We are now overdue with our payment for the London Trip.
There will be a letter on the way home very soon. We totally understand that people have concerns about the trip and would like to reassure you that we are taking every precaution possible.
We are travelling with a company called study experiences and are in regular contact with them.
Our hotel is based in Croydon, Out of Central London. I would also like to point out that the children will not be wandering around London, but will be on and off the bus at their various locations.
We are taking advice from the Home Office and also our regulatory bodies, such as the School Travel Forum, regarding safety to travel in London.

We will be having a meeting for you to discuss any concerns and issues that you might have.
Just to let you know that I have had a thank you letter from the Cystic Fibrosis Trust today. Our children decided that they wanted to support this charity and have started a collection at snack time. So far they have raised £88.72.
Well done to our amazing children. Always thinking of ways to make a difference.

Hopefully you will have had a letter this week from Exemplar Education. This is a Maths and English programme for you to use at home.
If you could return the slips to say if you are interested or not we get some free accounts for our children to use in school.
Just a reminder that the National Tests will be taking place from Wednesday 3rd May until Wednesday 10th May. This is for all children from Year 2 to Year 6.
We all want our children to do well in any test, but it is important to recognise that there is no pass or fail in the national tests. The tests are just one piece of evidence about your child’s skills in reading and numeracy and the best way to prepare your child is to make sure that they are not worried or anxious.
You can find more advice and guidance on supporting your child from Education begins at home.
You will be getting another attendance letter today. Here is a reminder of the criteria.
We are asking you all to set the highest of expectations for attendance.
Our target is a minimum of 97% attendance!
Below is an explanation of the relationship between attendance and achievement at school. The rewards for good attendance are clear. Pupils are more likely to enjoy school, achieve better results and have increased life chances.
We will be updating you about your child’s attendance on a half-termly basis.
Your colour coded letter tells you the attendance figures for your child for this half term. This will be different to the last letter you had.
The figures below relate to the end of Year Target.
Not missing any lessons
Missing about 10 lessons
Missing about 20 lessons
Missing about 30 lessons
Missing about 8 days of school. It will be difficult to catch up on this lost learning from about 40 lessons
Missing about 2 weeks of school
Missing 14 days of school. This is almost 3 weeks which is a significant amount of education to lose.
92% and below
Missing more than 3 weeks of education. A serious loss of learning which is likely to have a detrimental effect on achievement and life chances.
We do understand and are aware of different circumstances. We do have a fantastic Family Support Team available for a chat. Miss Parry is the main contact for any attendance issues so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
I am sure that working together we can improve our attendance.
Another term gone...time flies!
Eisteddfod, Sports Competitions, School trips, endless visitors, Open Evenings are just a few of the activities we have fitted in over the last term.
It was great to see so many adults spending time with Early Years and Year 4 this morning sharing the learning and celebrating achievements.
Many thanks for your continued support. As always we are here to help. Never hesitate to get in touch.
Have a great Easter, Pasg Hapus!
See you back in school on Tuesday 25th April
You will now be able to get our school uniform from Tesco.
