Weekly Newsletter-6th July 2018

Dear Parents,

It was wonderful to see so many of you at the special events we held this week.

The weather stayed fine for our sports events which were really well attended and it seemed that a good time was had by all. It was lovely to welcome parents/carers to the Mead Farm and I have been inundated with positive comments about the provision. Also many of you have been able to celebrate the hard work our children have put in this term through the year group showcases-What a busy week we’ve had!

The school fete last Saturday was well attended and I would like to extend my thanks to the LFPA who worked really hard to organise it and raised in excess of £800 to support the schools.

Pupils will be bringing their reports home next Friday 13th July, and not on Monday as originally planned. This is so that you can be fully informed of your child’s attainment, as some test results will not be available until after Monday. If, after reading your child’s report, you want to discuss the content with the teacher we have allocated Monday 16th July 15:30-18:00 for parents meetings.

Attendance Update
Well done to Mexico class who had the highest attendance in Y5&6 at 96.9%. A massive well done to N.Ireland who had the highest attendance in LKS2 at an impressive 99.3%.Kenya had the highest attendance in KS1 at 95.7%. We don’t usually include our reception classes in this tally but I must mention Barbados class this week who had 100% attendance and so earn themselves a cupcake party. Well done to them!. The overall attendance was disappointing at 93.7% which is significantly short of our 96% target! 

Have a fabuous weekend
