article 24 which is our right to clean water and air.  We would like him to come into school and inform us how is going to help stop air pollution.  We can help by planting more trees and making more electric cars.”

Dennis said, “We have been writing to Mr Charlie Elphicke to ask for his help.  We are going to walk around Aycliffe and measure the air.  We would all really like him to come into school and talk to us about how we can all help stop air pollution.”

Leah said, “We have been writing letters to Charlie Elphicke telling him about the A20 and all the Lorries that stop there with the engines on.  All that air pollution is coming into Aycliffe and making peoples Asthma worse.  It can also cause skin cancer.”

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.

School Uniform

Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.

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

School Angel fund raising

PE Kits

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.
