Dear Parents and Carers,
I was really impressed by the Quiz night – what fun! It was so well organised and run. It was a great night. Thank you to everyone who organised, helped and participated. It was lovely to see so many parents and carers there. I feel lucky to be part of such a committed staff and parent community. Now we have the Winter Fair to look forward to.
Our new Attendance Officer from Hackney, Laurel Theodosiou, visited this week. She will visitng regualrly and checking our registers and attendance. Absence, apart from illness, is unlikely to be authorised unless it is consdered exceptional. Attached to this newsletter is part of our Attendance policy which defines what exceptional circumstances could look like and what will and won’t be authorised. The full policy can be found on the school website. We currently have excellent attendance and are looking forward to this continuing. Thank you for supporting us with this.
This week we have been talking about being kind to each other and how great it feels to give and receive compliments. I have been hearing children give each other some lovely compliments and really smiling about them.
Thank you to Vicky and Jess who led Maths Parent workshops on Wednesday and Thursday. Thank you to those of you who attended them. If you have any questions about your child’s learning please do not hesitate to ask.
We have purchased new equipment for our playground which the children are really enjoying. Thank you to Sharon and all our lunchtime supervisors for introducing and organising this. We want playtimes and lunchtimes to be a happy and safe environment for all the children and an enjoyable time.
Have a lovely weekend.
