Weekly Newsletter - 21/07/22

Friday 21st July 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

It is hard to believe that we are now at the end of another school year. We couldn’t be prouder of the children and all that they have achieved this year. We wish our Year 6 leavers all the best for the next step in their education journey and look forward to welcoming our new Reception children in September. Thank you to all parents and carers for your ongoing support throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 5th September. Have a wonderful Summer!

After 18 years of hard work and dedication to the children, families and staff at Mead, we say goodbye to Mrs Jolly today as she retires. We wish her a long and happy retirement! She will be missed by us all.

Year 6 ‘Fiver Challenge’

This week, the children in Year 6 formed mini companies which were started using a £5 loan per child from the school. They used their money to make and buy different goods which they sold at their after school event yesterday.

I am very pleased to share that after paying back their £5 loan, they raised a fantastic £336-24 which they chose to donate to Cancer Research. What a fantastic event and outstanding gesture!

Phased Uniform

Please remember, our Uniform Policy is a phased introduction. Whilst we expect that children wear the appropriate items of clothing (no leggings), it is not expected that children will wear black trousers, skirts and shorts until you need to buy new uniform.

Parent Hub

A huge thank you for your pre-loved uniform donations and to the volunteers for arranging the sale. Our Parent Hub volunteers have arranged for the uniform to be sold on Monday 1st August and Monday 8th August at Harold Hill library. Details will be shared on the School Facebook page and on the Mead Parents Facebook page with further details closer to the time.
