November 14 Newsletter

Value of the month ‘Cooperation’


Uniform – with this Newsletter is a letter about School Uniform. Please ensure your child wears the appropriate uniform in school. No trainers or boots should be worn around school. Please bring school shoes to change into.


Also, as the weather is now often cold and wet, please make sure your child brings a named coat to school. The children can go out at playtimes, even if it is slightly wet, as long as they have a coat.


 Nut Allergies – we have a child in school with a very severe nut allergy. The School Nursing Team has advised us to inform all parents to avoid sending in any foods that may contain even the slightest traces of nuts. This includes foods such as chocolate spread, not just Nutella.


Medicines at school – please remember to complete a medical permission form from the office if your child has been prescribed medicine by their Doctor. Also please note that children should have had at least 2 doses of prescribed antibiotic before returning to school with the medicine. This gives enough time for any potential adverse reaction to show.


Christmas Dinner – Aspens are offering a traditional Christmas Dinner on Wednesday 17thDecember. The online menu will be updated but will not include the option to order jacket potatoes or Aspsen Packed Lunches that day. Please remember to provide your child with a home packed lunch if they do not wish to order a Christmas meal.


The Lunchtime Dinner Supervisors have asked that parents please provide their children with spoons for yoghurts in their packed lunches. All the staffroom spoons have now been given out and not returned.


Key Stage 1 Nativity play – this will take place in the school hall over 3 dates. The dress rehearsal will be on Monday 8th December at 2pm. There will be an early evening performance at 6pm on Tuesday 9th December and an afternoon performance at 2pm on Thursday 11th December. We would like to encourage any parents with small children or siblings to attend either the dress rehearsal on Monday or the afternoon of Thursday. The evening performance will be for adults and older children. We will be putting up lists next week for parents to complete, to try and anticipate numbers attending each performance for fire safety purposes.


End of term – on Friday 19th December school will finish at 1pm after registration. Please note that there will be no After School Club.
