Fri 24 May              INSET Day – school closed for children but open 10-12 for Parents’ Consultation Day

 

Parents’ Consultation Day

As listed above, this will take place on Friday 24th May.  This is an opportunity for you to visit

your child’s class, look at the work on display and in their books and discuss progress with your

child’s teacher.  Classes will be open 10-12am.

 

As you know, we are very keen to work with you to raise attendance figures in school.  This is an issue which has been brought up in the last three OFSTED inspections and, of course, it can affect our OFSTED rating.  At present our attendance figures is 94.5%, which is below the National average of 96%.  I know that it cannot be helped if children are ill but could I urge you all to think carefully about taking holidays in school time as this has a sizeable impact on our attendance figures.

Finally, can I thank you all for your generosity last term, we raised £65 for Red Nose Day, the Friends raised £220 on their Quiz night and our swimmers raised £256 for Butterfly Space in Malawi in the Thornbury Swimarathon.  Well done and thank you to everyone who took part in these events!

 

Yours sincerely,

Debbie Dix
