Dear Parents and Carers
It has been another lovely week at The Priory. We just had our first weekly awards assembly of the year and our new Reception pupils have just finished their first full week and left school today with smiles on their faces. We’ve been lucky with the weather and now that the lawnmower has been fixed, Mr Henry has mown the field which looks such a lovely big space to play in.
Parking and road safety
This is a gentle reminder that the car park between the road and the playground is a staff car park so please can parents avoid parking there (we’ll get a better sign to show this).
Please could parents avoid turning cars on the T junction outside school. This makes the area more dangerous and is also disruptive for other drivers.
Parent Welcome Meetings
These meetings are presentations by your child’s class teacher(s) about the organisation, curriculum, rewards and systems in the class this year.
The meetings for Year 2, 3 and 5 will be at 2.30pm on Wednesday 20th September.
The meetings for Years 1, 4 and 6 will be at 2.30pm on Thursday 21st September.
There will not be meetings for Reception class as all parents met with the class teachers at the start of term.
Parents do not need to sign up for these meetings, you can just turn up. Upon arrival, parents should wait in the playground to be directed to the classroom once the pupils have left the classroom to go to assembly.
Staff-led clubs will be starting next week. Parents of the children selected for these clubs will be informed today or Monday at the latest. Lego club for Y3-6 with Mr Cripps will be starting on Thursday, as will Choir Club with Mrs Hughes for Y1-6.
Mr Walsh will be running a lunchtime percussion club for Y5-6 students and these children have volunteered to be part of this club.
We have incorporated as many suggestions and clubs as possible from our recent parental survey.
On this note, could the parent who said on the survey that they can help run cross-country club make themselves known to us? We’d appreciate your help!
We have an increasing number of students who are learning musical instruments. There are still some spaces so please contact the school office if you would like your child to start learning one of the following instruments:
