Weekly Newsletter 14-01-22 - Important Information

Dear Parents and Carers,

The 2 Johns’ E-Safety Parent and Carer Workshop

We would love for you to join us on Wednesday 23rd February at 9am for an E-Safety workshop which will be run by The 2 Johns’ . The 2 Johns are both qualified Police Trainers, CEOP Ambassador trainers and have a wealth of practical knowledge and experience to support, guide and inform parents, carers, staff and pupils through a digital age and learning to stay safe online. We look forward to seeing you there!

Key stage 1 playground

Next week some work will be taking place in the KS1 playground area. Which will cause some disruption to

the usual drop of and pick up routine. We are expecting work to take place after drop off on Monday 17th January so we do not anticipate any changes to normal morning drop off. On Monday and Wednesday

afternoon year 1 children will be released to parents in the junior playground on the junior side of the

building. Please enter via gate 1. Reception children will leave via their normal playground.

On Wednesday afternoon the Reception children will be released class by class from the main door next

to the Nursery where they will enter in the morning. To ensure that this is done safely we will stagger the end of day collection times- Antigua-2.50pm, St Lucia-2.55pm and Barbados-3.00pm.

Should there be any changes to these details we will send details via School Ping. Thank you for your understanding.


PE Kit

Please make sure that your child has their PE Kits on their PE days. All children wear Green/black PE shorts or Jogging bottoms, white t-shirt and trainers. Year 4 now has PE on Thursday as they are no longer attending Swimming lessons.


We have had some concerns raised by our neighbours about parents and carers who are continuing to park unsafely and or block driveways. Please be mindful of parking safely. We appreciate that parking at the beginning and end of the school day can be difficult, please respect one another by speaking kindly and avoid using inappropriate language.


After a very successful 1st term at Mead Primary school I am thrilled to be able to open our books to new pupils. The first session is offered as a FREE TRIAL!
