SEPTEMBER 2009 NEWSLETTER
WELCOME BACK JIHIHJJHHHHK A very warm welcome back to school to all pupils and their families. We hope that you have had a refreshing break and are looking forward to the year ahead and the challenges that will be faced during the next three terms. Please note that the first ‘Wall of Fame’ assembly’ will be next week on Friday 11th September at 9.00am. We hope to see you there.
PUPIL INFORMATION DETAILS It is important that we have the most up to date details on your child /children as possible. This particularly comes to light when trying to contact parents during an emergency, particularly as mobile phone coverage in this area isn’t great. The more points of contact that we have, the better, so please could you complete the contact details form and return to the school office – thank you.

HOT DINNERS We would be extremely grateful if school meals could be ordered and paid for on Mondays. This will enable us to keep a greater control on numbers and make the whole service more efficient. If you could include payment, covering the number of days (and what days they are having a meal) of the week that your child is having a meal it would be greatly appreciated. There is a slip available from outside the office to fill in with your child’s choices. Also in the entrance area is a copy of the three week cycle of menus that are on offer. The current cost of a school meal is £1.90.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS We are planning to start our after school clubs the week beginning 14th September. It is planned to provide football, netball and gymnastics this term with a likely reintroduction of Spanish. Further details will follow next week...
