NEWSLETTER—ISSUE 15 – 16th FEBRUARY 2018
Good AŌernoon Everyone
Just a short newsleƩer to ensure we share with you things you need to know before the holiday. One of these
is World Book Day, which we are going to celebrate this year by everyone dressing up as book characters.
Please see details below. Also, please see informaƟon sheet from our Emergency School Closure Policy (full
version on the website). Thank you for toleraƟng the late opening of school on Monday. Closure is always a
last resort but I know that late opening can cause problems for parents, so we won’t do this unless it’s
It has been MulƟ-Faith Week in school this week. As well as learning all about the six main religions of the
world, children have been thinking about peace and harmony and how to make the world a beƩer place.
Every child has produced their own ‘peace ﬂag’ to create a whole school bunƟng that will be put up in the hall
during the ﬁrst week back aŌer half term. Pop in to see it when you have a minute anyƟme aŌer the 2nd
We are looking forward to this aŌernoon’s assembly to see the culminaƟon of KS2 children’s work on mulƟ-
cultural dance with teacher Laura Kendall. Look out for photos on Facebook and in the ﬁrst newsleƩer when
we get back to school aŌer the holiday. Thank you, Laura, the children have really enjoyed this work! Also
during assembly, we will be congratulaƟng Zak Kelly on his fantasƟc achievement - he has only gone and
qualiﬁed to play cricket for the Derbyshire Under 10s!! CongratulaƟons, Zak, your hard work, commitment
and resilience got you there - well done, you deserve it!
I’ve like to thank our Churches Together for very kindly providing refreshments at our parents’ evenings this
week and raising, with your support, £41.83. Thank you to all parents who aƩended the evenings—I do hope
you got out of your session what you wanted. There are sƟll a few parents who, for one reason or another,
didn’t manage to see their child’s teacher. If the teacher hasn’t managed to make contact with you, could I
please ask that you make an appointment when you can? By working together, we can help every child make
the progress of which they are capable. PLEASE ensure that your child completes their homework, and please
also encourage him/her to use MathleƟcs. We are noƟcing that children’s mental maths and arithmeƟc skills
are really sharpening up. Some of this will be due to our focus on daily arithmeƟc but we are sure that those
who regularly use MathleƟcs have made the best progress, so please get your children on it! Thank you.
Have a great half term break, everyone. Let’s hope we all come back feeling healthier and refreshed!

Thank you so much for collecting ‘sweet biscuit wrappers’. We have sent them to
McVities today, with help from Sustainable Hayfield’s Lesley German.
Please keep collecting! We are going to put a collection point in the dining hall after half
term for children on sandwiches to put in their biscuit wrappers, rather than taking them
home. This way, you will know they ate their biscuits AND recycled their wrappers!
NEXT: we will be collecting baby food pouches, such as Ella’s Kitchen. Please send yours
into school. Many thanks.
