Dear Parents and Carers,
We are all gearing up to the Olympics and we will be looking at the Olympic values over the next few weeks in assemblies. On Saturday 30th June at 10am, the Olympic Torch will be passing through Tamworth if anyone is interested in seeing it.
Year 1 Phonics Screening.
Next week Mrs Sharpe will be checking all year 1 children for their phonic knowledge. This is a short check and children should not be worried or distressed about it. Results of the check will be sent to the Department for Education, but as it’s the first year, it will be interesting to see how well children get on. Parents will be informed on the results towards the end of the summer term.
Jubilee Tea Party
Despite Soggy weather, School & Friends enjoyed a highly successful tea party just before half-term. The children certainly enjoyed running stalls and creating games for everyone to play. A massive £535 was raised by children and Friends which is Fantastic. A Huge Thank You to everyone for all your support. Some children also joined the Church Garden Fete on the Saturday and again Thank you for your support.
All Tesco vouchers should now be in school. If you have any more please send them in on Monday 18th June as the office will be sending them in next week.
Sending in Money to school.
There is a lot of trip, club and dinner money coming into the school office at the moment. The office would really appreciate it if all parents could send in any money in a labelled envelope with the child’s name, the amount and what it is for on it.
We have been informed that next week the hot meals will be Menu 2. Currently every morning the children are told the two options and are asked which meal they want. Please make all School Dinner cheques payable to Leicestershire County Council. Dinners are currently £1.95 per meal. Also, if your child is going to be late can you please ring the office to let them know to still order a meal for your child.
Driving / Parking on School Grounds & Walking down the main entrance
Please do not walk down the main entrance. We realise there was a couple of occasions when the gate was accidentally left locked last term for which we apologise. Also, there have been a few complaints of the amount of cars which are pulling up directly outside the school building.
