    Things - Week 5 ...or 6

    After a midweek start to the term, is this week 5.5 or week 6? Either way, there's only one to go until half term, and we're already around 14% of the way through the school year!

    This week's newsletter refreshes the calendar dates to the end of term and gives details of what's happening next with our transfer to a new data management system.

    Our move to the Arbor system will continue throughout the Autumn term as we gradually switch on new features and move to these from services like ParentPay. Even this School Jotter app will become slightly redundant since we ought to be able to distribute newsletters digitally direct to parents in the Arbor parent app.

    Week 1- updates and information

    Despite feeling a little salty that the good weather waited until THIS week to appear, it's been a fantastic help in making the first three days go well in school.
    Children have quickly settled into new classes and familiar routines, as well as some changes.

    A key change to the day has been to return to our pre-pandemic lunch hour, which has necessitated some juggling to get everyone through service and seated promptly. We were thrilled to be told that we'd been successful in applying for funding from the Hallburn Windfarm for new dining room tables at the start of this week (the existing ones date back to at least 2001). New tables that will offer more seating are now on order and expected by the end of this half term.

    The attached newsletter covers some information updates, and particularly an increase in the days when PE will be happening and how we're hoping to simplify that tricky 'what do they need to wear?' conundrum that faces parents!

    Please remember that the school website is regularly updated and includes information on everything you ought to know about school-life. In particular, there is a 'parent information handbook' that you are advised to read at least annually - termly would be even better - to remind yourself of routines and expectations.

    have a great weekend, conscious that these may be the last throes of the Great British Summer, and we'll see everyone on Monday to make a start proper!

    Mr Spencer
