68 Please turn over As we come to the end of a very busy term our KS2 children have been busily rehearsing for the end of school performance and our choir for their evening at the Colston Hall. Please note the change of date for the ‘What a Knight’ performance. A separate letter has been sent explaining the reason. Next term is very busy so look out for regular updates via the text messaging service. A special thanks goes to Mrs. Cavanagh for donating a Gazebo to the PTA. I would also like to thank Mrs. Stuckey for continuing to coach netball and Mr. Little & Mr. Rosenberg for running the chess club. The School Website is regularly updated. Recent additions to the website have been : -The revised Behaviour Policy -Reading at Frenchay leaflet -Information on the curriculum being taught in each class. Dinner Money: Please can the correct money be sent in on a Monday as it is difficult to find change, especially mid- week when all money has been banked. We would prefer you to pay by cheque as this avoids money falling out of envelopes before it reaches the office. Mrs. Downes is happy to receive a cheque for a term in advance if your child has a regular dinner pattern and you mark it on the envelope or back of the cheque. Remember Inset days and School trips affect the number of dinners ordered. Text messages are sent out Friday updating you on how much credit/debit you have remaining Balances on accounts need to be £0.00 at the end of the summer term.

68 continued Mrs. Sandra Allen Head Teacher REMEMBER all Newsletters are on the school website and all activities and dates on a weekly basis. MEDICINES - In line with the Governors medical policy we can only issue medication that is for severe allergies and long-term illness. Please ensure all asthma inhalers are in school and in date. Please contact Mr. Medlicott or Mrs. Downes if you have not filled in a Health Care Plan. Lunchtime routines: I would like to clarify our arrangements at lunchtime ; all KS1 & KS2 children having a school dinner go into the dinning hall first together with the reception packed lunches. Children who have special dietary needs or are vegetarians are served first and table by table the rest of the children collect their lunch. As our food is cooked off premises usually only enough vegetarian food is sent over for those children whose parents indicate they wish their child to have this option every day at the beginning of the school year. Children having sandwiches in KS1 & KS2 enter the dining hall as soon as there is space for them, usually just after 12.30pm. All children are encouraged to eat as much as they can and are allowed extra time if they are still eating when the bell goes for the start of lessons. When the weather is warm and dry KS2 children have their packed lunch outside. Music lessons: if your child is in KS2 from September and you would like them to have music lessons in either woodwind, brass or violin, please see Mrs. Downes for details. Dogs are recognised as an important part of life for families that includes walking to and fro school. However, we are mindful that some children find the presence of dogs on the school premises stressful, even frightening. It is for this reason the school does not allow dogs on the school grounds.
