Weekly Newsletter 17/09/21 - Important Information



Dear Parents and Carers,


A Guide to Year booklets

Next week, we will be emailing you a guide to your child’s year group. This is so you know more about your child’s year group, key contacts and other useful information.

One of our school targets this year is to improve our communication with parents and we hope this document will help with this. We are also working on a new school website which will contain much more information, useful links and guidance that will be really useful for children, parents and staff.


Leaving the KS2 school grounds

Please ensure you and your children leave the school grounds at the end of the school day by 3-30 at the latest. We do understand that children like to use the gym equipment after school, and we are happy for them to do so under your supervision. However, all adults and children must leave by 3-30 at the latest. Thank you for your cooperation with this.


Parking

Please take care not to park over residents driveways. This week, we have received several complaints from local residents which does not reflect well on our school community. I have advised residents to report any persistent offenders to the council. I do not want anyone to receive a parking ticket but we must be understanding of our local residents. It is never acceptable to park over a residents driveway. Legal parking in Amersham Road is limited and where this is not possible, we would suggest using the Central Park car

Free School Meals - Please sign up if you are eligible




Dear Parents and Carers,


Free School Meals - Please sign up if you are eligible


The Government uses the number of children registered as eligible for Free School Meals as the basis for allocating extra funding to our schools. This is called ‘Pupil Premium’ funding and it has fantastic potential for supporting all of the pupils at our schools. That’s why it is so important that we have as many eligible parents and families sign up as possible.


If you apply and are successful here are some of the benefits:


● You will receive a £40 voucher per child, per year to assist with the cost of school uniform redeemable at Premier Schoolwear.

● The school can provide assistance with contributions towards school trips and residential visits.

● After school clubs can continue to be free of charge

● Access to the Holiday Activities and Food Programme during the Christmas holidays and future school holidays for as long as government funding is continued


Remember - you don’t actually have to eat the school dinners!

Some children or families are put off because they think that Free School Meals status means that they have to eat the school lunches. This is not true! Should you prefer to bring a packed lunch from home, that is absolutely fine. But the school will still get this important funding. Even KS1 children who already receive Universal Free School Meals may still be eligible for this funding.


You may be eligible if you get any of the following:

● Income Support

● income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

● income-related Employment and Support Allowance

● support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

● the guaranteed element of Pension Credit

● Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)

● Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

● Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)


If it is confirmed that your child is entitled to free school meals, they will remain eligible until they finish this phase of schooling (primary) they are in on 31st March 2022. There will be no need to inform the school or council if your personal circumstances change.


What to do now:

You can make your application on the Havering Council website:

https://www.havering.gov.uk/info/20006/schools_and_education/431/school_support


OR if you prefer, you can contact the school office and give your details and permission and we can check your eligibility for you.


Thank you!

Weekly Newsletter- 10/09/2021 - Important Information





Dear Parents and Carers,

Y6 Secondary School Open Evenings (this is a message from the Schools Admissions Department)

Given the current concern around Covid-19, some Havering Secondary Schools have taken a decision to amend/cancel the initially published open evening arrangements. Please visit the schools website or contact them directly for the latest open evening information. Some schools have indicated that these events may now need to be pre-booked to allow schools to control numbers and some have taken a decision to only hold a virtual open evening. In all cases where parents are allowed on school premises, appropriate PPE and social distancing measures will be required.

ABACUS Breakfast Club

Application forms are available via the ABACUS breakfast club each morning or from the school office. The breakfast club is located in the Dinner Hall via the KS2 playground. Parents must escort their child to the door for each session.

Are you looking for an after school performing arts class that will develop your child’s confidence level and develop key life skills?

Updated rewards system


Golden Certificate
Within the classroom, we use a “traffic light” system (gold, green, yellow, red) which is linked to The Mead Creed (set out below). For children who make exceptionally good choices linked to The Mead Creed, they may be moved to gold. If they remain on gold at the end of the school day, we contact the child's parents to let them know that they have enjoyed an excellent day; we know how lovely it is for parents to be told about their child making positive choices in school. We also present the child with a Golden Certificate in Celebration Assembly on Friday.


The Mead Creed
  1. Follow instructions.
  2. Speak and listen politely.
  3. Work quietly, stay on task.
  4. Use kind hands, kind feet and kind faces.
  5. Look after our property and environment

Where a child makes a poor choice and finish the school day on red, we will contact the parent to explain what had happened. At the start of every day, all children start on green.


Team Points
Each child is a member of the red, blue, yellow and green team. Team Points are awarded for positive behaviours around the school and are by all staff members in a range of places (e.g. assemblies, corridors, playtime, lunchtime). Pupils earn team points for their team and the weekly score is shared in Celebration Assembly with the winning team having the trophy and team colour displayed for the week.


Class Marble jars

Class teachers agree with their class on one focus for every half term and is linked to something the class needs to be better at (e.g. clearing away at the end of a lesson, getting quickly changed for PE). When the class achieves this target, they are awarded a marble. Once the marble jar is full (it needs 30 marbles), the class votes on a 1 hour lesson of their choice.


Achievement Certificates
Stickers are awarded for children’s Achievement Book for personal achievements, (academic, sporting etc). Once the children have completed their Achievement Book, they are awarded a certificate in Celebration Assembly and receive 10 Team Points for their team.


Star Writers, Star Readers and Star Mathematicians
Children who have completed some fantastic learning will be awarded a certificate in Celebration Assembly.


Mathletics Award
Children who have completed a level in their Mathletics are awarded a certificate.


Attendance-opoly

Each class has an attendance target for the year which is 0.3% higher than their attendance from last year. At the end of each week, any class who has beaten their target get to roll a dice in Celebration Assembly and may win a class prize. We are launching this from next week.
