Summer Two is here!
Welcome back to the home straight of the academic year. May I begin by thanking you for being so supportive with our recent improvements to school security and safeguarding. They are a proactive reaction not only to the current events going on around the nation, but also to a few parental responses on the recent safety surveys. The gate is relatively heavy, due to the recoil spring needed to ensure the gate closes itself once it has been opened. I am sure we will all get used to it soon. Please remember safeguarding is a responsibility of us all as school stakeholders. Please also remember safety reasons to use the pedestrian footpath and not the car park driveway, particularly those attending breakfast club, because staff are driving in at that time.
This half-term is jam-packed with events, such as residentials, performances and fayres. With an improvement in the weather (not today though), it is hoped Sports' Day will be another success and trips can take place without the need for a raincoat. Years 5 and 6 rehearsals are going strong and there have been some very memorable scenes - you are in for a treat.
The PTA also have events going on this half-term, such as another Disco and non-uniform days in return for Tombola prizes.
Year 2 have their class collective worship next week on Thursday 15th June at 10:15AM and on Wednesday 21st June we are having a whole-school Read, Share and Review session. This will be a bit longer than previous ones to allow for those with siblings at Homefield to see each child equally. It will run into the end of a normal school day, so pupils will be able to go home straight after. A notice will be sent home reminding you all soon.
This week's winning class for attendance was Year 5 with 98.07%. Kingfishers remain in the lead with House Points and have now broken the 10,000 barrier.
