This week has been another busy week starting with more Early Years 2020 visits.   


On Tuesday we held our first Governing body meeting and we are pleased to welcome Elaine Jones as our new community governor. Elaine is the Curate at Sawley and has already been in to school to deliver an assembly. Our Governing body work hard to ensure the school is complying with all policies and procedures as well as supporting all staff with curriculum initiatives. We feel very lucky to have such a proactive team.   


On Thursday Switzerland class delivered the first class assembly of this school year - and what a spectacular event it was. The personality of the class was truly on display and everyone left the hall with a smile on their faces. Well done Switzerland!   Next week it is the turn of Miss Aldis and Mexico class.


Next Wednesday is our parent drop in session from 3.30 till 5.00. This is an opportunity to pop in to school to see how your child has settled in and chat to the teacher about anything. This is a chance to check out if you need to know about your child's general progress or if you want to know how to further support your child at home with homework. They are not scheduled appointments so for any personal information an appointment for another time should be made. The 'formal' parent's evening is on December 11th; appointment letters for this will be sent out nearer the time.


Thank you to all parents who are remembering to walk through the side gate when dropping off and picking up for before and after school club-Mr Pitchfork is happy!


If you require a holiday club place either for the upcoming INSET day or for half term week please let the office know now as we need to ensure staffing numbers are appropriate. A month's notice is required for this.


Have a happy weekend.
