Severe Weather Arrangements

We would like to clarify the arrangements for severe weather conditions. We will always make every effort to keep the school open but there may be unavoidable circumstances which force closure to occur. If we do experience severe weather resulting in hazardous conditions, we may be forced to close the School.

Our recent newsletter

9th February 2017 Newsletter

Dear All,

We are issuing the newsletter today as the school is closed tomorrow because of the staff development day. The school will re open as normal for term 4 on Monday 20th February.

We have introduced a new system for lunch times from this week, on a trial basis . The children who take hot dinners will eat in the dining hall with packed lunches eating in the classrooms. This means that the dinner hall is calmer and less chaotic and thus the children are getting served quicker and able to have a longer playtime instead of waiting for tables to be cleared for each sitting.

I was a little disappointed when I saw the numbers of children eating packed lunches. I know that there are varying reasons for this but a hot prepared meal is really important to sustain the children throughout the day. We now have a new cook in place still with our dining company Contract Dining– the portions are a good size and the variety is excellent– quite a lot of the staff as well as myself are now eating the school dinners. It is certainly worth investigating even if it is only for a week. Later in the year we will trial a session where children can have a free dinner for a day with parents invited so that they can come in and see the dinners for themselves.

Dobbies in Gillingham very kindly donated some bird food and other seeds and bulbs for our gardening club. We are very grateful to Miss Lisiecka, mother of Gabrielle in Y5 for the contact.

Have an enjoyable February break

Mrs Kathy Sexton

British Values

The Government have made it a requirement to “create and enforce a clear expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs”.

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is a sum of money allocated in addition to core school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers.
