HALF TERM MESSAGE

We hope you all have a wonderful half term holiday. We will see the children back at school on Monday 4th June.

STAFF UPDATE

After the half term holiday Mrs Wilson will be teaching in Class 2. Mr Bremner will continue to teach in Class 3.

YEAR 6 PUPILS TRANSFERRING TO CHURCH STRETTON SECONDARY SCHOOL

On Thursday 7th June at 9.00 am staff from Church Stretton Secondary School will be coming in to meet and talk to the Year 6 children who will be transferring in September.

BEGINNING AND END OF DAY ARRANGEMENTS

It has been noticed that some parents are bringing their children into school as early as 8.30 am. Please do not bring your child into the building until 8.45am. We cannot supervise their safety before this (cleaning chemicals out etc.) and teachers may not be in their classrooms or will be preparing for the day ahead. If you do need to drop your child off early please arrange pre-school care (£2 per half hour) with Miss Carter.

Also please could all parents make sure arrangements are in place to pick up their children from school at 3.15pm promptly or promptly at the end of clubs and after school care. We understand that exceptional circumstances can delay people on occasion, and should this be the case, please contact us so that we are aware. However, we have noticed that a number of children are regularly picked up late. This is unfair on the children and delays everybody’s work. If your child is not picked up punctually you will be charged £2 which is the rate per half hour for after school care.

CROSS COUNTRY CLUB

There will be no cross country after half term. The second half of the summer term is always very busy with lots of other activities going on. It has therefore been decided to cancel the club for these few weeks. It will resume in the autumn term.

SUMMER FAYRE

Please note the change of date for the Summer Fayre. This event will now take place on Thursday, July 5th from 5pm. Children, families and the local community are invited to join in the fun, which will include the traditional wet slide, a barbecue, bottle and pudding stalls, obstacle course, bouncy castle and welly throw to name a few. More information to follow closer to the time.

DOGS ON SCHOOL GROUNDS

Will parents please not bring dogs onto the school playground or field. Thank you.

SCHOOL PRIVACY & CONSENT NOTICE

In accordance with the new General Data Protection Regulation which comes into force on 25th May, a privacy and consent notice was sent out with the newsletter the week before last. Would parents please complete page 2 and return to the office as soon as possible if they have not already done so. (There is no need to complete anything in Part 3). Thank you.

SPONSOR A METRE UPDATE

A quarter of the playground squares have been sponsored in our Sponsor A Metre Appeal – that’s 100 square metres so far! This is a fantastic achievement and a big thank you goes to everybody who has donated. Thank you for your continued support. Blue sponsor slips are available from reception for anyone wishing to donate. Thank you for your continued support

SUMMER WEATHER PREPARATION

At Rushbury, your children spend a significant amount of time learning outdoors. With the summer term fast approaching, this is a reminder to send your children prepared for sunny weather. We advise hats and sun-cream for protection. Sun-cream can be kept in school bags or given to the class teacher for safe keeping. If you would like us to store sun-cream (for your child to put on themselves), please make sure the bottle is clearly labelled with your child’s name. Thank you.
