Weekly Update information Term 4

Term 4 2023

Week 2

Dear parents and carers,

Well, what a difference a week makes! 

Not many reminders or news this week::

The website has now been launched and it needs lots of bits added and some lovely photos but the foundations are there. We will endeavour to add all emails and information on there as we go from now on - so you can refer back to them.

Reading week and the book fair after school :

 Please come along and buy (or order) some books. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday after school. All the children have been to look at the books today.


World book day is on Thursday so please encourage your child to come to school as a book character - remember to send the book in with them. We do not want fancy costumes - something you have made together is perfect and helps your child to be able to talk about their character more.

Some of the children from Roseacre will be coming up to read and share their favourite stories.

If you are able on Friday we would welcome you ( or a member of your family) to come in and share a book with your child ( and maybe others). Please book on our booking system so we know how many people to expect

Teacher Meetings: 

Please can I remind you to book these- I have just looked through and seen there are quite a few parents who still need to reserve their slots.. Can I also politely keep to the time of your booked appointment - once people start to arrive late it is hard for the class teachers to keep it all on track ( and avoid keeping you waiting).

Passwords for collecting after clubs:

A little note that when you booked your child's place in an after-school club you were asked to provide a password. We have these as not all the teachers know all the adults as they have children in different classes. We will be asking you for the password - please can you tell whoever is collecting what it is as it speeds up the handing over at the end. (We do have a copy of them if you have forgotten).

Many thanks and best wishes.

Week 1

Dear parents and Carers,

So sorry for the delay in my email this week - had a few other bits that needed my attention.....

Can I firstly thank you all for the huge response on the Parent Questionnaire. We can only see the graphs of the response  not the comments but the inspectors have given us the feeling of them and they were so overwhelmingly positive - so thank you so much from all of us.

The framework has changed so much since our last inspection - although we do not know the outcome as yet you can all be so proud of your little people as they were all wonderful!

Tomorrow is non uniform as we are collecting for our Opal lose parts  There will be some tables in the front of the school for you to put the bits on at drop off.

Term 4 curriculum information for all year groups is also attached - and on the new website.

The new website has been set to go live - it is no where near finished and needs lots of photos and sections filling - but I just wanted to get it live and thought today would be a good day to launch this.

After school provision has started this week and the children are really enjoying it - there are still spaces available if you would like to book - through to the end of the school year .
