Although we are not governed by the statutory holidays for schools, we follow the ESF schools calendar. During every year we have 5 teacher training days built into the calendar. This is in addition to the contact days with children. These CPD days are added onto our calendar not removed from the contact days with children.
Abacus Calendar for 2019-2020 is available here.
Box of Hope
This year we will be again participating in the Box of Hope and your child should have brought home a leaflet explaining what this is and how to participate.
Here is a link to the details just in case you missed it. http://boxofhope.org/home/main/en/
Please note the idea is to fill a whole box with your child, letting them choose some items so they feel part of the process. Please note ALL ITEMS SHOULD BE NEW and your box should be complete. Please do not send in old toys or half the items for a box.
These boxes will then be passed on as Christmas presents to those less fortunate children.
The deadline for boxes to be delivered to school is 8th November.
Thank you to all those that attending the fair meeting last week. It looks like we will have enough parent volunteers to plan the event which is great.
Please keep the date for your diary – 23rd November
