Your help is always appreciated. Please let your child’s teacher or any teacher know if you have any skill, experience or knowledge that could help with any of these topics.

 

 

HOMEWORK

 

We have listened to your views in our latest survey and have made some changes. Weekly homework will involve spellings, reading, times table and other key skills. A half termly menu of other homework tasks will be available to fit in with every family lifestyle too.

 

 

ABSENCE IN SCHOOL TERM TIME

 

Please may I remind you that holidays during term time WILL NOT be authorised except in rare, exceptional circumstances.

 

TRIM TRAIL AND MAZE

 

Please may I remind all families, but particularly our new families, the trim trail and maze should not be used before or after school. This is because it is not supervised by staff and therefore we cannot take any liability for possible accidents to children. The children have plenty of playtimes during the day to use these fun activities.

 

 

CHILDREN’S BELONGINGS DELIVERED AFTER THE START OF THE SCHOOL DAY

 

Please could you make sure that your children have everything they need for the school day before they come to school. This includes items such as lunch boxes, water bottles, musical instruments, coats, PE kits etc. These late deliveries cause inconvenience to our busy office and disruption to the classes whilst lessons are in process.

All late items that are dropped off after the start of the school day will be kept in a box in the office until your child or class teacher can visit the office during break or lunchtime.

 

 

HEALTHY SCHOOLS

 

If your KS2 child has a packed lunch please could you ensure that they have healthy alternatives to crisps and chocolate bars. Snacks are permitted if divided into small Tupperware boxes. Packaged crisps etc are not permitted to ensure that healthy habits are encouraged for the future.

 

You may also want to consider other alternatives to sweets for birthday treats. If sweets are sent in they will be distributed but children will be told to ask Mum, Dad or whoever is looking after them for permission before eating them.

 

  

Dates for your Diary

 

Our diary dates for the year are now published on the website www.st-pauls.leics.sch.uk

Click on ‘Calendar’ in the Parents Info tab and then click on the name of the month you want to see the details of. Further information associated with the dates will be added as the year progresses. Please look through the dates and make a note in your personal diary for any dates that affect you or your child. Key dates are also set out in your child’s Partnership Book.

Please note that ALL DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES.

 

A paper copy of dates may be requested from the office if you do not have access to the internet.

 

I will also send a handy leaflet of general reminders home with the children as well as a list of term times and holidays. Please take the time to read these and put them somewhere handy for future reference.

 

Here’s looking forward to another OUTSTANDING year for St Paul’s!

 

Yours sincerely
