ST WOOLOS PRIMARY SCHOOL NEWSLETTER 7.9.18
Welcome back to everyone after the summer holidays!
The children look really smart in their uniform and have made a fantastic start back!
Our new Reception children have really made a great start! ☺
We’re looking forward to all of our Nursery children joining us on Monday.
Welcome also to the new children who have joined us from other schools and are settling into classes across the school! I know that they will settle in really quickly and make friends easily.
I am pleased to welcome Miss Murphy (BA Hons PGCE) to our staff. She is taking the Year 5/6 class and is a very welcome addition to our staff.
Each child has brought home a Contact Details card to be updated.
Please return these by Friday morning at the latest so that they can go into one of three draws in Nursery, Foundation Phase and Key Stage Two, for a £5.00 gift card.
These cards are really important because they provide us with up to date details. If at any time during the year you change your phone number, address or emergency contacts, please let Mrs Kidd or Mrs Martin, in the office, know.
Newsletters, Diary Dates and Topic Letters
If you are a new parent, it will be helpful for you to know that a newsletter will always be sent out on a Monday and spare copies are always available in the office. If your child is ill, their class teacher will save their newsletter to be given to them when they return.
The newsletter is also always published on our website www.stwoolosprimary.org.uk and you are able to look back and see previous ones at any time.
This year to save wasting paper, from next week, we will only send home a newsletter to the eldest sibling in the family except when there are forms where individual responses are needed.
Topic Letters and Diary Dates sheets will be sent home on Monday 10th September.
Spare copies of all of these will always be available at the office if you ever need any.
Please download the Schoop app (if you haven’t already done so) because we plan to use this throughout the year. The code is 3690.
In order to help children leave safely at the end of the school day, there are a number of exits in use. These are:
Nursery and Reception Nursery and Reception doors (Under canopy)
Class 1H and Class 1/2D Lower front door
Class 2S Side Reception door (By the mural)
Class 3P and Class 3/4B Side Reception door (By the mural)
Classes 4J and 5M Front main door
Class 5/6M and 6W Side door by yards (morning door)
If you are waiting at the main front entrance by the steps at hometime (4J and 5M) please help us by waiting outside the gates. This is because there is not enough room for children to come down the steps and to walk either to the front or the side if parents are waiting in the space.
If you are waiting at the front infant door (1H and 1/2D), please stand at the sides to keep the main gate area clear.
Thank you for helping with this.
Side Entrance Door
Two staff (either Mrs Fowler, Mrs Parkinson, Mrs Luckett or Miss Winfield) will be at the side door in the morning, from 8.40am, ten minutes before the start of the school day. They will always pass on messages to teachers and to me. At 8.45 the wooden gate will be opened.
Foundation Phase parents, please wait on the lower yard with your child.
Junior parents, please send your child to the top yard. You are welcome to wait by the railings if you wish.
I would really appreciate your help with this request because, with large numbers of children and limited entrance space, I want to make the morning entry calm for everyone.
Next week we have a Roald Dahl week and children have a competition with them tonight.
I am sure that this new school year will go really well because the children have been amazing so far!
PS. Please put your child’s name on every item of clothing (including their PE kit, school bag and lunchbox). Thank you!
