I am so sorry that you have not had a blog for a couple of weeks and that you have been waiting for me. Thank you for waiting.
As we are coming to the end of the term, you should have received your child's term report. This is to indicate how well they are getting on since the parent meeting in October. If you have not received a report, please come to the school office and we can check to ensure that we have the correct email address for you.
I hope you enjoyed all the pictures on Facebook with the children enjoying spending time with the animals. I know they had an amazing time - thank you kindly to the parents who organised and paid for this wonderful opportunity.
Our youngest children started our Christmas celebrations with a wonderful nativity. It definitely made me very Christmassy and I want to start looking forward to the Big Day.
Next week is our final week of term as we break for Christmas on Friday 15th December. The school closes at 1pm. There are no teacher clubs on this day but the After School Care is open as usual until 6pm. Just to remind you that 2nd January is a teacher training day, and therefore, the children are not in school. All children come back to school on 3rd January 2024.
Consultation for joining Brunel Academies Trust
Thank you to all the parents who came to the meeting on Wednesday, it was great to see you there and you were asking some great questions. Thank you also to the parents who have emailed in, they also were very insightful questions. Parents have until Friday 15th December to put in their views about joining the MAT, but thus far, we have had some positive feedback. If you want any more information or you want to ask me a question, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to email the Chair of Governors, please email email@example.com. If you would like to email Miss Jackie Fieldwick, who is the CEO of Brunel Academies Trust, you can by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
ScholarPack to Arbor
There will be an email coming out to you before the end of the term explaining why we are moving our system from ScholarPack to Arbor. This is not something that we planned on doing but Arbor has bought out ScholarPack and is now slowing down their service and support for this service. Please see the email next week regarding what parents need to do to be prepared for when we come back in January.
