Dear Parents,

Well the sun didn’t last long did it! At least the weather was glorious for the children on the Whitby residential. They all had a great time and returned feeling very proud of their achievements. Thank you to all the staff that gave up their time to make it possible.

Welcome to the parents of the children who will be joining us next year we are very pleased you will be part of our school.

On Monday the children in Y1 and Y2 enjoyed a morning of cricket. They had a great time at Hadfield cricket club learning some skills.

Last night we were invited to see some of last year’s Y6s at Glossopdale, they shared their work and their stories of their new school. It was lovely to see them doing so well.

On Friday Eagles will be leading our Assembly just after 9am do join us if you can.

Tomorrow is also the PTA scoot and skate after school – weather permitting. Unfortunately the forecast is for cold and wet.

As you know we are part of PEGS, a collaboration of local schools. Being part of this group helps us continue to improve the education we can offer your children. This collaboration has led to a Pupil forum called High Peak Kids Council. HPKC has decided they would like to have a litter picking week around our schools next week. If you have any litter pickers or gardening gloves we could use we would be very grateful. The day we do it will depend on the weather I am hoping for Wednesday or Thursday.

A quick reminder about medicines. We are happy to administer proscribed medicines during the school day but you need to fill out a form detailing things like dosage. There is a copy of the form on the website to help those of you who cannot pop into the office in the morning. The medicine and permission need to be given in by an adult not left in school bags. Sometimes we are asked to give pain relief such as Calpol. We are prepared to administer this with a permission form but we will not accept bottles of paracetamol in school, we ask that you bring sachets. The reason for this is that paracetamol overdoses are incredibly serious and sometimes the side effects are irreversible. We would all hate for a child to get hold of a bottle of paracetamol and do serious damage to themselves.

A few of the Kestrels still don’t have PE kits in school. They all need shorts, t-shirt and pumps.
