Letter from Headteacher October 17th 2016

Dear Parents/Carers

 We ask you very kindly to consider “Safety First” at the school gate when collecting your children from the juniors at the end of the day – please see my separate e-mail sent to you on Friday 14th October.

TEMPEST: The closing date for school photographs is this Thursday 20th October 2016 – please ensure you return your envelopes before then if you want to order. Thank you.

THE BOOK PEOPLE. The school has set up an account with THE BOOK PEOPLE. When parents visit their website to purchase books, the school will receive 10% of the value of every order that parents place. Just log in to the following website www.thebookpeople.co.uk/school-fundraising and enter code 3jPTMzP. You will also receive information on current special offers of 3 for 2 on fiction. This code expires January 10th. A separate e-mail will be sent with full details. Any money raised will be used to purchase books for the school.

CONWY FAMILY INFORMATION SERVICE & TEAM AROUND THE FAMILY – a copy of their information leaflet is attached for your information.

PTA FILM NIGHTS – these were a great success and raised £350 – thank you for your support and to those who helped on the day.

TRIPS. There are a number of trips organised for the week after half term.  Please can you ensure that trips are paid for before half term and that consent forms have been returned to school.

e-SAFETY: The website https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ is a guide to internet safety and safe surfing for young people from Think U Know. Learn about online safety when using blogs, chatting, online gaming, P2P and other forms….
