Need To Know 24th November 2017

 

What’s going on next week?

Need to know:

  • Reminder – toys are not allowed in school. This includes slime, cards and spinners.
  • The popular ‘Understanding children Solihull course’ is running again at St Peter’s. It had overwhelmingly positive feedback last year. Read here. 
  • Up until Christmas we are trialling staggered breaktimes (spliting R/KS1 and KS2). The aim is provide more space for sports and activities. I have asked the children and staff to give me feedback at the end of the term as to how well it is going.
  • If any parent is finding it difficult to get childcare for younger siblings for the Christmas performances, please contact me. 
  • I’ve had lots of positive responses to the speeding note. I would hate for anyone to get hurt or injured because someone has broken the speed limit or parked illegally. There really are no excuses for this. The pupils and police will be patrolling to see if this makes a difference.
  • Now is the time to apply for your place in Reception at the school. The deadline is 15th January. More details here: https://new.devon.gov.uk/educationandfamilies/school-information/apply-for-a-school-place/apply-for-a-primary-school-place. Please see us if you need any support.
  • Dog owners – please be mindful where you leave your dog. Some of them are blocking entrances/wall ways, which is especially difficult for those afraid of dogs.
  • Learn about Operation Encompass here (Domestic Abuse).
  • 2019 admission policy here for consultation.
  • VACANCIES – Clerk to governors, Play leader and TA job advert here.
  • Fancy helping grow sports and PE at the school? See here – we need your help!

Coming soon:

  • FRIDAY  – 24th November PTA Christmas Fayre from 5-8pm – spread the word!
  • Friday 1st December- Budleigh Late Night Shopping Event. We will be parading through the town and singing hymns outside the Methodist Church.
  • All Christmas dates updated below. Please check.

Reminders:

  • You may qualify for Pupil Premium and Free School Meals. Please see here. It can dramatically help the school in these times of decreasing education finances.
